It doesn't take much to teach manners to a foal. A quick flick the moment he attempts to bite will teach him that it isn't allowed and also isn't a game. If he is only scolded in the moment of misbehaving (he knows what he did to get a negative reaction), he will not become head shy. Reinforce positive behavior and scold negative behavior, then he will try harder to get more positive rewards for good manners. Posted via Mobile Device
