    I do like a horse that will look me in the eye, maybe its just a personal thing . I pay more attention to butts and ears

    Hahaha. Well yes, it tends to be a good idea to pay attention to butts and ears xD

    When a horse looks another horse in the eye, it means "back off". They read it the same with people. When I want my horse to move away from me, I look him in the eye, and when I want him to come to me, I look to his shoulder. They look me in the eye when they're nervous or looking for direction.

    It doesn't matter as much when you're grooming or cuddling or just hanging out, though. At least my horses don't really care. Which makes sense, because you're not asking them to do anything in those situations. ;)
