My horse does the "flamingo dance" when she eats too. But only when the food's really good.

Beat pulp = no flamingo. Sweet feed = Cawwwww!

My QH gelding does this, and he's about 14-2 (e.g. Not tall, and definitely not long-legged!) His half-sister and her daughter do it, too. I wondered if their dam did it when she was younger.... I have her now and she doesn't do it, but she has so much arthritis in her front end (at age 31) that she wouldn't/couldn't hold her feet up like that now.

He's a TB and has really long legs he's 16.3 but nice to know this is normal and my horse isn't the only one that does it and there's not something wrong with him.
