    Noisy horses...anyone else?

    My horse ALWAYS has something to say, ever since the day I brought him home and unloaded him from the trailer. If he sees me coming to pasture he will start nickering, I walk in and then back out of my tack room a couple steps away and he will nicker at me, I put him in the arena and walk away for a minute or two to grab something and he will call out to me, he hears a horse coming into the barn and he calls to it, ect. All of the horses I have ridden/been around have all been very quiet and I rarely, if ever, heard a peep from them. He isn't acting nervous or anxious...he will just call out then go back to what he was doing and is completely calm. I guess he's just a talker lol.

    Anyone else have a noisy horse?

    Reno's pretty quiet for the most part unless he sees me coming. He'll nicker a little bit, but that's it. Only other time he makes any sort of vocal noise is when he's stressed out or anxious.

    Oh my goodness, Diamond is such a chatter-box!! She's always nickering, whinnying, neighing, just about anything! She'll neigh at me in the morning, while I'm giving hay, while I'm watering, while I'm brushing her or the boys, any given time, she's got SOMETHING to say!! I think it's simply adorable, I'm not complaining :)

    Lol. I have always ended up with talkative dogs, cats, and horses. Both my horses would nicker constantly. Both my cats are story tellers. My dog growing up was such a whiner and he chattered like a freaking squirrel all the time, haha.

    My horse is the silent, aloof type but he does have a little grunt that he makes to let me know he is displeased with what I am doing - usually putting his sun mask on or cleaning out his nose. The only time he ever calls out is when I take his pony for walks without him. My mini on the other hand is very vocal, my favourite is the noise she makes while shaking after having a roll. It gets me every time.

    Occasionally Jayne'll get distracted on the trail and 'remember' we're out by ourselves and call to see if there are other horses around, but I put him back to work when he does that, so it's not too often. He's a pretty quiet guy, it took about a year, but now he nickers when I get there and dinner is coming. He snorts and blows a bit though when he's worked up or anxious.

    Bratty Mare is always talking up a storm. When she hears me pull into the driveway she starts nickering at me. Walking up to her stall or paddock she nickers a greeting. She is just a chatty brat. Its funny because everyone says they don't hear a peep from her when i'm not around but she will chat up a storm with me when i'm there. She even grunts at me when I scold her lol.

    Neither of mine are very talkative. My friend's little filly was very attached to my Fjord when we first got them and would call and call and call when I took her away or would just squeal for no reason. Oh my gosh. Little filly whinnies get real obnoxious real fast.

    My mare is also kept outside with this gelding that is just in love with her. She tolerates him. When I take her away, he doesn't shut up. His whinny is about as high pitched as that little filly. To the point where another boarder asked if we got sheep again one day. Nope. That's just him.

    I don't even know if I could contain myself if Kaja (Fjord) nickered all the time. For being all of 12.3, she has the deepest, most old man-sounding nicker and it is hilarious.
