Yesterday my horse Banjo (who is very sweet and affectionate) decided he was a dog! I was filling the water trough and he came up and started licking my arm. At first I was suspicious it was a precursor to a nip, but he never put his lips on me. He just stood there and licked all up and down my arm for several minutes! It was a hot day and maybe he was just licking the sweat off, but I like to think it was an affection thing. I have never had a horse do this before, and just wondered if anyone else's horse licks?
