Hello I just wanted to tell about Ester. I went out to the round pen on Saturday and I called her, she was up in the field and she came right down and followed me in thru the gate of the round pen. I was shocked! Then I sent her around in both directions and ask her to come to me and she did. Then I sent her around again and just when she was stopping to turn to me, I walked away and she followed me. I can't believe how good she is being. At this point I was wishing I had a towel with me, but instead I used my vest I was wearing. At first she jumped away from me, so I sent her off again. We did this about 3 times until she figured out she better just stand there while I rub my vest over her. I think she was getting tired of going around. Then when I let her out of the round pen she was watching me as I walked away, so I thought what the heck and I asked her to come to me, and she did. I cannot Thank You two enough for coming and helping me. Also I found the Round Pen Reasoning Tape on Ebay. I had to bid on it 4 different times until I finally got one. I will keep you updated on Ester. Maybe you'll get around here again. Thank You both and Happy Holidays.
Tim you are the best teacher I have ever come across. You definitely know what you’re doing and you don't hold anything back when asked a question. You take more pride in what you do in one day, than most men do in a lifetime. You are one of the best horsemen,(mulemen) I’ve ever met. You're a perfectionist. I'm honored & feel privileged to have been one of your students. THANK-YOU TIM you'll be remembered by me until my dying days.
I classify you "Tim Doud" a very fair, patient man and one hell of a teacher. You are Top Notch. If there is a better person or teacher I would have to see it to believe it. I have learned more than I could ever have imagined.
Tim your very patient and you will take the time to cover everything that students are wondering about and having problems with.
Tim is a class act. He takes the time to help people and takes pride in his work. He is in my opinion a top notch person.
Tim is an excellent teacher as well as a fantastic person. His patient, courtesy and willingness to help you if you need it. He covers material thoroughly and doesn't move on until you got it. I learned so much from Tim.
I have been around horses all my life, but never mules. Tim knows more about horses and mules than anyone I know. He takes his time to teach his mules what they need. He does the same with his students. Tim has more patience than anyone I have ever seen.
Tim, I appreciate the extra time you took with students to make sure we learned everything. You are a class act and show that you really care for your students. I learned more than I ever thought I could. I also appreciate all the time you took to talk to me and answer all my questions before I arrived. You called me back on the phone more times than I can remember.
