What does the verb "yfs" mean?

What does the verb "yfs" mean?
Used in the expression
"Hunden skäller, hästen yfs"
(The rest means: "The dog barks, the horse *** ")

Citation from "Spring song" ("Vårvisa", written 1887 by Swedish poet Magnus Elmblad (1848-1888, poet, journalist, Sweden, USA.).

The verb is also used a couple of times by Carl Michael Bellman (eg. in "Fjäriln vingad syns på Haga", Fredmans sång 64): "Fålen yfs och hjulet dammar"
(meaning "The colt *** and the wheel dusts")
