horses tied to trailers at night

If you're worried about Apache getting a foot caught, break him to
hobbles so he learns not to panic.  I had a mare that would destroy
anything including herself if she got wound up.  I swore I'd never deal
with that again!  Fortunately, Akela doesn't care; he figures it's my
job to fix it if he gets tangled up and will wait for me to do so.  I
tie him long enough he can lay down and move around.  I'd never use a
portable corral.  I, too, have seen too many loose horses and I know
that if Akela wanted out he'd leave.  He has a high pain tolerance and
knows it only zaps for a minute!  (he's proven this at home).
