Drugged, drugged some more, AND twitched, he was throwing us around. It wasn't pain as I said it was we were DOING SOMETHING!!!! To him... Sigh. That horse is a drama queen to the max lol.

    If you are going to tranq a horse, it has to be before horse gets upset. Trying to do it after horse is ticked off, is worthless.

    Better to go in with horse in Happy Happy Happy mode...drugs work better then.

    They do, but horses can still fight them off quite handily. At least the especially stubborn ones.
