Those satisfying scritchy scratches

Don't you just love it when your horse enjoys being scratched? and you find the "sweet spot" and he/she is just in ecstasy, enjoying the scritchy scratching.
Z will do just like this video, and he loves to be scratched there, ( and on the back side of his sheath) where the midges bite and he cannot get relief.

That was so silly! I wish my mare did that. The only thing she does is turn her head super sideways and make funny faces

I love all the faces and carryings-on they go through. I am not thrilled, however, when they think they need to return the favor and scratch me.
That's a big thank-you-for-thinking-of-me but not today! : )

omg lol, my mare does this almost daily. She's constantly itchy (allergies), and does this pose more often than not!

Oh my gosh, that is exactly what Zane does! I have never seen another horse lift his leg like Zane. Zane LOVES his belly, sheath, between his butt cheeks, around his tail, all of it scratched! I'm glad he's not the only one, I was beginning to think he was a freak, ha ha!

Aww, that's so cute. My horse makes weird faces when I scratch him on his back by his withers. :P

LOL, that's what Nester does whenever I clean his sheath. He leaned over so far last time that he nearly fell on me.

I'm glad to know I am not the only one who obliges the male horse with a nice scratch on his sheath. When I am giving Z a nice vigorous scratching there, from a distance, it could be misconstrued!

My mare's 4yr. gelding loves to be scratched there too LOL he will also lift his leg but not quite as high as that one!

My horses are the joy in my life.....

None of "my" horses goes to that extreme, but they do love being scratched. When I hit Cheyenne, Tequila and Bonnie's itchy spots they make their lips quiver something fierce lol. King loves his ears scratched, he'll lay his ears back as far as he can for scratches.

Being horseless is the pits!!
