Does anyone have an idea why horses sniff and dig the ground before they roll?
I would like to know!
Thnx! :)

I think they are looking for the muckiest bit they can find!! LOL
Ha! Ha! :)
(I think I agree!)
maybe it's like a dog when they roll...has to smell good...?
The worse it smells.. the better it is :)
You'll note that in a herd, most horses will roll in the same spot, and, I believe, it has something to do with all smelling the same. They can then recognise other herd members by smell. But, I could be all wet.
Good answer, Mags!
I suggest maybe they test the fertility of the ground. If it is 2 dry or wet, they move!
Could be, Justice! :)
