He has been an absolute joy to us and settled into his new home really well. But recently he has started nipping me when I groom him, especially around the back and flank area.
I talk to him softly when I groom these area's but im just wondering if he is playing with me or is this behaviour turning into something more serious?
Has anyone else had this problem with their horses?
Other women @ the stables say he is probably just playing and to give him a quick slap, but im not so sure. I don't want to start hiting him for no reason.
Has anyone any suggestions?
