I have noticed Stinker has a few (ok well more than a few) quirks. First up, he stacks his shavings under his feet. Has anyone else seen this? It freaks me out and makes me think he is sore, but I haven't been able to find any soreness and the farrier isn't concerned.
The next one I just think is funny. Stinker has been quite grumpy about grooming for awhile, so I got fancy brushes in hopes that he would enjoy grooming more. He did not, still pinned ears and general grumpy behavior. The one day when he was being especially bad I decided I was going the same spot until he stopped turning his head to nip at me (also using verbal corrections). I discovered if I brush him long enough, he will start licking and chewing and relaxes. I have also noticed that our rides go better when I take the time and do this all along his back, shoulders, and girth area.
Stinker is such a little weirdo and this is just the tip of the iceberg with his quirks. But I enjoy figuring our all the little quirky things that are his norm. What are some quirks your horse has?
