My friend's two arabs nicker like that. It's rather funny. Aires doesn't. He'll just stare at you and will you to feed him. I swear he thinks he has the Force, sometimes!

As for begging...no horse has my friend's arab gelding beat. If he sees you with ANY kind of food, he will almost literally try to climb into your lap to get some. One of his favorites is Wheat Thins. He was mainly a competitive endurance horse in his younger days and got used to sharing all sorts of snacks on the trail with his rider.

how cute. I am super impressed at how polite she is. Nice work! Cooper will nicker and yawn constantly (weird habit) while im bringing their food. He stays out of my spacet o hang his bucket but not THAT polite. I may have to do some training now because I really liked seeing her wait like that.

Thank you everyone :) She is very polite when it comes to her food.If I tell her to wait to eat the grass she will knows when to hold still and when I say okay and I loosen my grasp on her lead she will begin eating...she's a good girl.

I wish Rodeo would do that!! LOL, lately we'll go for a walk, or whatever, and he actually has little fits when he doesnt get his way. I don't want him to think he can eat grass whenever, here and there when were not working its fine, but when were working he does not eat grass.....

Anyways, he'll put his head down, and when he feels the pressure, he picks his head back up and starts stomping/thrashing. Id say whats happening is when people at the barn take him out to the pasture, they let him get away with it, and then when I don't let him, he doesnt understand why he can't eat grass.....oh well, he'll learn sooner than later!!!

Gidget is so cute! I love her nicker, it's so soft and feminine!
Lacey will also start nickering non-stop if she thinks you have food but her nicker is like a "oh my gosh! Shut up already! You're SO loud" kind of nicker.

And I love your hair! It's so pretty and curly! Redheaded Oregonian hi-five!

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Hahaha,so Lacey has a manly nicker? I know Stormy does and the first time I heard it I was shocked that came out of her since she is so dainty! It's amusing. Gidget has a nice feminine and has never had a manly neigh in the(almost) 2 yrs that I've owned her!

Woohoo! High five for Oregonian redheads! I'm actually very proud to be a redhead...we're a rare breed :P Thank you! When I was young people didn't like it but they love it now =D I'm growing it out so I look like a curly version of Ariel the mermaid...hahaahaa..
