*Similarly, he also grabs anything not bolted down lunge whip, other horses' lead ropes, his own lead rope, the straw of my iced coffee...
*Rubbing his belly in the dirt after he rolls (which looks like he's worshipping the Lord of Mud):

Ha! I forgot about that! When my girl was boarded, she used to always take my drink bottle, or the straw out of my cup. Now that we have property and she lives at home, I have a slightly better spot to put the water bottles in, but if I am not careful, they will grab them and run with them.

Those pictures are hilarious! GracielaGata, my horse used to love soda. He'd harass anyone with a pop can. If he could knock an unattended one over and lick up the contents, he was in paradise. Lol He also liked Twizzlers. I take the blame for that. Really though, who doesn't like Twizzlers? Lol

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Too funny! She wasn't ever really interested in the contents.. just eating the straw. I did teach her to drink out of my Nalgene bottle... but that stopped when she started picking the bottle up and trying to chomp on it when I wasn't looking! My DH's mustang gelding loves beer... he even taught him to drink without all the slobbery backwash, so they could truly share a cold one, :P

For many days this summer, I'd throw a jar of petroleum jelly in the basket of the quad and goop up the horses most vulnerable spots. Next thing I knew one would sidle over so I'd do the sheath area and he'd tremble while I slathered the jelly on. The other one, after doing his chest, turned to accommodate me to do his elbow/girth area, then moved ahead and parked out so I'd do the sheath area. he even turned around so I could do the other side. After several weeks of this, I'd stopped to pick something up and there he was, rummaging thro all the stuff in the basket. He found what he wanted and lifted the jar out. As I removed the lid he promptly aligned himself to get goo'd.

That is awesome. Is rather off putting for non-horsey people, but great to have a gelding who doesn't mind getting his boy bits cleaned!

Gracie, the sheath area and up between the hind legs is a favorite dining spot for various biting insects. That is one area a horse can't scratch so it's quite appreciated when I do whether or not I apply the Vaseline (petroleum jelly). If applied every 3rd day it offers quite a bit of protection.

You are so right! My mare also has the darndest time with flies in her crotchetal regions as well. She loves a good scratch there. I have a wonderful pic of me rubbing her belly button like mad, and her blissful, that's-the-spot face... it so does *not* look right! lol
We use baby butt cream for blocking areas like that, as well, we also use vaseline for removing pine sap. :) Makes my buttermilk buckskin half appy look like a real appy, with all those dark vaseline spots, lol!
