    We always put Arizona's hay in his hay bucket, and the first thing he does is bury his head up to his ears in hay and then throws his head back so hay flies everywhere. Then he'll eat the hay out of the bucket and finish up whatever hay landed on the ground.

    When I give Bacchus his bath and water trickles down his tail (or under his tail), he will literallt SIT on the ground.... butt down, front legs still standing. He hates when water drips there!

    He doesn't mind being sprayed except for one place: the tip of his tail. Not the hair part, the flesh and bone part. You'd think I just goosed him, the way he humps his back and stands on his toes.
    Brickens does teh exact same thing! It's so funny!

    Also, after I give him a treat he'll lick his lips for another 15 minutes just to make sure he got every last bit of it. Brickens is also very mouthy and love to lick all the way down my shirt when I'm not paying attention. He also love to nuzzle me when I picking his hooves. Oh ya and he LOVES to stick his tongue out ALL the time. Silly horse.

    If I'm grooming Hoover in stall, he will systematically drop his tools outside the stall door.

    He also loves to drink from the hose when he gets a bath, and does an attempt at a split when I try to wash between his back legs.

    WHenever water from the hose touches one of my mare's hind legs, mainly her right. She lifts it up and holds it there for ages while you wash it... no idea why. Its not like she's sore or anything because she's done it forever. Lol its cute

    My wonderful mare, Apolonia, has too many grooming and water antics to list them all :) One water habit that the other horses are not very appreciative of...she likes to grab the hose out of the water tank (while the water is flowing) and chase after her pasture mates with it!

    While hosing her down, she insists on putting her nose in the water as much of the time as possible and will wiggle her top lip back and forth amazingly fast in the waterstream. She also loves to try putting her head in between me and her neck when I'm grooming her. Very strange habit, but she thoroughly loves being groomed and seems to be trying to show me her appreciation!
