Ricci...sorry I misunderstood what you meant. I thought the only thing joinup was for is catching a horse. Its taken me a while to get him to come to me....especially while carrying a lead rope, so yeah I do consider it an accomplishment . You have to take what you can get...ya know lol.
G&ks can never tell what a horse has gone through when you get them as adults...but his obvious mistrust has made me wonder too. I have cut back on the sweet feed...I'm just sorta watching now to make sure that he maintains his weight so I can see what adjustments need to be made. Tyvm for the encouragement helps a lot, especially when a lot of people say get rid of him. I feel like he's a good horse...he just needs someone to put the effort in to build his confidence and trust. I really enjoy working with him and im hoping you are right about the summer making a huge difference. Thanks again.
MN tigerstripes.....I do go out there and pet him sometimes or bring him apples...but it would probably be a good idea to do more of that, especially since the nice weather should be just around the corner. Thanks for the tip.

Is this the tie ring you all were talking about? If I supposed to just put the lead rope through and hold it or tie?

That is just a ring and eye screw, Sandy. This is the Tie Blocker:

Blocker Tie Ring II: Legacy Tack

There are instructions that show how to use it. Basically there are three methods of putting the lead line through the tongue of the Blocker and it will give various degrees of restraint right up to "bet you can't pull this out".

Lol that makes alot more since. Tyvm iride! I was sitting there trying to figure out how I was supposed to make that ring work lol. Im just going to order the one you posted...the ring I posted is the only one they have at my local tack shop.

The blockers are expensive (more so than the plain ring) The were cheapest on Clinton Andersons web site when we got ours. I think it was a buy 4 get one free thing. Shop around for the best price on the ring and shipping.
My husband always figure they would be easy to make but you would have to take apart a snaffle bit. and be a good metal worker
I think in the long run its best to buy one.

Ty vida. I think I will leave making them to those who know what they are doing lol. I tried making a whip cause I needed one on the fly...basicaly with a stick and a piece of bailing twine....after the twine came off and went flying at him, Major said that he would move out if I tried to use any more homemade equipment I will check out Clinton Andersons site too.

Oh, and BTW, be sure you get the Blocker II. It had a nice improvement to it - a magnet that holds the tongue in place while you work with it.
