The gray mare has approached the bay stallion with a raised tail a degree of acceptance. The stallion has arched the neck slightly and is keeping his distance by extending his nose towards the mare. This same behavior can occur between two horses who have just been introduced to each other. Unique sounds are often made including squealing and trumpeting along with flehmen lip curls. This is typical introductory behavior.
