How do your horses say hi?

How do your horses say hello when you visit?

Oakey isn't the most vocal horse around so he mostly says hi just by blowing, but every once in a while he'll let out a nicker.

Mine aren't real vocal. When I let them out in the mornings I put my hand out and each one goes by and gives it a sniff. I think of it like when horses meet each other, they go nose to nose. Since I'm not a horse, we go nose to hand.

Dobe does. He will give this little deep toned nicker and watch me. Though I think he is really telling me "bring me food.....". LOL.

Usually, Rocky will blow air through his nose and nicker quietly at me. It's barely audible. Sometimes I only see his nostrils move. But it means he's happy to see me and it makes my day to see that =)

It depends on their mood, but Zonie usually gives a little snort and Dixie just rolls her eyes and walks away unless we have food

Both T and Walka call out to me. T will stand by the gate and put her nose out for me to touch. Walka will stand and wait for me to pet him. Mine are very vocal. Better than roosters if I sleep 20 minutes too long!

Lisa gives me a lovely deep nicker/grumble every day at least once. Jade comes to be hugged, but as yet has not said a word to me.

Lacey isn't super vocal, unless I haven't been out in a while, then she'll whinny for me. Usually what she does is as soon as she sees me, she'll stop eating (the girl is always eating, I swear), put her head up, and just watch me come over to the gate. Then, depending on how bored she is, she either will walk over to me or she'll stand watching me until I get to her, then she likes to put her head on my shoulder and just rest it there. Then, after doing that for thirty seconds or so, she backs up and waits for me to scratch her face and put her halter on.

If someone else has gotten her out of the field and she's not sure what's going on (like if we're about to trailer out somewhere and I'm late) she'll nicker and nicker and nicker as soon as she sees me. And she'll try to be as close to me as possible, in as respectful of a fashion as she can muster in her excited state. If I leave her side, she'll start nickering again and continue until I get back next to her. It's my favorite when she does that, I feel so needed! Haha

Ricky likes to nod his head like he's saying yes everytime he sees me. I didn't teach him that, so I have no idea why he does it. I think its him secretly saying 'Yerrrr carrot ladys back!'

Haha that's what my pony Misty does, nods her head like crazy. They all come running to the fence when I come out. Finn whinneys his head off at the top of his lungs about three times in a row, as soon as he hears the door or garage open, and then just waits for me to come fuss over him. Claymore usually lets out a tiny whuffle, once I am about 10 feet away, and then looks like it embarrassed him. Freyja doesn't make a sound, she's generally a very non vocal horse, she just watches me closely, arches her neck at me, and rummages through my pockets once I'm close enough.
