Sorry Wild spot-I think that MOST of us, put in the same situation would do the same thing. I for one will not stand there watching my horse haning there like she descibed, eyes rolled back, etc. I had one horse collapse like this (from a miracle collar, no less) and hope to NEVER see it again. If he never ties, so be it, if he is that bad. I don't tie all that often anyway, but that is just me. I ground tie. In other words-my horses "park" and quite well.
