That's one of my biggest pet peeves! It takes six firefighters to cut the roof off, and peel a door. But I'm by my dang self to load it all on my truck. I once hauled a car that I helped the FD turn into three pieces. They needed towtrucks to seperate the halves, to extract the passengers. Then the frickers left! Sonsa..........

Well, the semi took my door off, but they did work on the roof and front end.
And there was quite a bit of debris for the poor trucker to load up. And, of course, in the worst possible weather.
The worst part? I don't remember if they were hot or not...
Get up and go likes this.

Sorry, OP, for derailing your thread. It's a bloody tradition for me. Blame my ADD.

If a horse is afraid of your 'patting' then it means you're doing something wrong - presenting a threatening attitude rather than a rewarding one so that sort of says something about that Parelli persons way around horses doesnt it
My horses get patted all the time, always before I get off them its a good pat on the neck and ''good girl/good boy' Horses like to know you're happy with them.
If I get a young horse thats not been used to handling I start off with a scratching and rubbing thing and build on that
I actually think that patting a horse and it being OK with it and enjoying it is a really good trust building exercise

Your horse is going to read your body language associated with each pat, wack, or what ever else. Its all about how you feel and your relationship with your horse. I can make Ke do stuff easy and other people not so much it works on the same principal.
