ride the horse off property away from its usual haunts. That should tell you pretty easily how its gonna be. You dont need a grab bag of props.

If the horse appears rather docile run you hands along it's body then try to slip your hand under it's tail, about a hand width down. If he clamps down tight he's likely not tranquilized.

Doing these types of things will in the end not prove much to my way of thinking.

A horse that is not reactive to something done in its barn, may well change and be a nutjob at another barn, due to feed, babying owners, or ignorant handling.

And if you did something like what you are suggesting doing, or have done to one of my horses? You'd be wearing that bottle, internally.

If you want to do something foolish with your horse, that you own? Fine, but doing it to someone else's horse is a major mistake.

Two important things to look at are the feet and diet. Those will make the difference between having a low maintenance horse and giving all your $$s to your vet, farrier, and feed store.
