moaning while pooping?

My QH was moaning while pooping today and I've never heard him in the past 5 years of owning him. His back is out from walking funny for a day while having an absess, so im tring to get him in to the chiro this week.

Is moaning while pooping okay?

Dancer moans all the time. But just because that is normal for him doesn't mean its normal for every horse.

I hope your guy feels better soon!

My friend's gelding makes a show if it. He stops, dead stop. Lifts his tail as high as he can, sticks his nose out and GRUNTS.
I can't help but laugh, because my friend has to sit there until he's done.

Ive NEVER heard my gelding make this noise, he's not the one to make a big deal out of things.

Maybe he was holding it in for a bit and he felt relieved.

My colt moans when he poops, almost every time. He's one of those stop dead in his tracks guys too. Whatever he's got to do I guess

It can be a sign of ulcers

My old boy grunts too, and I think it's funny! I always check his poop (just by looking at it) and make sure its consistency isn't hard and dry.
