THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.

IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”

Levi does this to dogs and pretty much anything he can get to sit still for a few seconds

Funny things, horses. Dirty, dangerous, greedy beasts, they get into your blood like a virus, and once you’ve got it, there’s no cure. We all moan about them; most of us try to leave the game at some time or another, but it’s hopeless. Within days you’re fretting for the sight and sound and smell of them.
