    Haha thanks everyone! It kinda back fired on me though lol Tonight, she was doing really well, and she can do it with either leg now...BUT once I ran out of treats she just kept pawing and pawing and PAWING and she pawed me right in the knee!!! I'm fine, didn't really hit me hard enough to hurt, but I thought "oh GEEZ I've created a monster!!" lol

    Eventually she'll realize that she doesn't get a treat unless she does it when I ASK first, but for now I'm going to have to watch my back!!! Hahaha

    How cute! It's amazing how quickly they can catch on if you do things correctly. :) Nice job. She's really cute.

    AHAHHHAHHAHAHA NO WAY LOL, it's not nearly as good as Sandie, plus it would be funny watching me popping him in the mouth for being grabby at treats! Lol

    You've done a great job!

    Wow, good job teaching her. Hopefully she doesn't make a bad habit or something lol. Tic tacs?? Very smart.

    What a coincidence. Just on the weekend, I was working on my horse's trick (kneeling) and my 11yrold said, "Why don't you teach her how to shake?" My response was that it was too dangerous for exactly the reason you stated above. My rule of thumb is that if the trick would be dangerous if done unexpectedly, then don't teach it. Why not teach her to say please instead? Knee up and nose to knee. Still very cute, but not so active. My other girl is now "dancing" by alternating the "please" leg. Not a finished product, but it's cute.

    She's actually better with it now, doesn't do it unless asked...it just took some time! I basically just ignored her or told her to put her foot down when she did it without me asking for it, and after not receiving a treat for unsolicited behavior, she figured it out pretty quickly and got bored with it! So now she only does it when asked, and she only gets rewarded when asked too It amazes me how fast horses catch on to things!!

    That "please" trick you mentioned sounds so cute! Do you have any video of your horse doing it??
