Alison-LOL! So cute! I have a gray here, and when she makes that face, I call her a donkey! Heehaw!!!

Justawesome-what a sweetie you have! Love that video, his glowing eyes are so cool!

My mare loves the metal curry comb. The withers, the crest of the neck, the butt...just loves it! I also enjoy scratching her in a spot that she has just bent to scratch herself. Like, she will twist and contort her body to get to her hip (for example.) As soon as she is done nibbling that spot, I take the curry comb and can tell she is just like "ahhhh, thank you!"

My mini Boo, likes his neck done, and especially when I take his fly mask off, he likes the spots the fly mask rests on, right behind his ears.

Poor little Bruno, he is the opposite. He almost seems to have some sensory issue. His skin twitches and he shrinks away from me. He hates being groomed. Makes me sad for him...I think there was an issue in his past that messed him up.

I've been reading this link recently and realized that, despite trying with my leased mare for a year, I still hadn't been able to find her "itchy spot." I was grooming last night (providing a curry comb massage that she was sort of indifferent to) when I realized she had a bit of an inflamed bug bit on her chest that I needed to clean out and SWAT. As I was scrubbing with the sponge on her chest- bingo- llama face!! I think it's hysterical that it took a year of trying to find the spot, and then it happened totally by accident while cleaning up a cut. Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera with me, but now that I've unlocked the secret spot, hopefully I can get a picture soon :)

You never heard the saying you scratch my back I will scratch yours :) horses just want to be loved and rubbed too:)
ALSO most horses fav spots is going to be places they can not get to themselves like biggest one being right under the belly where the girth sits in between their legs

You know what I like to show a horse how much I love him or her? When I am grooming them and they have an itch somewhere and turn around and scratch themselves with their soon as they are done, I take the curry comb and go at that spot really THAT is when I really see a Llama face!!

I havent managed to find Negrita's itchy spot yet. Im spending the whole day with her friday, so im now determined to find it then. Charlie's itchy spot was either side of his whithers. Got a few llama faces from him :P excuse the sarcoids, his owner never was a fan of getting the vet out to treat them.. poor boy.

Curry comb massages! Lovely things, my horse loves it. It also gets him ready for rides and helps him relax (as you've seen). The wonderful llama face is because of when two horses groom each other. Have you ever seen those pictures of when two horses are grooming one another? It is just natural for those ponaynays to act like they would be grooming another and make a grooming face! Okay, I'm done now. Keep currying my friend ._.

^^ yeah, sometimes they'll try to groom you too... I hate it when young horses start to nibble you because the want to "groom" you, I never want to be mean to them but on the other hand nibbling is not ok. My mare always sticks her head straight up, and i've never seen her groom another horse, lol. She's too picky ;)
