Usually when I get to the barn my horse is in her stall. She'll get all perky, kinda bob her head up and down, and eye me out until I'm right next to her. Then she'll sniff my hand and check for treats. =P She's not a vocal horse and only once whinnied when she saw me drive up. She'll nicker to me if I'm bringing her food though.

If I'm catching her in the pasture she'll either wait there for me, or start walking to me once I get close. And she'll just sniff me, like Vidaloco mentioned, nose to hand. It's a nice horsey greeting.

He stares at me until I get up to the gate and then he comes walking over and nickering. I think it's because he gets treats when he comes in lol

When I'm home from school and I'm in the barn a lot, I get low nickers as a greeting when I come in the barn. If I've been away for a few days and come back, I'm pretty likely to get loud grumbles or quiet whinnies.

If my guy's in the pasture and sees me outside, he whinnies and trots to the fence.

Hershey lifts his head to look at me and if I am lucky he will walk halfway to the gate then wait for me to come get him. Most of the time he just notes my presents and goes back to his business. Now if he has to stay inside for some reason he gives me a really loud whinny which I think means "Let me out of here!"

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

Angel has a very throaty nicker, Lady has a sort of nicker-whinny, and Cinnamon doesn't have much to say, but is always the first one to the fence.

Kainne is usually out sunbathing and admiring Buddy and he usually spots me walking up around the back of his paddock area and watches me and then walks over to the front to greet me and pokes his head out of the front all excitedly and nickers a little bit as I walk up..and paces around all nervous until I come in and give him a kiss.
He's very needy. He would be SO happy if I just never left his side..haha
