After grooming my horse today, I bent over to grab her front hoof and pick it out...and I felt this gigantic pinch on my butt!! She had bitten my behind! Of course my initial reaction was shock, followed by a stern smack on the neck and a "No!" and she kinda looked at me like "what'd I do?!"
Now, you have to understand my mare to know my amazement...she is the LEAST mouthy horse I have ever known, has never tried to bite anyone, least of all me! If you stand in front of her with your chest against her head she just leans against you, and the most she'll do to your hand underneath her mouth is lick you! So you can imagine my surprise at the nicely pinched bruise that now resides on my derriere! Lol
Later on, a friend told me that she learned in a clinic that after a grooming session, many horses will try to groom you back and that's probably what she was doing. If so, I feel bad for scolding her, but on the other hand, I don't need any more of those kind of "grooming sessions" from her!
What's the funniest bite-related story you have?
