I think our knots are the same wallaby, minus your extra steps to keep her from pulling it down, lol. You can pull either end of the knot, and it pops right off?
We do have a "patience post" in the middle of our front yard, but the problem is its in a grassy spot....he'll stand completely untied and unmoved as long as theres grass under him. He also stands very well when tied to fence slats. But lets just say if it were in the middle of nowhere and he tied perfectly fine, then what would I do?
Also a little bit of background....he's an 11 y/o OTTB, on the track for eight years, which might make sense as to why he may not really respect being tied....they hold their horses for most things, and he is sooo much better when I'm holding his lead rope in one hand, and doing something to him with the other.
However, in the wood barns cross ties, the ones that acre actually secured to the wall, he's a complete statue. He just figured out in the concrete barn (where he stays) that the cross tie anchors are loose, and so if he stretches down far enough, they pop right out. I think he's just learned what he can get away with and where.
