I think I've shared videos before of Blue rolling after being ridden, but I never get tired of watching him do this. I think it feels good to him to have the sweaty saddle off, and rolling is a way to scratch his back. Most horses I've seen do this after the saddle is removed and they're turned loose. Old-timers used to say that for every roll the horse takes in succession, he's worth $100. Which means most horses aren't worth a lot, Blue included.
Blue is currently on a diet. He's fatter than he's ever been. So I'm keeping him in the stall and turning him out to pasture a couple times a day for two to three hours. I'm going to try very hard to see that he gets at least a little bit of daily exercise, too. He's been somewhat neglected during our move.
