    I did the same thing! Biting them back, HARD, works.

    Giving a treat for a biter? Oh HAIL no! I'm not rewarding that nasty behaviour, and that's exactly what it is, a reward. Don't know why anyone would think that's a good idea.

    Wow, is that confusing or what?

    A horse bites and it gets at treat. A horse walks casually behind the human but closer than 6' away and it gets his face wonked by the latch on the lead.

    Poor horse.

    I don't think 'horsenality' is an idea anyone came up with, it is something that has always existed and only now are people realising. Now there's a name for it.

    Yea... who would of thought of rewarding a horse for bad behavior.

    Well here are my quiz results:
    Ty- The Goddess is loved by most of the other horses and most people. They are expressive and sensitive and emotional. You will know how they feel. They try very hard to please and will worry and be anxious if you are not happy with them. In the negative they can have scattered energy that is hard to get focused. This personality can be loved on as much as you want. Some of it fits him

    Roxy- The Lone Wolf Low key, low energy, low expectations, are what you need to work successfully with this type of horse. The Lone Wolf is not bursting out of his stall to try to fit into your program and to please you. He is easily content and can do a good job for you as long as it is not demanding physically or emotionally. He likes his world predictable and safe. He would rather be a little bored than stressed. If repeatedly put into pressure situations he can react seemingly unpredictably. If you can find a quiet solid job for him, he will perform it repeatedly and safely. Most of it fits... except the unpredictable part.

    I'm not on board with the whole "horse tries to bite, give him a treat" idea.

    Unless, of course, my horse bit LP.

    Then he'd get a carrot. And perhaps and apple. . .and a sugar cube. . .and a bottle of his favorite beer. . .and lots of luvin's and scratchin's. . .

    Now that's what I call Natural Horsemanship!

    (I can just picture the shocked expression on his face!)
