We have a gelding who loves the feel of nylon. My winter barn coat is a real attraction. The other day I was "desensitizing" with an umbrella. Once he got his nose on the open umbrella and discovered it was nylon, I couldn't get him away from the thing. Rub nose and lick, rub, lick, rub, lick. Sheesh! If we ever meet a hiker on the trail with an umbrella Toby will probably maul the poor soul!
He also likes to scratch his nose on a beard.
