I don't know why Nelson does that, he's always has. Oddly enough, he doesn't make a sound when we are out doing CC or out Fox Hunting.
I listened to the video with my surround sound headphones on, and he doesn't grunt over all the fences, but it is very apparent when he does.
It could be pain? He has arthritus in his hind right hock due to the injury he incurred in January.
I have a lesson today, I'll be sure to make it aware to my Coach and my buds who ride with me, to see if he does it. We have just started his loading dose of Adequan, he's coming to his 3rd injection on Monday. It seems to be working, because he's been full of piss and vinegar since his first injection.
