Wow. Are you always this much of a jerk? Who said anything about having special bonds and rubbish like that? If you can't be helpful, or at least thoughtful, get off my thread and go pester someone else.
Actually I think Kevin's hilarious! His response to your thread has had me laughing all morning. If you can't see his point then you need to re read your first post. Your horse IS
nipping you, it doesn't know it's not ok
because it IS
nipping you - duh. If licking and mouthing are leading to nipping then don't let it lick and mouth. Nipping WILL escalate to biting.
