Cool Horse(s) favorite spot. :)

So where's your horse(s) favorite spot for you to scratch or rub? I'm just curious
My older gelding Midnight likes right under his forelock or behind his front legs (where the girth sits) scratched.
Flicka my mare like it when I rub her white markings on her face. She is also in love with me rubbing the inside of her ears. I have no clue why but she loves it with a passion. She'll lean into you and everything.
My first pony, Rosie (RIP 2009), loved being rubbed right under her eye. It'd put her to sleep everytime.

So where's your horses favorite spot??

My gelding LOVES when you scratch his tail bone. The skin there is very healthy, and he's got no worms or anything, he just loves when you scratch it. He stretches his head out and does that thing when they like point their lip, and pushes his bum into you.

He's a freak haha

Cowboy -- Right between his eyes! You give his face a good rubdown, his nose will be between your knees and he's asleep! He'll only do that for me though. Not playing favorites, is he?

Oatsy-- Neck, just behind his left ear and under his mane. Stretches out, leans into you, he loves it!

Diamond -- She's a prima-dona Arab, and she's better than you, no matter what (or so she thinks ...), but if you rub on her ears, she can put up with your presence for the moment ...

All of mine are around their heads! I just noticed that ... weird.

Most of mine are suckers for around their withers or their tail bones. My one stallion will stand for hours if you scratch the back of his ears. The other guy like his...Ahem.. you know...

Herbie loves to scratched everywhere. He'll point out spots that itch. Like he'll touch the spots that itch with his nose and then just look at you until you scratch him there. Then he'll stick his head in the air and stick his lip up haha.

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

Roxy loves it when I scratch between her teats. That lip really stretches out. And she likes to have her belly rubbed, she will fall asleep

Trusty loves the inside of his ears rubbed also. He is a big boy and when he falls asleep with his head up it will drop suddenly from him relaxing. Nearly broke my collar bone the first time. I learned to stand further to the side than I previously thought was safe..lol

Sugar loved to run your hand back and forth hard across her back bone. Legs spread out, head stretches out and down and the lip goes to quivering as she rocks back and forth. If you get to light in the scratch she will arch her back letting you know it isn't hard enough.

Jems loves her cheeks scratched and ,as stated earlier by others, her head will be between your knees as she falls asleep. She is 16h and that is a long ways for her to go.

Little Man enjoys his legs to be rubbed and will relax his head on your back as you do his front legs then will bring his back legs up to you to let you know he is ready for you to move to the back ones. If he is close to the wall he will lay his head on the rail and go to sleep while you rub the back ones.

Boo likes his ribs rubbed and will do the stretch at all four corners.

Doc likes it any where on the head.
