Withers ;)

Many horses LOVE to be scratched there.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Aero loves having under her chin, on her cheek and up around her ears scratched - as well as her rump.

Diamond and Rowdy LOVED to be scratched behind the ears. I guess it really depends on the horse, ans where they like it.

Be careful scratching some mare (in season) at the withers. Thats where the stallions will bit them during breeding. Some mares will get very mad Just an FYI not true on all mares.
All mine like their ears scratched inside and out. Around and under the tail and down the back legs. Its really embarrassing when a non-horse person sees me scratching their butts

Your horse will have the look on his face of sheer ecstacty. Lol.
Lip sticking up, stretching neck, starting to relax and drop head, etc.
