He's a looker alright. Was that trailer hooked to a truck? Also, it's never a good idea to be in front of the horse when loading you do it from the side, for the obvious safety reasons. I'm not trying to be picky, but Hubby and I own a hauling service and have seen what can happen to people.

I could make a list of bad things I'm doing. Good heavens hope no one follows this video. The dutch doors weren't allyhe open, the divider wasn't secure, the escape door was closed, I didn't remove the chest bar.

That's besides the point.

The video was merly to shoe his temper, nothing else :)

tsk-tsk! You ought to be ashamed of yourself! I officially site you with "owner stupidisity" and I (shoves crumpled paper so close to your nose that you cross your eyes to attempt to see it)... I will be coming to remove the horse from your possession.... (quickly hides crumpled paper so that you cannot see that it is really just an old mcdonalds receipt). Now I must get Mike to change my user name... I have a new horse now... a CANADIAN draft.... black one... pretty one... all mine....

Me too...... LOL

I'm sorry if my comments made you bristle. You said this was all new to him, so that made me wonder why you'd take chances.

I understand you were trying to show what a good boy he is, but safety is never "besides the point".

I appreciate the concern, to each our own.

I think knowing you horse as you do helps tons. I loaded my babies the same way the first time. Funny Shiloh did the same thing, on the second loading she wanted to go under the bar on the opposite side, goof ball
If your like me you had no idea they would just walk in. I think my girls have seen their moms load so many times it was more curiosity wondering what was in that cave

And you know what I bet that's exactly it. I think it might just be a mix of his curiosity and just him following me anywhere. I would love to see if he would load with anyone.

The real trick is getting them comfortable when the trailer starts moving. I always start going short (100 yards) distances working up to longer ones.
