My scotch hobble wasn't quite that fancy but it worked the same. As I mentioned that after this once she stood great for having her feet picked up and she even developed the good graces to lift her leg as a warning and set it down. If you kept doing what you were she'd kick. Usually it was someone too rough around the hocks with a stiff brush or curry. My good Alberta farrier had a few horses he had to lay down and tie up their legs in order to trim them. Once down the horse relaxes and accepts it's fate. A farrier can't afford to get beat up by a spoiled horse.
