    I've never heard/seen a horse do this before...

    My hubby and I have started riding at this place that allows you to either "rent" a horse for an hour or so or do a monthly lease. We have been there several times to figure out if we want to enter into a lease for these two horses. The horses are great, exactly what we are looking for and the farm has wonderful trails.

    Both times I have ridden Huck, he does the strangest thing.

    Whenever he....ummmm....I'm going to put this delicately.....poops... he lets out a very long, low deep moan.

    The first time he did it, it scared me because all of a sudden I heard this low rumble turn into a moan and realized it was coming from him. Then I realized what he was doing. I asked the farm manager if he was okay and she just laughed and said "That's just something he does" and laughed.

    Every time I ride him, he does this and it is completely hilarious when it happens. It happened twice today. I can't help laughing because I have never heard a horse do this before....

    I am just a beginner and am still learning about horses and was wondering if this is a common thing? It's not a moan of pain...it's more of a moan that sounds like "ahhhhhhh...that feels soooooo good". And then he puts down his tail and is ready to continue.

    But I don't want to continue to laugh if he is doing it because it is painful....

    Anyone ever heard a horse do this?

    We have two big Percheron/trakanner (sp.) boys at our barn, they're brothers, and every time they poo they let out the biggest grunts/moans that go on for quite a few seconds..it is so funny to me.

    My one will sometimes do this if he's been holding it in for a while. Especially after he exits the show ring.

    Hahaha! This used to happen when I rode a lesson horse, but Lottie never ever relieves herself when she's being worked, it's always after but without any noise
