lol, perhaps she just likes to GRUNT :biggrin:

I had an Arab that would smack his lips continually whilst being ridden, it
was like he was saying 'Yep, Yep, Yep' and he would do it all the time
you were out, be it 30 minutes or 4 hours !!

Change of bit etc., even bitless, made no difference, just something he did:giggle:

Ed sometimes has a grunt for 5/10 mins on a hack. It's certainly not all of the time, but definite grunting times... he sounds rather piggish too :biggrin:
