Shetland pony tries to bite Prince Harry during visit to Scotland

You know what they say: Never work with children or animals.

Prince Harry found that out recently when a celebrity Shetland Pony tried to nip his hand.

But don’t worry, he pulled his royal mitt away before any damage could be done. (And, may have learned a quick lesson in holding a hand by a horse’s muzzle without offering treats.)

But Prince Harry did offer the little horse a delightfully polite tsk-tsk.

Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle visited Edinburgh Castle Feb. 13 in their first official joint visit to Scotland.

Including some adorable moments with Cruachan, the pony.
