    Oh, dba .. it's not the camera that is so magical .. any monkey can take a picture ... it's the "communicating from the camera to the computer to the forum" that is magical....

    Any advice you have is appreciated. I was just concerned that over the nose might be a bit harsher than the chin and he responded really well after a couple of light yanks.
    You have more experience using one than I so if I have placed it wrong let me know. Shalom
    Just seeing this now, as you can see from the other responses, it is not merely a case of right and wrong, but a lot of what suits you.

    While the chain is under in show classes, to me that help the head up, elongated neck look that is trying to be achieved. My personal choice when handling my stud was chain over the nose, not that I used it all the time, but when I needed it, on it went, as others have said, if you give a snap on the chain when it is over, then the nose tends to come down, and it put me in control quicker.

    I have also on a couple of occasions actually ran it through his mouth and used it more like a bit, that may get me flamed, but at least I didn't get hurt by a stud who was having a momentary lapse in respect.

    Here's a nice headshot of Sam from today......

    He was a very nice boy today.

    I know how you feel Golden. I felt if I put through the mouth the flames would find me. I have never had to use a chain on any of my boys but have in halter classes. Other stallions that have personalities or a lack of manners that said a chain was necessary to remind the animal just who was in charge I used under, over and through the mouth if the other two options didn't bring the desired result. Used correctly and knowing how the horse is likely to respond (move toward or away from pressure) any of hose can add a measure of safety. Thanks kctop for the pic. He's a such pretty boy DBA. He's gone to a great home obviously with lots of potential.

    Thanks golden horse for the advice. I have yet to use the chain as you can see he does well with a rope halter.
    After calming down immensely since his arrival I don't think I will need to use the chain. Maybe when breeding so I will experiment with both over and under.
    I hand graze him 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon. He looks forward to the time spent out of his pen and is starting to greet me at feeding time .
    Thanks kctop for the picture. She took a lot and even petted all the foals.
    Maybe we can talk her into sharing those.
    I am reluctant to post pictures of Sam in his current condition. I don't want any marks against the ladies reputation that has kept him for over 2 years. Without any compensation might I add. Shalom
