Kate Bremer taught me so much about my young female donkey who was nipping, "goosing", and being very rough and naughty. She is a year now and soooo much better. The advice I had prior was....slap her nose, yell NO, smack her shoulder, push her way, turn and walk away, etc etc. we tried it all! She responded to a HARD thump on her nose with more roughness. Loud NO's made her laugh. Someone even suggested a whistle...HA! She loved it! I too believe she wanted to play with me, but it was too rough. My point is that Kate taught me to ask Tuli to move away, instead of physically demanding it. It worked for us and I felt so much happier with our teaching time together.
