I watched Dennis Reis at one of his no dust tour stops get a horse that hated ea clipping get his ears clipped in about 30 minutes. The prop he used was a hair dryer. Spent a lot of time getting the horse acclimated to the hair dryer blowing on the ears prepared the horse for the ear clipping. I was impressed.
At the same event, I watched as Reis rolled out these GIANT rubber balls off the horses. Then the horse lied down on command. This older guy sitting next to me turns and drawls, "That's pretty neat, but I just wish I could catch my darn horse out in the pasture".
