Question My horse is acting weird

Okay, I've noticed something really weird with my mare. Everytime I'm cleaning out her paddock she will follow me all over the place and stand right next to me with her bum practically right against me. Its not like it really bothers me as such, because she's not trying to kick, I just find it weird. Should I be flattered? Lol...

she is sociable. My mare is same way. I clean out her run in shed and she always comes over and nudges me and sticks her head in the wheel barrow, She puts her head on my shoulder and breaths right into my ear. She always comes running as soon as she sees me. Yes she does get a treat now and then, so I am sure that has something to do with it. But she truly loves connecting with people. Its her personality. Is this something new with her?

I agree with scratch her butt. Of course if you do she'll never leave you alone. LOL

She's been doing it for a while now. I'm not bothered or anything, just wondered why she was doing it lol.

It's summer where you live, right? Bugs.. My horses often like their "nether regions" scratched/rubbed in summer due to tick bites. They rarely "bug" me in winter about it. Lol

I'm going to agree with Appyt. My horse will do that when he has a lot of bug bites in his "nether regions" as well. He usually likes to be close but normally wont put his rear end near me unless he needs scratching.
