First of all I hope I spelled that correctly!

It seems like every time I looked around recently I would see horses grooming each other. I realize that isn’t terribly interesting, but I have to say it is cute to watch. It is fun to watch the horses form friendships and interact with each other. A few of the residents here had either never been turned out at all, or only been turned out by themselves prior to retirement, so they had never really had the opportunity to form strong social bonds. All of the horses here are turned out in small groups on several acres, even the horses that are stall boarded. It is so interesting to me to watch the horses learn to just relax and be, well, horses.

One thing I have noticed is that I will regularly see certain horses engaging in mutual grooming with other horses, and some horses I have never seen do this. For example, Sebastian and Trillion
Leo and Apollo Leo and Homer

Trillion and Faune, still BFF


Have you had enough for now? Are the horses all starting to look exactly alike?
