I just assumed that the "l" was a typo for "k"!!! The Marchie mare here did the licking thing.....she loves the saltiness on your skin (I guess from sweating...yuck!)
She used to do it alot, but I put a salt block in her stall and she doesn't do it that much anymore!!
She is so sweet I quickly learned that she wouldn't go farther and chomp.....Heck, she survived being starved almost to death....I let her do it, anything so she could have some happiness and comfort!!!
She is a character!! Sounds like this one here may be as well!!
