Sounds wrong... what does the Japanese mean?

That a boy (and That a girl) are exclamations used to encourage pets (and horses and sometime children) when they do something difficult correctly.

You might say it, for example, when you're trying to get your horse to get into a horse trailer and he takes a couple of steps forward.

exclamation => + !

Since it is an interjection, and actually only used as such, I think the exclamation should be in that one...
