Horse Families

Do you know that horses do fun things with their horse families? Some of these things are:
-Halter tag, otherwise known as Face tag, where they nip at each others’ faces and see who will back away first.
-They eat family meals together….about 18 hours a day!
-They scratch each others’ backs. And they can tell each other where they want to be scratched by touching the other horse in that spot. It’s pretty cool to watch!
-Horses will let each other out of their stalls (Boden!)
-Horses will play in water together. Once one gets going, the others will join in. Most horses can be talked into anything by their herd mates.
– Horses will run together and play games to decide who is going to be in charge. They like to take a break from being in charge, so they will let someone else take over “watch duty” for awhile.
How do you see your horses playing?

    I watch the horses all the time at turnout. More people should do that. So much fun. You really begin to understand your horse’s personality by watching him/her at turnout. AND it helps you understand what they mean when they rub their head on you. lol! I agree, Rocky, you guys get along a lot better than most people do since horses are always pretty honest with each other. Love you guys!
