    How do you go about teaching that? Just giving them something funky to smell, giving the command, and then treating?

    Yes haha she's the result of my boredness! Poor girl haha -_-

    Lillykitty- I used sugar cubes and rub it around her mouth and tap her on the nose at the same time and say smile. She's getting the hang of it lol.

    Thankyou Palomino Lover :P

    Also, a lot of horses respond well to a tickle on their nose and a reward if they smile. I have my yearling colt getting the hang of the same thing. It is really fun to teach, as well as something funny to show friends that come over.
