Thanks guys! It's nice to get opinions on things!!
I can understand how teaching the wrong way/the wrong thing would cause a huge problem. If I teach Mozart something, it'd be something extremely simple, like a hug, to act ashamed, say yes or no, or to smile. None of those will most likely hurt someone if taught right. I can see how kissing could turn to nipping, how rearing and pawing can turn into huge problems.
But then... what about teaching more "complicated" tricks to miniature horses? My aunt has several minis, and I'm sure that she'd be able to show me where I could get a mini, or a mini donkey for a decent price...
My second cousin has a miniature horse that does absolutely nothing but graze in the field. She WAS going to train it and work with it... but lost time, and now he's just sitting out in a field/stall, gettin fat. So maybe I could work with him?
I dunno... for the most part I'm just wondering... because I saw some stuff on it on www.equusite.com
... and thought they looked interesting/cool.
