Training methods

Maybe hubby and I are a little odd but we like to do "stuff" with the horse's on a regular basis. Both of these guy's are dead broke, but like most horse's the have their foibles. One of which is tarps, so......... on a nice day with nothing better to do we did this:

OMG George what IS that thing?



I sure don't like the looks of this, why is my food on that THING!!



"Dad" helping Kooter, could his neck get any longer?



Come on George, see if you suck you butt up you can reach.



Your right Kooter, let me hold this thing down for you, no George I can't look:( I guess it's easier with your eye's closed)



Okay, get this out of our paddock now, the hays all gone!

I gotta get a tarp!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I really believe it makes a much more confident horse throwing all this stuff at them with no pressure from us. If you want the hay then deal with the tarp.

That is great!
I love the picture of Kooter with his eyes closed.


Knowing my little porkers, they'd run to it just to get food.
There's not much that stops them in that sense!

Excellent training idea, as well!
It works excellent for trailers too, if a horse is afraid to load.
Things are always so much easier when the horse thinks it's THEIR idea. Somehow they turn it around so it seems smarter. :roll:
LOL

I do that with the kids' yard toys...bikes, basketballs,hula hoops,my 4yo sons little tykes truck and stuff like that. I just take the stuff out to their pen and leave it be...they will eventually investigate it. I love the idea of the tarp and the hay......go get it boys!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
