The whole barn was licking....????

Ok so I was brining in the horses and the second to the last "frank" was licking when I got to him. He was still licking when he came in. Then the horse next to him "ebony" who is so insacure and attatches her self to everyone started licking. Then that whole side of the barn was licking this was for 15 mins or more. Just licking and licking non stop, well mine stopped to bite at the wall cause the other horses head was out of the door.

But has anyone els seen this in their barn? What does it mean? Is it cause they all caught a scent? Or just a behavior thing? Or was it all simon says or should I say Frank says. They were still going at it when I left.

That's so funny, I prob would have wet myself laughing...Like a peanut butter bandit hit the barn!

Ok.. I'm guessing it came from a scent..not sure tho

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

LOL! Silly horses.
Yeah, it may have been from a scent...or they were just copying each other!

Ride more, worry less.
