Horses lick your palm of my hand when they want water. There is salt on your palm and it makes the horse thirsty therefore, they drink. Go in your horses stall after excercise and put your hand under their muzzle and they will probably lick it.

All of our horses are outside 24/7. They have a salt lick, which they do use. Ghost still likes to like everything and anything.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

my horse is an Irish Sport Horse, and he loves to lick things, especially the inside of his rug [if I leave it lying somewhere] and my elbows and neck when I'm sweaty. I bought him a minty mineral lick, but he didn't seem to keen on it!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I have a POA that loves to lick, and they are alot like Appaloosas. He will eat practically anything, and even tries to get a hold of my clothing. Dx

Prior to this picture being taken he dragged me around not realizing that the jacket was connected to me.

I have a paint filly that loves to lick everything. She loves to lick my hands when she is unsure of something. It helps to calm her down. She is the only one I have that licks everything. My other horses don't do that.

Striving to always excel in everything I do. Whether I fail or not I always try to do better than last time.
