Dancer moans all the time. But just because that is normal for him doesn't mean its normal for every horse.

I hope your guy feels better soon!

My friend's gelding makes a show if it. He stops, dead stop. Lifts his tail as high as he can, sticks his nose out and GRUNTS.
I can't help but laugh, because my friend has to sit there until he's done.

ive NEVER heard my gelding make this noise, hes not the one to make a big deal out of things.

Maybe he was holding it in for a bit and he felt relieved.

My colt moans when he poops, almost every time. He's one of those stop dead in his tracks guys too. Whatever he's got to do I guess

My old boy grunts too, and I think it's funny! I always check his poop (just by looking at it) and make sure its consistency isn't hard and dry.
