Or was your attitude similar that the one we are seeing and TELL him? How you say it is everything. Bottom line is.... and I don't seem to be the only one who thinks this........you need to discipline your horse. PERIOD. Horses should not need a hay net to get their feet done. I have never even heard of such a thing. HOLD YOUR HORSE and this won't happen.
I agree totally with Alex-I have the feeling we will see more "rants" as you go through every farrier in the yellow pages. Unless you start taking responsibility for your horses bad behavior.
Yes I kindly told him to wait and no I gave him no attitude because he didn't give me one. I am in the process of training him so I don't see what everyone is ate up about... either way if I would have told him to wait because I need to hold my horse or wait to get a hay net the SAME thing would have happened because he ignored my warnings.
