What do you call that lippy thing stallions do?

I'm having a brain fart, and google is being unhelpful...

What do you call it when a stallion (or any horse really) flips up his upper lip?.... I know there's an actual term for it...

My mare does that when I give her a treat. From what I remember it's a way that they can retain a scent longer. But I could be wrong.
