As soon as he heard

My voice and saw me walking

At fence and nickers.

Art Prescription:  It’s so sweet and rewarding when my horse Finn meets me at the gate nickering. He is saying hello and glad to see me!

A nicker is commonly described as a companionable greeting or solicitous type of vocalization. This makes intuitive sense both because of its nature as a quiet sound, but also in the close-contact social situations in which it is typically heard: Between two friendly herdmates, between a mare and her foal, and between a stallion and a mare.

I’m so honored!
