Honestly my first reaction is "get your foot out of my bubble!!" My gelding constantly pushes my boundaries so I am very aware of when he's respecting my space and not. Him reaching his head around to "hug" is cute but I'm very aware that he does not perceive it as a "hug" so I remind him of my bubble. He probably sees it as "squash the tiny human time!" If he raised his front leg to me, he'd be met with a sharp slap on the shoulder.
But then again, he's young (6), doesn't know where his feet are all the time, and he's BIG - a very solid 16.3 (and a bit lol!) hands. I simply can't let him take an inch right now or he would take a mile.
Sorry - I disagree with you, OP...
