Hi There: Another Question concerning the frightened horse. My 12 year old Gelding Quarter horse Which I got last year, Nods all the time when he has his bridle on. And then other times he doesn't. Like I said, I think he was mistreated sometime in his life. He trail rides wonderfully, and behaves quite well. But sometimes when I try to catch him he bobs his head like snowflakes are falling on him (steady). Sometimes it doesn't matter if we are riding with others or not. My farrier floated his teeth last fall and this spring he said he was ok, so thats not it. He also has a V shaped gouge out of his tounge. I don't know. Any suggestions! Thanks Becky.
