Yeah it always is able to pull a laugh out of anyone watching. No not asked for. When he gets frustrated he rears, and when that doesn't work he gives up on life and lays down. He doesn't roll or try and get up fast and run away...he just lays there......
I was unable to use my arm for a little while, I thought I had broke it. But it was all good.
any of my boys would have stand up and run away lol, they usually get pretty scared when I hin the floor lol
Jake doesn't get back up when he falls. Pretty scary the first time he did it. I thought he was dead. Good benefits of teaching your horse to lay down on command and then be relaxed.
I know this is off topic but I have another temper tantrum where he did the same thing.
I was using a crop to try and encourage him to move his butt, and he flew off the handle. This was from a year ago, I no longer handle situations like this in the same way. No need to comment. This horse knew how to side step way way way before this day. I asked him to do it with his head down and he refused to listen to my leg after that.
