    I have one who is so gentle I don't have a problem hand feeding and he knows when we are done and does not push it nor does he get push and in my space. My other one loves to put his nostrils up to my nose and sits like that for pretty much as long as I let him. I don't see any problem with anything above, just to make sure if there is bad behaviour to catch it quick.

    I hand treat but they earn it everytime. I don't just give cookies for no reason.. and the second they get bossy the treat goes away.

    I don't let horses rub on me, but I do offer to scratch their ears, face, chests, etc. They like to lean into me as I rub them, which is fine as long as they aren't rude about it.

    I don't let horses hold into my clothes. I pay a lot for my own clothes and I rather not have to replace them for getting chomped on or torn. I've had a horse grab my hair before and that wasn't nice either.. so I don't tolerate that either.

    I'm pretty strict...

    My mustang is always dancing when the farrier tries to work on him, so I pacify him with letting him bite his lead rope. Instantly he chills and falls asleep. It's the only time he gets to do it, and it's the only thing that works to get those feet still (I can hold them and pick them out all I want, he just likes being a jerk to the farrier). Not exactly the most proper perfect way of doing things, but it works for me and it works for him.
