I stand at tess's near side shoulder and pick that leg up. Then I put a small bit of carrot behind her knee and pull back gently and while im doing this I gentley pull back on the lead rope. Make sense? Or instead of holding the leg up, you could tie it up with a soft cotton rope that wont pull tight around its fetlock.
Works good and tess is now a pro at doing it
it is also a good stretching exercise
