    Cute, but PLEASE be careful with trick training. Things like 'kissing' and 'shaking' are all good and well when they're small and cute. But when they start demanding food by biting and striking.... it lands you in the emergency department.

    Adorable(: how'd you teach him to give kisses?

    He would lick my hands after eating a treat. I moved my hand to my mouth. He didn't quite get it so I put a treat in my mouth and used the hand signal. Then lots and lots of praise!

    He only does tricks when I ask. If I don't ask he's reprimanded. He hasn't done shake unprompted yet...that's the dangerous one I'm worried are at an awfully convenient level to be hurt. But if he does he''ll get a "no" and a tap.

    I'm so teaching my horse to give kisses!! Haha

    Probably not to shake because I bet, with my mare >.>, it would lead to pawing. That's my LEAST favorite habit ever.

    My colt pawed at dinner I taught him a command to do it so I could tell him no when it was inappropriate. He no longer paws while eating.
