Just wondering if any breeders have the same problem as I do with their horse obsession in smelling the other horses manure. I understand dogs do it and most animals do it. But I mean . I have a filly who if you don't hurry up and bring the wheelbarrow into her paddock for her to smell she will continue to hit the gate till she gets the chance to smell what the others have deposited. I have her mother who is not that interested, has a quick 10 second wiff then moves on . The filly younger yearling has the same obsession follows you everywhere and stays with you constantly sniffing.

Just wondering if anyone has the same . I know its a strange topic. But I always try and watch and interpret what the are doing.

Manure tells many stories for all animals & horses are no different, it's perfectly natural with some showing more interest than others Smile
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

Some foals will eat their mares manure possibly to increase healthy gut bacteria.
