I've tried a number of methods for halter breaking from spending time with them in the chute stroking and petting and wispering sweeth nothings in their ears to slapping the halter on and knotting them to a post. The trauma and battle of wills doesn't ever seem to diminish with whatever method I use . . . any suggestions out there? I'm not real interested in tying them to my tractor and driving them around, but I'd love to hear anything else.
