    Im Curious how some people manage to check their horses for tattoos on their lips ?
    I have trouble actually lifting up his lip, because he starts to wiggle his mouth lol !
    Its like a suction cup O_O !
    So, any idea how to do this ?? LOL

    Lol !
    He makes it hard to lift his mouth, because he starts to wiggle the lip side to side, its hilarious but fustrating at the same time !

    It's more of a "flip" than a lift, really - you just have to get a good hold and go for it. It can help to have someone help to hold the horse so you can use two hands.

    Or you could tie him sorta tight with a cross tie to help hold his head more still then grab hold of his top lip and sorta pry it up (more effective with 2 people )

    Usually the race horses are the ones with tattoos (correct me if im wrong) :)

    ^ Im mostly checking to see if he has a tattoo I got him at an auction so :)

    I can't do cross tieing, or tieing he's a bit ... fidgety lol.
    Plus I have him on my own land and don't have a barn.. yet
