1. What's the reasoning? Is the tape like a comforting hand pat?

 

This is genius.
Thanks!

2. Same principle as a twitch, I guess

Basically gives them something else to think about.

OR, you could just train the horse to stand still for the farrier (blacksmith). Start at an early age.

4. Since I had to talk to him anyway,

I asked my farrier if he'd ever heard of this. He said, he had a client try it years ago, and the ensuing explosions from her colt started a fire that nearly burnt the barn down.

Of course, babies are always kind of crazy....
