    Default Clicker Training Your Horse to Kill Zombies

    Based on this video, it appears you will be killed long before the zombies arrive.

    I'd hate to see him with a sword or chainsaw!!!
    A friend told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.

    Rick needed to be riding THIS horse when he rode into Atlanta in Season 1 of "The Walking Dead"! Think how much the story line would have changed!

    I can't let the mare see this...she might get too many ideas, one of which would be to clicker train ME to giver her cookies. Another being to just whap me upside the head with anything she can swing.
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    I like the emphasis on controlled swinging, oh, and the "no chainsaws" part.

    This.^ I can imagine my gelding coming up behind me and whacking me unconscious with a stick, then wondering why I'm just laying there instead of giving him a cookie!

    Got one who will pick up anything like that and frail the fire out of whoever is close, people or other horses.
    Sticks, pieces of old hose, whatever. He will also grab a running hose and soak you. If you go toward him and try to go around he'll turn to keep soaking you.
    Lovely boy but I think he has too much time on his hands/hooves.

    Remind me next summer. I'm not willing to take a soaking as cold as it is right now.
