Re: Touch-me-nots

Hi Bonnie,
Touch-me-nots is a relative thing. If a horse that normally enjoys petting, rubbing, grooming and handling starts to get distant or nasty during these times then it calls for investigation. If a horse that is normally not a "touchy-feely" type but will stand quietly for grooming and general handling suddenly starts to lay back his ears, threaten to kick or bite during these times it means there's something wrong. It's a matter of a change in degree from what is normal for that particular animal. Most horses have certain ticklish spots but not the entire body.
