My mare usually toots a circle in the round pen and then sporadically after that! LOL

I wouldn't worry about it, I ride two ponies who fart all the time. One farts excessively when he's jumping its quite funny. The other one farts all the time, when we're out hacking or when she's just being groomed and tacked up. Me and my friend make guesses how many times she'll fart on a hack and then we see whose closest at the end!

I had a colt that would get excited in the pasture and start running, bucking, and kicking. Everytime his feet left the ground, he would let a big one rip. His mom does it too.

This thread made my night. Hahahaha.

I wouldn't be too worried though, unless it will bother you. My filly wasn't too gassy, but she was a pro at the silent-but-deadlies and always waited until I was at her behind, usually when I moved her tail to brush it. It was practically a fart-lever!
