Salt will very quietly take the panic snap in his mouth and work it around until it opens. I swear he has thumbs in his mouth--there is no other explanation. Once he gets himself loose, he just stands there and looks smug until I notice.

    This makes me smile

    That's cute! (though probably not when it actually happens...)

    My horses seem to clearly understand a quick release knot and quite quickly release themselves (but then stand in place).
    They're not miniatures, they're concentrates.
