Just like big dogs vs. small dogs, they need to be trained - just because they're small does not mean that they shouldn't have impeccable manners.

I hate little dog owners that don't train their dogs because they can just pick them up out of any situation where training would come in handy.

I agree!
So annoying.


Plus. It'd be much more difficult to pick up a minnie than a chihuahua =P

No, but I know a lot of nippy minis, and it's because they don't get punished for it because it's so kyooooooot.






Gah. No, it's not.

Huh..
I think the *right* kind of punishment is *nessesary*
Like my gelding..when he has to something he doesn't want to he will back up, move sideways, anything but walk forward.
If I give him a pop on the muzzle, he immediatly starts acting like the docile horese he was supposed to be.
And he actually gets into a good mood afterwards.

I think popping horses in the muzzle makes them head-shy. I'd pop their side or rump.

Sometimes I think Minis are a lot smarter than your average horse.

WHATS REALITY?

We are trying to buy a farm and the woman who currently owns it has mini's there.

Here are a few pics:

This is her stallion

And this is the girl we might get from her when we buy her house




They are all very well behaved and super sweet. I have groomed them and picked their feet. Sweet personalities too. They whinny and come running over when they see you.
