A dust bath! I felt like that after I swept up the winter dust and dirt on my patio. I wasn't all that happy about my bath in the dust.
How do you groom them, if at all?
When George and Alan start to shed, which should be in about a month, I'll curry them until my arm falls off, and sometimes I'll just brush them because it's fun, but otherwise they're self-groomers. Lucy gets a full grooming every time we saddle up.
Oh I'm so glad you wrote this. As a horse owner I always feel a little guilty about not grooming my donkey, but she is truly a walking carpet and loves to embed herself with earth. I use a plastic garden rake on her to remove loose hair this time of year. She loves it. I suggest, if it's windy out and you have lotion on, that you use a rake. They love it and the hair doesn't get on you as precisely.
But do they poof when they walk?
pointless..... kind of how I feel about making my bed.....
