Abs light when wheels spin ?

So it has been snowy here and this is my first winter with the truck. I have noticed this and I'm not sure if it's normal. With the truck in 2wd if you spin the back tires the abs light comes on. It will shut off when you restart the truck. The abs seems to be working fine. I haven't tried it in 4wd and it doesn't do it every time the wheels spin. More so if you are stuck and get on it some to get going. Thanks for any help you might have.

I know in my 6.0 there is a speed sensor in the rear, your probably spinning it to fast to read the sensor. Then ABS light comes on. When my ABS light is on ABS does not work, so be careful. I've locked em up and damn near slid through a light when i found that out.

I'll have to keep that in mind about abs not working when the light is on. I never tested that out. I know when the light is off everything seemed to be working.
