What is your horse's absolute favorite thing? Outside of riding! Are there treats that instantly convert your pony into an addict or liniments that leave him yawning and chewing? What does your horse just love to have?
Okay, so the fat kid loves food. Hands down. And beer. But.....
I think his secret passion is for head scritches. I joke that it's because no one will groom with him (giant asshole syndrome - same reason people won't tell me my fly is down or my eyeliner has smeared across my forehead). For whatever reason, Archie loves to have his forehead rubbed. You don't even have to do anything, he'll just bob his head up and down if you hold your hand out.
And if you don't hold your hand out, he'll use your shoulder or back or whatever's available.
Now, I realize that this can be construed as bad manners. Some people don't want their horses rubbing on them and potentially pushing them over. I just don't give a shit. :)
