My horse also enjoys breathing softly into my nose its lbs not miles.
I have found it relaxes her when I do it, yet if I allow her to sniff the nose of another horse at pony club or on a trail she will often flatten her ears and squeal. So I don't allow her to sniff horses with another horse while under saddle or in hand.
When she behaves by lashing out at the horse whose nose she is sniffing, the other horse steps back or turns their head away. So I hypothetical that perhaps when she is touching noses in an aggressive manner, she is asserting dominance?
But then what does it mean when me and her touch noses, and she remains quiet and soft?
I'm just theorizing here. I've been puzzling over this for days, ha!
