Question
hello sir. how can i get to know that horse is bolting at its feed?

Answer
HI  PIT THE FEED TUB UP HIGH ON THE WALL SO THE HORSES HEAD JUST CAN GET INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE TUB.  THEN PUT A COUPLE OF LARGE ROCKS IN THE TUB. WHEN HE EATS HIS MEAL HE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SLING HIS HEAD AND CAUSE THE GRAIN TO FLY OUT BECAUSE OF THE HEIGHT OF THE TUB AND PLUS THE LARGE ROCKS WILL KEEP HIM FINDING THE GRAIN. IF THAT DOES NOT WORK WITH THAT HORSE, THEN USE WIRE TO DEVIDE THE TUB INTO 4 SECTIONS.   THANKS ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
