Whenever I put halter on my qh she starts to sneeze for couple mins like crazy. I used different halters and she still does it (doesn't do it when I put bridle on though). What could be a reason for that?
that is weird. And it doesn't matter what type of halter you put on her? Weeeeird
The only thing I could think of is that it's possibly bothering her nose, like a feather to our nose, causing her to sneeze....but other than that I don't know
Is she sneezing or snorting. Lol I know it sounds dumb, but I know alot of horses that snort when they are nervous with new people and new things. Maybe that is her way of snorting. Lol IDK. Just a thought.
My Qh, Abe does a snort/sneeze, sorta like he's blowing dust out of his nose but not a full blown SNORT! He tends to do it when he's not happy about something. Being tied when the lunch wagon comes by for instance.
I can't take a video - don't have equipment. I wish I could!
She's definitely not nervous. My paint who is always nervous about something never does it though. I know it sounds stupid but could it be just her being not very happy about possible work or other people?
Appyt, it's a real full snort. I'm getting all dirty from top to the bottom if I'm not fast enough to jump from the way. And it always seems to me she's --intentionally-- targeting towards me (or strangers). At least she's very good at doing it right into your face.
