I noticed something new the other day..My two mares seemed to be scratching each others itches. At first I thought because it was a hot day, they were licking the salty sweat off one another but when I looked closer, they were actually using their teeth on each other, as if to be scratching one another.
Now, I've not had more than one horse, so I don't know if this is normal between two mares that are not related (as in mother and foal).
The part I find interesting is the fact that one of the mares has only been living with us for about 8 months (she is a rescue).
Is this a common behavior between two horses that have only been together for a short time?
I found this so cute that I had to take a video of it.
