Lately, I've been browsing the web for horse tips ect. Since both my brother and my sister's boyfriend are thinking of getting working drafts for forestry work.
Out of the many sites that got my goat there was one certain one that stood out.
(I can't mention what it is because of filtering, but some of you might guess. Specifically I read the whole section on tying) I read it, and every post was miles long, lacking good grammar, and very, very single minded in view.
I was looking for some safe-tie tips, since the horses would be working around machinery and loud noises.
My rant/questions/I-don't-know-what-to-call-it is, does everybody agree with the idea that a horse should be solid tied every time it's tied? I was always taught that if you teach a horse to solid tie whilst its young, then you can tie it anywhere anyhow.
After a barn fire, I definitely disagree with the thoughts on this site. After all, if an aggressive dog is let loose on the yard, or there is a barn fire, how will the horses get free if its tied by a thick rope to a post?
Does anybody else have any sites they wish they could comment on? What would you say?
Thanks for reading!
