    We had a vet come to the farm to geld a colt. He commented on how much he really liked using the Henderson tool. Never had a horse bleed using it. Guess who was back at 3am to stop uncontrolled...

    We had an old guy that would forget that he was fed. If something distracted him while eating he would stew for his supper again until you went over and pretended to dump his bucket in his pan again....

    Our family has 2 Catahoula's from the same litter. They are about as opposite as you can get. One is very intense and the other is very laid back. I think some of your training success will depend on...
