My horse likes to lick to.. I wouldnt say its ocd but she does it pretty often.. How I got it under control tho is I turn the licking into a positive.. So every time she would go to do it I would say kiss. She eventually learned to only lick when I say that. Might want to give that a try.
She is a quarter horse... and a halter horse which are known to me really mouthy..

We have a Morgan Stallion at the farm where my horse is kept that is a licker. It all started about 3.5 months ago when he was put on stall rest for an injury. He only licks the two of us who clean his stall and take care of him. But he will lick our clothes, shoes, hair, faces, arms and hands. He doesn't lick anything else though. I think it is a nervous, bored action on his part, can't blame him for being bored poor guy

Lakota's an obessive licker/lip player. He'll lick my hands all day if I let him and he likes to run his lips over things. And for the most part, its just me he'll do it to.

Do you have salt blocks in their stalls? Cheyenne licks everything because she doesn't have her salt block anymore so we have to get her another one. When she licks me she's trying to get the salt off my hands or the fence or my tack or whatever.

The Morgan I lease loves to lick people she likes. She mainly goes for the hands or sleeves of your jacket. She also licks the bit after you take the bridle off. When if put her away in the pasture and feed her her treat, she licks the fence, but only the spot I was standing at. Weird....

I had an anglo-arab who loved to lick. I named him Romeo, his particular specialty was licking the hands and arms of teen girls/young women.
Of course licking turned to biting. And no matter how much you got after him for biting it turned to agressive biting. Then that turned into lunging at people. And then that turned into kicking. And eventually he went after a little girl and kicked me in the back of the head.

Horse was PSYCHO. He wasn't afraid of anything.
