A horse will give you plenty of clues as to what it is thinking and feeling. Watch a horse and it will show plenty of sign language - both in body language and facial expressions. You just need to learn how to read them and learn to understand the true meaning. For example, the more aggressive a horses body language gets, the more it is trying to get you to understand the signs that you have previously missed. (it goes without saying that if you buy a horse that is particularly aggressive it is because the previous owner has missed all other signs and continued doing what is making the horses uncomfortable).

Dawn,

Well put, I suppose that demonstrates life skills, there is a key for every door, yet sometimes it is difficult to see if what appears to be a wall is in fact just a door.

If and when you meet a wall, there is no need to walk through it in pure confrontation. The clever options are to, "go over, under or simply around it", [ quote, A Bailey ].

The same analogies apply to farrier imprinted problems, whether created by skill or attitude. The psychological ones those which require both a physical or psychological remedy. I suppose it applies equally to remedies for certain inter-personal situations as well.

PNB.

absolutely, you will not get anywhere by trying to bash through any wall by brute force or misunderstanding the situation, it just makes the wall thicker, in my experience. when it comes to horses, even a shetland is 350kg of weight and no large man can argue and win if the pony really gets aggresive or frightened, but in contrast a small person can calm and reeducate a 17.3 WB or shire if they have read the signs correctly, understands and gives the approach to suit the individual.
we, as humans have the skill of being able to rationalise our actions and the actions of those arounds us, including the animals we handle. There is always a very good reason that horses misbehave or get frightened and it nearly always starts with mishandling or misunderstanding from the first person it comes into contact with.
Going back to do horses talk, all the time, its just that some people are blind or inexperienced.

If that horse did lick your arse, he was sending you a simple message that would read (your arse looks better than your face ) learn to read the horse.

What do you think of people who advise you to hold a hair of the horse in your hand and they will be able to what the hose wants

hi Giles
strange question:
honestly:
Witch doctors preying on the vulnerable, spiritural or misinformed. another way to make money out of horse owners.. A homeopathic fad. :)

Alright for a bit of fun, but not to be taken too seriously.

but hey some romantic horse owners got some comfort out of it, so no harm done there.

Oh Doctor I`m in trouble, I don`t know what to do.
I have a load of horses, and all without a shoe.
My husband is a farrier, whose joined the lunatic brigade,
of stumbling foot sore horses, keeping up with modern ways.
I`d rather be old fashioned and have my horses shod,
so perhaps you could please help me wake up the lazy sod.

We are all having a good drink, bark and open mind. Care to join in?

Those who see the innocent input and learn from inqisitive minds
will see there is more to life than their own blocked opinions.

live life and learn, grow and enjoy.

Okay, so that has diverted off the context of the first post, but seeing as nobody else has any real input into it that will benefit the horse owner or farrier how far should the subject digress.


If however, anybody would like to give input into the context of equine behaviour instead of referring to drink then please feel free too.
