Ok, I've looked and looked online for an answer and the only thing that comes up is adult content.
I'm quite embarrassed to post but I need to understand why he's doing this or what it means and I know someone here knows.
My rescued gelding is 5 years old, unbroke but we've been working on him little by little. He sorta still acts like a stud, he gets super attentive when he sees other horses or goats walk by, especially mares. He dances around his stall and whinnies.
Ok, there have been a few times a few months ago I've went out to pet him at his stall and he dropped and seemed to get aroused. I felt strange and usually stopped petting him and walked away. But he does not act this way when I'm grooming him only when he's unhaltered and being pet.
Today I went out to check on him, he was loose in our yard and he walked over to me, smelled my arm, started whinniying and nudging my arm and slowly turned around and faced his butt towards me like a mare in heat! It was not aggressive at all but I was still thinking what if he kicks me so I moved away and noticed he had fully dropped! He kept turning his head towards me and continued trying to put his butt towards me. I'm very confused about his behavior and hoping I can get some answers. It's really uncomfortable when my husband or kids walk out and find him in a "relaxed" state because of me.
FYI, there are other factors that may or may not be at play that are quite personal. I just got off my period a few days ago although I worked with him earlier in the week and he showed no sign of acting this way. But last night my husband and I got busy. Did my horse smell me and get aroused because of that?
I'm sooooo sorry this seems crazy but I can't find answers anywhere else.
