My horse licked my armpit?!

Today I was standing in front of my horses stall talking to a fellow boarder. Out of the blue my boy sticks his head over the stall gaurd, and licks my armpit!

I was shocked [and slightly tickled] and I stepped away for a moment, giggled, rubbed his forehead, then proceeded to turn my back and talk to the woman I was previously talked to. Shockingly, he continued to stick his tongue in my armpit.

It was kind of funny, but very bizzare. Has anyone else had a similar occurance? It was quite weird. [And if you're worried about deoderant, it was after a strenuous hour long ride, and I sprayed him down [spraying myself as well, guilty!]

I guess you're his own personal salt lick .

He wanted the salt on your skin. Get him a nice salt lick and he'll quit seeking our other resources.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I second the 'salt lick' vote.

Some horses are just mouthy though. We have a 4 year old mare at the barn who will kiss you back, shes learned its a cute way to get attention.

I'm gonna have to get a salt lick, it was quite awkward! The only problem is I'm unsure as to where I could hang it in his stall, there's nothing to hang it from.

You can buy salt block hangers at the same place you buy the salt blocks.

I buy the 50 lb. blocks instead of the small ones, and just put them in a corner of the stall.

If you board be sure to ask the barn owner prior to putting any holes in your stall for a salt block holder. Some barn owners are very particular about such things.

I'll be sure to ask, I wish there was a way I didn't have to make any holes? Like, hang it over a rafter on the ceiling?

You can get one of These, it does not require a holder, you just hang it.

Or one of These that you put in a Jolly snack holder that can hang.
