Colts and fillies love to play, and often chase each other around the pasture. They also love to scratch each other and stand head to tail to chase flies away. This filly apparently has no other baby horse to play with or to scratch those itchy spots. That’s okay, though, because she has a human who seems to be meeting the need.
The filly backs up to the man in her field, pushing her hindquarters firmly against him and then enjoying the scratching as a reward. Problem is, she doesn’t want it to end!
At first, the young horse chases the man and insists on his attention. Turning around, he laughingly scratches her rump, and then tries to walk away. But the filly isn’t finished!
Backing up into him, she pushes her tail firmly into his side and waits for the scratching to continue, and it does. And then he tries to walk away again, but the little horse still isn’t satisfied.
Again she backs into him, begging for more. And once again, he obliges. She is obviously enjoying the attention and loves that he’s scratching her where it itches. And then he tries to leave again. Guess what happens this time?
The filly, insistent on being scratched, tries to regain his attention, but he’s had enough and continues walking away. That’s when the horse decides to exert her influence a little more fully, and swings around, lifting her hoof into a perfectly aimed kick in the poor man’s direction. Connecting with his back pocket, the filly lays her ears back in disgust, her point made.
Watch this hilarious video, and decide for yourself. Is the man destined to stand and deliver the rest of the day? What would you do?
