Poor dude has been beaten on to so many trailers, which is what's caused his problem. We've got him loading up everything but his stupid back feet completely stress-free. He'll stand there with his back fetlocks resting up against the back bumper and rest one leg while he's munching on his grain. Just need to take that extra step up and we're golden. All without whips, chains, lunge lines, etc.. it's fabulous!

Oh gee.....so he has had a problem before? Well isn't that just a PITA!!

So, have you had him get in another trailer before? Is was it other people?

Well he'd never load if I was aiming for that end

If you start riding on the 19th, Allie, you should still get there in time!
Make sure Tiff owns her keep if you get her out there to give you a hand. LOL

Teehee!! She's actually maybe going to come down next weekend to see Ro and give me a hand if we haven't progressed - it's been way too long since we've seen each other! Two horse trailer.... one horse coming up.... bring Seven back with me?

Yeah, he's had some rough trailer loading experiences including brooms, whips, chains, etc. He's not "bad" just says "meh.. no thanks!" - he doesn't rear, strike, kick or anything like that, just plants his massive feet. Hahah. He's been fantastic this week though - went from planting his feet and saying "naw" to loading and unloading everything but his back feet without an issue.

Awwww that's too bad, it's one thing to have a horse be a gimp (like mine) it's another to have someone goof them up to the point of the horse being a REALLY BIG challenge! Well I hope all goes well for you! Good luck......or else you'll be riding him out there!! Lol!
