He of the Spotty Butt is always trying to smooch me! It is especially irritating when I am ponying him. He tries to smooch my rear, tries to smooch my neck, and has the effrontery to trot up too far and try to smooch my face. I give him the royal "pinny ears" and growl and him-he quickly retreats. The other day he did not try to sneak any smooches so as a reward I turned my head and smooched his nose, he was quite surprised.
