Panama requests some hay

This video of Panama's nicker was originally posted on my writer's blog, but since I've decided to give him his own blog space I'm reposting it here.

As I explained on my other blog, Panama makes very different sounds according to what he wants. His nicker when he is asking to be fed is very deep, which is probably because we didn't have him gelded until he was a little over 2 years old.

You can hear the nicker if you turn the volume up on your speakers. It's at about 15 seconds on the counter.

Also in the video, when I open the door to his stall, I say "Back" several times, very sternly. This is because I found out from the stable owners that he had developed a habit of practically running people over when they entered his stall with food. I'm determined not to have a pushy horse, so I've been practicing with small amounts of hay or grain every time I'm there, making him back up and give me space when I bring it to him.
