Low, Soft Winny ??

Hello! I have had horses my whole life and have never had this happen before. I purchased a Rocky Mountain gelding just over a year ago. He is super and we have a great bond. However, when I was done grooming him yesterday, I was just standing beside him. I had one arm under his neck and was softly petting his face (he was extremely/still is a bit head shy when I got him). When I would rub down on his nose he would let off a very low, soft Winny. He has never done this before. His ears were forward and he didn’t seem to be uncomfortable. When he did it, his nostrils flared a bit. I'm just wondering if anyone has ever seen this before? Was it an “I'm happy with you” type of Winny? Or a “I'm gonna freak out soon?” Winny?. He is very much my horse, my husband does ride him if I'm away, but he responds better to me. Any information would be great. Thank you.

Well if it was a bad noise he wouldn't have stood there nicely :)

Some horses get chatty. My horse has days where all he wants to do is babble away at me.
