    As somebody that works the in-gate I prefer them to just walk on foot out of the ring. Even at schooling or unrated shows. That's part of the "learning" experience.

    Another thing to consider is not all of them make it in life in general. Not something you think of with young horses, but it does happen.

    I think that sounds like a fine option.

    I'm on the Gulf coast, but I am guessing all the rain that left here late this morning is probably hitting them now? We had some microbursts, power outages & now water is everywhere!
