Re: [RC] Tying a Horse...food for thought - Rae Callaway
Well, you can always teach a horse to tie, but you can't really teach
them to be smart about it. My boy, General, who is 3 1/2, knows very well
how to stand tied - even for those scary things like baths or vets. His
first week at the trainers and he was tied to a trailer and set back and
started pulling. Apparently fear wasn't working, so he decided to rethink
his plan and go for the attack instead. General now has a nice hole in his
forehead where he broke his dish. Gotta say, I am SOOOOO glad I finally
got some fillies. Having 4 3 year old geldings on the place is really a
strain on my nerves. I swear they sit out there at night and try to see
who can be the next "Jackass"
