Well the pony I ride can be sour sometimes. So when I had him out for the lunging lesson we were going to do, no matter what I did, he was giving all the signals constantly, that he was going to kick me(or attempt it). The only thing he did quietly was let me pick out his hooves at the end of the quick grooming session. I naturally rewarded him with a mint.
Well, he pulled a Jackal and Hyde. He went from being bratty to an in-your-pocket-good-natured-I-love-you-so-much-and-trust-you-with-my-life-pony. It's the only time I've seen him pull a 360.
He stayed good for me all night and was willing...till I put him back in his stall and he tried to be herd boss and kick me out away from his hay because HE got to eat before ME haha.
A pony is a childhood dream, a horse is an adulthood treasure.
