An­other rea­son for tail rub­bing

EQUUS - - Eq Letters -

My geld­ing rubs his tail to let me know that his sheath needs clean­ing (“In­ves­ti­gat­ing Tail Rub­bing,” Hands On, EQUUS 469). When he first be­gan to do this, I thought he was itchy at the base of his tail and around the tail­bone due to dry skin. I tried baby oil, but he con­tin­ued to rub. I then dis­cov­ered his sheath was dirty and both­er­ing him---once I cleaned it, he stopped. Elaine Co­hen Staten Is­land, New York
