Not your conventional “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” kind of friendship. But hey, whatever works.
What are you to do when you’re a horse with an itchy belly and your pasturemate is a cow? This horse came up with a creative solution and from the looks of it, his bovine companion couldn’t care less.
Not to be outdone with creative scratching solutions, these horses have also made the most of their surroundings, such as this horse pastured with a small tree…
…or this horse who’s found a conveniently placed gate.
Disclaimer: excessive itchybutt can actually be a symptom of more serious conditions, including pinworms. If you notice your horse constantly itching his tail or his back end, you may wish to consult a vet. However, just like people, sometimes horses just have an itch.
