She neighs at the top of her lungs at everybody, horses and people alike! She has one or two days where it's really bad and then a few days of not-so-bad but still not her normal self.
When she gets like that all I can say is it's a good thing she's cute...
Yep that sounds like Sandie!! She neighed so loud one night at another horse RIGHT next to my ear, I thought I would go deaf! She did it while I was riding her another night when she heard another horse halfway across the stable making noise!
She's normally pretty calm but these past few days she has been more jumpy and hasn't been listening to leg yields, is throwing her head around more, etc. But there are other factors that could be affecting it, which is what's making it difficult for me...for example, I know she needs her teeth floated pretty badly and the horses have all been kept in for the last 3 weeks because of the bad weather out here, so she could just be going stir crazy from that or be uncomfortable from the teeth or be in season or ALL OF THE ABOVE! I guess just like you said...at least she's cute!
