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.

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


Two mares grooming one another

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.
