Cori, I thought about that. The people I got him from kept a collar on him and I didn't like it, but kind of understand why. You can catch him readily with grain, though it does involve a fight of chasing off Willow to get to him with it safely lol.
BTW, your girth extender is packaged up and ready to mail, I just haven't sent it yet, I've had a houseguest all week and haven't got much of anything done at all! I will mail it out on Tuesday I promise!
King, the issue with Monty is when you do catch him, about 30% of the time he takes off, and a rope halter is all that will hold him, trust me he has broken 2 nylon halters already. However carrying a rope halter with me and putting it on him while working him is now what will be done.
And here is a picture of a cockleburr:
The little pokey heads dry up and come off in the horses mane and tails, and make an absolute mess! I actually roached Claymore, Finn, and Misty this week due to fighting off these darn weeds.
