That being said I was done feeding the horses, doctoring one of them the other evening and was filling the water trough when she came up beside me at the fence( water trough was on the other side so I had the hose stuck over there to fill it) and was watching what I was doing.

I broke my own rule without even realizing it and reached over and started scratching her poll. She stretched her head out as to lead my hand back to her crest and that was when she really relaxed with her eyes rolling back and top lip quivering. I worked the scratch further down her crest to the wither til she began to rock back and forth head to hump. I would slow down with my scratching and she would lean into me until I got my pace back up. She started letting out this low rhythmic tone like a tiger's growl when I got to scratching along her top line back to her loin.

She is our youngest horse and is as much a toddler going through terrible twos as our grandson and into checking out EVERYTHING, but that ate me up.

Sorry to have invaded your thread with such a long tale, but it felt good from reading yours and recalling my moment with one of mine. Thanks for the reminder. This is Sugar working with one of the young men from my church.
