I know the Spanish word for whinny (horses' sound) would be 'relincho' but I can't seem to find the correct translation for nicker.
Definition of nicker according to Google:
- (a horse) give a soft breathy whinny. (verb)
- a soft whinnying sound. (noun)
In English these two things evoke very different feelings, a horse might nicker as a greeting or to show he is content, while a whinny is much more urgent, caused by fear or a call to other horses that are out of sight.
Is there a way to translate this difference into Spanish other than just saying 'relincho suave'? I'm based in Argentina but would be interested in a translation in any dialect.
