I printed out this information yesterday and took it home. On our way out the the barn I was telling my mother about the back lifts and showed her the paper I had printed out. She says to me "oh, yeah, I did that with him the other night!" in kind of a caulky voice as if to say she already knew all about it. She then finished reading the page and started laughing. Apparently when she did it, she didn't use the light circular motions and basically cupped her hands and tapped his underside with all ten fingers repetedly. His reaction - caulked his head back at her and just stood there watching her as if to say "what is the crazy lady doing to me?!?", and did not flinch his back once. "No wonder he looked at me like that!" she said after reading the paper in her hand. It was pretty funny, and I just thought I would share and again say, thanks for posting this, otherwise I would be learning some very incorrect methods from my mother!! Ha-ha :)
