Thank you :)

My partner will turn his back to him and Montana will groom the back of his head? Never bites or uses teeth, just lips!

He's done it since he was a bubba! lol!

awwww, well my mare loves to lick, so i could get her to lick my head probably... ewww. I had one horse who'd always steal your curry comb from you and then chomp on it, followed by flinging it down and occasionally peeing on it. o_O some horses have the weirdest quirks, but giving you a head massage is a nice quirk!

When I brush Raven, I feel that connection between us grow. It's a quiet time for us to bond with eachother. I curry, then brush, and then I have a soft nuzzle muzzle massager that I use. I love this time with her.

Currying (sp?) your in not only forms a bond between you and your horse, but it also losen ups their muslces prior to being worked. Using something like Country Supplies | Oster Coarse Curry Comb | Ariat Apparel works great at working out the kinks in your horse.

I actually have the entire line of Oster brushes and curries. My big mare LOVES being groomed. I can't tie her up while I do it because she will literally start falling to sleep and stumbling around like she's drunk. It's kind of funny to watch, especially knowing that she is that relaxed afterwards. Her absolute FAVORITE spot to be scratched is right between her front legs. She'll stick her head nearly straight up and point her upper lip and wiggle it around.

I always called it the giraffe face. I love finding that spot on every horse I work with.

Mine loves it!!! Plus, I love thinking he's getting a good loosening through massage, before every ride! He loves it behind his right ear, the crest of his neck, hip, and under his stomach.

I'll get some pics later. :)
