If you wonder whether I am a "legit poster" or not, I can't provide too much evidence but this is the thead I opened around the time I got my mini I got a pony, now what?!
I started applying some rules and I see some positive results:
-He comes when I snap my fingers(it takes some snaps to get him come to me but he will get it eventually)
-I now keep his halter on for the whole time I am with him and he doesn't mind it that much. I always scratch him after I put the halter on.
-He began to understand that nipping my clothes or even opening his mouth to bit me is a no-no. I didn't smacked him yet but I say a loud NO and I push him away.
Today after several attempts of coming too close to me and nipping he gave up and went grazing, coming with his head mid-way down when I asked him to.
I am pretty happy with how he is doing and I believe he is pretty smart, so we'll get through.
