Kalvin Gets A Muck Rake Massage

Brett made a discovery while he was mucking the other evening...

Kalvin was in the way while Brett was mucking.  So, Brett gently pushed Kalvin with the end of the muck rake.  He was careful because sometimes Kalvin is jumpy about things.  In this case, Kalvin didn't spook.  He barely moved.  So, Brett started sacking Kalvin out with the muck rake.  Kalvin loved it.  Brett demonstrated for me...

The "before" shot

Brett starts raking Kalvin

At first, Kalvin hardly looked up from his hay

Then he started wiggling his lips and stretching his neck

The "after" shot.


  1. Ah yes, feels niiiiiiice. I give my horses rake massages too.

  2. Kalvin certainly seems to be enjoying his raking! Very funny!

  3. Looks like he enjoys it. I'll have to give it a try on mine. It's a good time of year for it.

  4. that's hilarious. My horse loves to be scratched with the shedding blade too. I have never tried the rake :)

  5. Oh that is TOO funny!! I never thought to use the pooper scooper! Ha!!

  6. Too cute! Chrome likes the muck rake too. :D

  7. I can't even tell you how much this made me laugh. Great post and even better discovery!

  8. Today is ethical weather, isn't it?
