Owner looks on!
Well we are home. Kathy had a show in Alb. NM showing her art and the Cowboy Man Bar. They were both hits and Kathy is excited about her up coming show… Go Sweetie!
I have gotten a few very nice post on loading horses in the trailer. And I want to thank all of you that posted. If you would like to read their post just check at the bottom of each blog and you can see if anyone posted to the blog and read them there, and send your own comments if you like. It’s fun.
What I am seeing, as I read them, is there are lots of ways to get a horse in a trailer, and like I say, I have a WAY, not the only WAY, but a way that has worked pretty darn good for me over the years and I know will work for you as well. The other thing I am seeing is people use food, a lot, to get horses in trailers, and I don’t have a problem with that, as long as you have food with you all the time. I don’t, so I can’t, and don’t rely on it to get the horse in the trailer. I want my horse to load because I asked him to, not because there is a food reward for getting in. Having said that, I will use food, later in the program, to help him get comfortable with the trailer, but I’m not giving it to him because he got in the trailer. Does that make sense?
I know that trailer loading can and is a problem for lots of people. It was for me for a long time too, but with the method I use now, I have not had a lick of trouble. I hope that the info you find here will help you too..
The boys have had a couple of days off but that’s over.. time to get to it.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
