need advice for bum rubbing mare
my new mare has settle well. (three weeks into new yard with new owner). She used to live out all the time so when I introduced her to new stable I wasnt too fussed about her rubbing her bum against the stable door, having what looked like a good old itch.I brought her in agian
The other day to keep the routine of coming in for half an hour to feed. And she was really pushing with force on the top of the door to the point that I couldnt decide if it was an itch or a sign of displeasure at being in. Her back legs were right underneath her
Today she was tied outside and planted her bum on the fence which cracked under the pressure.this made me then think it wasnt a 'get me out of here' move. ??
I've given her behind and tail a nice wash today with no soap suds so make sure its not crusty.......
Can't decide if its an itch or a behaviour ? Does this ring any bells with anyone?
