Recently I found this new way of controling horses called "The Endorphin Tap" and was looking for a challenge to see how powerful this technique was, so I went to a breeding farm close to were I worked and asked them could I ride one of their un-broken yearlings.
The breeder thought I was joking until I pulled a saddle and bridle out of my car. He said "we don't have a lunge or any breaking facilities" I said that's why I choose you..
After explaining why and what I wanted to do he agreed and took me to a yearling standing in a 2-3 acre paddock. I took my gear and went to the middle of the paddock and the horse came over to investigate.
I put my bridle on and applied the "Half-tap" get to take the edge of the horse to get the rest of the gear on with as little hassle as possible...

Have any of you had any problems with it lately?
We just swapped over to it a couple of months ago. At first the horses were eating it real good. Then we noticed some bags had some bird seed looking stuff in it and the horses didn't eat it as well. Well, last week we went and got a ton of it as usual. The horses will not eat it at all. We don't see any of the seed looking things, it doesn't smell bad - but they won't eat it. We opened several bags to see if it was just one or two bags that were bad - but not one horse will eat any of it.
Dad called the Nutrena place and talked to a man there. He said that he had had other complaints of the bird seed. He said they had a new mill they were using in Louisiana and that they had already discussed that issue with them. He said it was weird that they wouldn't eat the new bags though. A few hours after that conversation, the guy called back and said a big farm down in Florida had called in to, also complaining that the horses would...
