They're not nibbling: they're grooming each other. Grooming is one of the social bonds that horses use to become and stay friends. Horses are social animals.
Yes, horses nibble to show affection to other horses, but this can also be a sign of dislike to other horses. Watch to see if the nibbling escalates to hard biting with the ears laid back flat. This means dislike. If the nibbling stays nibbling that is ok.
horses usually nibble each other as refering to cleaning and playing. So yes they do get a long
no they could just be showing affection in a horsy kinda way LOL!
Yes, There getting along great when they do that, When they nibble they are grooming eachother. Kinda like saying "Hey, whats up? Where have you been? I'v missed you!!"
Horses will groom each other if they get along. This action looks alot like nibbling, but they don't do it to be mean. However, a horse who goes to nibble at the behind of another passing horse probably does not get along with that horse too well.
Yes, nibbling between horses indicates they like each other, however, sometimes a nibble isn't a nibble, it is a test of dominance. So if it goes to biting, keep an eye on them, and separate if needed.
It depends on where and how they are nibbling. If it is more of a nipping on the hind region, it is a gentle reminder of dominance. If they are standing nibbling, especially in the mane area, it is a calming and bonding act. If your horse is ever stressed try "nibbling" with your fingers right at the base of the mane about mid neck. It should calm them down if they are bonded to you.
horses nibble each other as a form of bonding it is called grooming.if they have there ears back whilst doing it then they may be being aggressive but if they are just standing in the field biting each others shoulders or manes then this is grooming and yes it does mean they get on. It's just like when people need their back scratched or massaged.
Yes Yes. Horses will nibble on one another if they are friends. Their favorite place to nibble is along the top of the neck and on the face or chest. They can be very playful and affectionate with one another and often give little "love nips", without hurting one another.

Horses groom each other as a sign of friendship, it is something their ansesters have always done.
Well it depends.If they're adult horses,then they are probably fighting to figure out who will be the leader,if so just let them figure it out,they'll learn to get along in time.If they are fillies(or colts) then they are just playing so don't worry about it.So to answer your question, yes they will get along eventually. The above answer is both right and wrong... Adult horses do nible on each other, yes this is a sign of acceptance or friendship. Not all horse will always get along either, Fillies and colts do nible each other and often adult horses too. They nible the adults to test boundaries.... In other words: To see what they can and can't get away with! This is called mutual grooming when horses are in the wild they don't have anyone else to groom them o they groom each other !!! but this could be a sign of aggression in horses who you know don't get on well usually
