Weird - Never heard of this before.
My old saddle bred (first horse/many bloody noses) was really hard to load or shoe - This would have been a handy tip.
Beautiful horses, Kathy! You're a pretty good photographer, too.
I currently have a Friesian mare and, a quarter horse gelding (Palomino.)
The horse in my avatar is a paint I had years ago. He lived to be 37, he was 30 in that picture.
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you figure out why.
It isn't a very good picture, I was basically just experimenting to see if I could do it.
