    Looked up hobble training this morning. Most of the opinions were of the 'Don't ever leave the horse unattended' type, especially if it were a high strung horse or in hobble training.

    The trainer needs to assist the horse in lifting its head quickly if it falls so it doesn't hit its nose on the ground, and if the horse panics, it could cause temporary and permanent injury to itself very quickly.

    Not for me nor any horse of mine...

    Yea, none of it sounded true to me either. The entire fairy tale just doesn't ring true.

    Is there any evidence that a horse actually died at CA farm other than the facebook page?

    Maybe the magical horse was already hobble trained so these worries do not apply.

    Lots and lots and lots of horses are hobble trained, it is not a dramatic horrible thing.

    How do we even know for sure that it died while being hobbled? This story is so sketchy that I don't necessarily believe any report I've heard so far.

    I was wondering if there was any evidence this horse was even AT his farm.

    And it could be a very good skill for a horse to have. Just like everything else, there are ways to hobble train that is not tramatic for the horse.

    In one picture the horse is a stallion, but she later refers to him as a gelding...

    I have a feeling this majikal horse never existed...

    Most of the pictures she posts are clearly of other peoples horses and her captions are all about her horses... it's an odd situation for sure. I wonder if CA will respond in some way?

    I've hobble trained several horses (more than 3) and have never had one actually panic. They stand there thinking they are cemented to the ground and graze around them and eventually they either hop or take little baby steps to move around. I had a mare on a pack trip who was hobbled take little tiny baby steps all the way across a large meadow to sniff noses with another horse, squeal, and take little baby steps all the way back to where she started.

    This woman is definitely out there. However, if it's not true, is there a response from CA?

    The FB page was updated again this morning with a photo of a gleaming blue black stallion in a dreamy green clover pasture. There is NO WAY that this is the same horse as the faded bay black with the hoof boot eating from a hay pile in a dry lot... not in a former home... not in another life- it's not the same horse. Her website farm pictures show a dry lot style flat ranch with pipe fencing ajacent to a packed full of houses subdivision. And I say that as the owner of a black horse who does change colors during the year. That heavily feathered stallion is not the same as the meagerly feathered horse with the white heel bulb on his right hind, and his mane falls to the wrong side, and it's surely not the same forelock... not ever. The horse getting the tummy scratch is also not the same horse, nor is the leggy one with his mane in braids trotting by the capped t posts remotely resembling the faded horse with his foot booted.

    Who is the lady doing the belly scratch and who is the purple fairy?

    Why would you post pictures of other horses without acknowledgment as you announce the death of your own?

    Why, if you have a majikal pasture pet who can't be ridden- is the only marked photo of him on your website a head down hay eating picture? Couldn't we at least braid his mane full of fairy flowers and get a few snaps of him playing dress up? What else is there to do but play my little pony with him?

    I also noticed that there is some very questionable stuff going on last year with the little black foal and white percheron mare who had to go to the vet in an emergency- I think someone who knows Lippizans called foul.

    Looking back through her posts, she stated (before sending her horse to CA) that her vet warned her the training program was so tough her horse may come back hairless.......WTF?

    Another thing, would CA allow Bigblackhorse to be buried on his place?? And another, free training? I would think giving back the training fees would be the best deal.

    CA is in Stephenville, I've seen his place when I drove by. Maybe he does, but I don't think he has the room for a burial spot unless he has a whole lotta pasture out back. His place is IN Stephenville, best I can remember. Maybe another pasture somewhere??

    I looked at krayzee laydee's twitter and no mention of her magikal pony's passing. And she's tweeted recently. My BS meter is way off the charts with this whackadoo.

    Hobble training could save your horses life. My mare, when I used to board, got tangled in some old barbed wire that was in a tree line (in the ground, we didn't know it was there) and she just stood there, we don't know for how long. The BO went out to feed and she didn't come up and he was instantly worried as she is usually first. He grabbed a flashlight and went out to find her. She was standing there quietly with a stink face ("About TIME you got her! Now cut me loose so I can EAT damn it!") and he ran back to the barn, got the clippers and ran back. She stood there stock still while he uncut the wire from around her front legs (it was a coil).

    She had only a few superficial cuts, called the vet anyway, said she was fine and lucky.

    But yea back to the topic, the facebook page SCREAMS wack-a-doo with all the fairy postings and pictures of horses that aren't hers. On her actual webpage, the horse that died was listed as for sale 12k.

    I guess some of us teach or horse verbal commands like "stand" and "back" and "Good girl". I knew a TWH that got tangled in wire and stood like a pro while she was clipped out of a trail riding situation but she knew the word 'stand' and was a quiet horse to begin with.

    Unfortunate incident but surely hobbling and walking away has some merit or Clinton A wouldn't be so well respected I'm sure... Just not my cup of tea (hobbling), so to speak.

    That's what I was trying to imply was my question with the comment that she seemed to be preparing her readers for the news...


    Then again, it WOULD make sense if it was her fairy tale horse!

    I have also hobble trained 1 horse. It's a useful skill for them to have and really should be done more often
