Do you mean roaring? That's a term used for a horse that has a flap of skin tear loose and causes a horse to make a loud roaring sound when it works hard at all. I beleive the flap tears loose somewhere in the throat area. I had a freind with a TB mare years ago that did it. Pretty easy to fix with minor surgery.

This has some information and websites. It seems a little serious? I'm not 100% sure
