Quarter Circle Corral



Looks like it is horse shoeing time at the Quarter Circle Corral near Birney Montana. The picture was taken in 1941. Looks like this guy actually ties the leg up as he works on changing the shoe.

  1. What kind of fancy knot is that?

  2. This is called a "Scotch hobble" and is used to work around a horse that is difficult to manage and kicks in aggression or fear.
    It's very useful to use when training a horse to accept restraint, as putting the Scotch hobble on the horse doesn't endanger the person. But like any restraint, care must be used to keep from giving rope burns to the horse.
