Submissive gestures......usually by foals??

I can't remember if there is a name for the submissive mouth thing that foals do...........hopefully you guy's know what I mean??? I just moved my mare to a new barn and she was doing it to every horse I introduced her to and she's three........not exactly a foal lol.....she's in season, I dunno if that had anything to do with it? It was just funny as I've never seen a horse her age still do that and I've never see HER do that any other time she's met a new horse??

Even older horses do that.. I have no idea what it's called other than "mouthing." Mares in heat do it to stallions quite often..

Yep, don't remember the name for that either (we just call it 'licking and chewing' :)) but older horses do it too. You often see it when you're teaching your horse something new and they're trying to say ok and figure out what you're asking them to do.
