Well, my colt, Maverick, neighs whenever he sees my PawPaw, and sometimes me. I think it's his way of saying, "Hey, it's you! How are you? Do you have food? I love you!"
Also, before we got two more horses to keep him occupied, my horse, Pistol, would come up to the gate now and then during the day for a handout, which he was often given. Sometimes when he'd come up, he'd neigh low and soft at me, like, "Hey, Lily. Do you have food? It's nice to see you."
So I think they neigh when they're trying to say hello, perhaps, or maybe they're saying, "Hey buddy! I missed you!"
