    Even on my mares best day for the farrier, we normally cant get through it without her yanking her feet away a few times (forever a WIP). Especially the fronts. Today, I am a believer. My amazing farrier & I saw this floating around FB so today we tried it.

    She. Did. Not. MOVE.

    Stood like a brick... aside from nearly going cross eyed trying to see it. She was amazing. Im amazing!

    Cheers to whomever thought of it!

    I am so trying this! I have a farrier appointment next week. I'll let you know how it goes. My guy stands well but only if I work him before and if he's had his breakfast. But my farrier only has been able to schedule appointments at 8 am so I can't do either of those things for him. I expect him to behave regardless though and he does pull a bit so would like to find ways to get the booger to stop:rolleyes:

    My mare is so naughty sometimes. Just... opinionated. I am surprised how well this worked! Plus, it was really funny.

    Weird. I have a few tricks up my sleeve for getting horses to behave but haven't seen this. Mare is pretty good for farrier and clipping and such, but she does paw so I wonder if it'll help with that.

    It was the funniest thing. At the very least, the rest of us were amused! haha

    I saw that on FB and posted it for my farrier. He said we are definitely trying this next Friday.... Boon is not too bad, but he constantly wants to do something with his face. Maybe this will keep him occupied!

    Weird! I can't watch the video (youtube blocked at work) but love the pic. Hmm... my farriers are coming Weds, and we are doing my two wigglies, Harrison Fjord and Breeze the Clyde... maybe I'll try this with them! My farriers will think I'm nuts LOL

    Whole different thing between shots and farrier.

    This occupies them and gives them something to worry with.

    Would not rely on it in a situation where someone can really get hurt.

    And also caution needs to be taken to make sure horse doesn't ingest it, as it could happen if not placed high enough up, or is too long.
