Our pony mare has started doing this too. I take it as a sign of trust and relaxation from her as she had been very spooky and stand off-ish. Now she will rest her muzzle on the back of my neck when I clean her feet, and leans her head on my chest and sighs after I've untacked her. Like your girl, she's never moved her lips or tried to nip, so I allow it.

Lacey does the same thing if I sit in a chair near her - she'll take a nap, standing 'over' me and resting her head gently on me, until I decide to leave.

Best feeling ever! :)

Star and Laney do this often, and it's a serene time - Sugar doesn't yet, but she will come softly from behind and blow kisses through her nostrils to let me know she's there....these are some of those precious moments we horse owners can enjoy exclusively :)

I love it when horses do that. Once I was sitting in a chair and holding this girl's pony at a show. The pony was done but we still had two more divisions and it was crazy hot. She put her muzzle on my shoulder and I leaned my head on her nose and we snoozed away the rest of the show. As long as there are no lips or teeth its just her enjoying your company and relaxing with you, she's just being sweet.
