HOW TO BREAK A COM? FOR
In saddling the colt 'he should be
turned round in the stall and fastened
to each pillar on either side, allowing
him sufficient head to move backward
and forward freely, says J. P. F. Bell
in the London Live Stock Journal.
The breaker should take the saddle
and hold It forward to his bead go that
he can see and i'.mell it, soothe* bim
gently by kind words and caress htm
by patting him softly behind the ears.
He should move quietly up to his near
side, push the stirrups well up through
the leathers and fold the girths across
the top of the saddle. After making
much of the colt for a few minutes he
should slip the saddle gently over hiin.
place it squarely upon bis back, slip
the girths quietly from the top of the
saddle, and in girthing him he must be
careful not to draw too tightly at first.
Nothing frightens a colt more than
straining him round the middle sudden
ly. The breaker must never hurry nor
do anything clumsily, but move about
the colt with ease and confidence, and
he will soon grow familiar with tho
appearance and feeling of the 'saddle.
It shonld be frequently put an^ aiVl
taken off his back, first from one side
and then from the other, and when he
becomes thoroughly accustomed "'to this
the fia ps of the saddle should li'e beaten
very gently at first to familiarize hiru
with noise like the swinging of straps
and rattling of irons.
After training the colt with the feel
ing of the saddle for three or four con
secutive days he should receive lessons
in turning to the bit. This is best ac
complished by walking close to' his
side—the near side—and reaching the
right hand well over the withers to use
the off rein, while the left is worked
by the other hand, making him move
backward and forward" and turn in all
The colt should be led in the open a
few days by a long rein attached to the
front cavesson ring. He should be tak
en along public highways, so that he
may become familiar with objects on
Many colts are frightened to pass
swiftly driven vehicles and "scorch
ing" cyclists. From the number of bi
cycles now being ridden over the pub
lic roads, together with the phenome
nal appearance of an occasional motor
car, the, passing of those objects quiet
ly by horses is an important and essen
tial point in their early training.
In addition to the ordinary breaking
is a capital'plan to fix a
chain to the crupper just above the
colt's .quarters. The chain should be
about eight feet long, so that it will
bang about a foot beneath the flanks of
the colt on either side of him. It will
dangle and play about his legs and
flanks by the motion of his body and
will have a tendency to remove any
ticklishness that may be about him. A
pair of common farm mouth bags
should be tied together, fixed in the
center of the saddle and suspended as
far -as the feet of the rider will reach.
They should be filled with some heavy
material—corn or turnips will do—and
their weight, pressing against the sides
of the colt, has an excellent effect in
preparing bim for the pressure of the
The colt should frequently be driven
round in a circle, first to the right and
then to the left, and never too long at
a time. In this wa-y it is easy to give
him plenty of exercise before he can
be ridden. He should be sent round
at a trot and a canter, sweating him a
little, but not tiring him. In running
him to the left the right hand rein can
be used as a whip if necessary, and
vice versa in running to the right .The
breaker should always stop the colt
when the direction of his couase is re
versed and induce him to walk close
up, when he should be encouraged by
fondling and kind, assuring words. He
will learn this almost sooner than any
thing else if he is kindly treated The
reason for stopping bim when his
course is reversed Is to prevent him
running one action into another and
confusing his paces. Walking, trot
ting, pantering and galloping are all
distinct paces and should be done sepa
The halter should always be left on
the head of the colt below the bridle.
The halter shank should pass between
the. fore legs and be securely fixed to
the saddle girths, and when the colt
fhrows up his head the pressure comes
upon his, nose, which, does not check
him so severely as when the strap is
attached' to the rings of the bit. The
Qriving reins should be ten yards long,
and they should pass from the colt's
mouth along through the stirrups. The
stirrups should always be fixed to the
girths to prevent them being displaced
When the reins are drawn upon., In

mend mounting proper in the open, it
IS well to accustom the colt to the
weight and appearance of the rider in
the stall. The colt should be turned in
the stall and loosely fixed to the pillar
rings on either side. The breaker most
work quietly about him for some time,
catching the saddle by the right side,
and lean the weight of the body upon
it. He should insert the left foot In
the stirrup, taking it out and putting it
in often, so as to get the coK to un
derstand what the noise means. When
he has learned this in the stall, be

under this treatnient, the breaker must||i^^g

from'both sides-of the colt and then- •sfk'.'iu

the saddle and move the arms,and legs,
continuously about him. He should
move them cautiously at first and
gradually increase the motion accord-.JXjyr

should mount and dismount often oaVv^i
both sides of him and never appear to§

plisli in ten minutes what It will take*
an hour and a half to execute properly.
Some breakers recommend mounting
the colt in a court or any large ln
closure, but it is always attended with
more or less danger, both to the colt
and the rider, owing to the close prox
imity of the walls' of tbe building
Therefore* mounting in the open is ur
gently recommended for general safety.
The best system is to take the colt
into the center of a large field—stubble
if possible—and in addition to the reins
a long coil of cord should be attached
to his bead in front: so that if any
mishap occur he can be prevented from
running away by keeping hold of the
cord. The cord should be loosely roll
ed up and suspended from the left arm
of the rider.
He should get the colt, by gently'
fondling him. to stand perfectly steady,
and this will best be effected by giv
ing him half an hour's coursing in the
long rein previously. A*s soon as he is
quiet be should take the reins along
with a full handful of his mane, in the
left hand and place the right hand on
the off side of the saddle, with the
whip lying horizontally under tbe palm,
insert the left foqt in the stirrup, raise
the body gradually up, and, whenever
the balance is reached, slip the leg
quietly yet swiftly across him and in
sert the foot in the stirrup. He should
settle the body well down in the saddle,
keep a cool head and ailways be1 ready
for any emergency.
In putting the colt into motion the
breaker should keep his bands- well
down on the front of the saddle and
urge him gently with the heels. It is
always better to ride him without
spurs at first If the colt does not ap
pear inclined to start the breaker
should draw gently on the left rein, at
the same time closing the left leg
against him and coax him by kind. as
•\Vhen he moves forward, the breaker
should not be overparticular in forcing
him to go in any special direction, but
should keep him circling widely round
at a walk. The colt should not be trot
ted nor galloped until he is quite fa
miliar with all the rider's movements
in the saddle.
If the colt should plunge and rear,
the breaker must bend well forward

on his neck, slacken the reins, seize
him by the mane and as soon as he
descends from his evolution push him
forward and keep him in" motion.
If he should buck and kick, be should
take him well in hand abd stick the
knees close into the saddle flaps. He
should warn him in stern accents to
desist at the same time giving him an
occasional hard pull with the rein,
and if the rider maintains his seat the
colt will soon cease all attempts to dis
lodge him and move along in a quiet
and tactical manner.
ProdncInK the Bacon Hog.
The cost of producing bacon bogs is
figured out by William Parkinson of
Ontario at 2% to 2% cents per pound
for hogs weighing 200 pounds live
weight. Mr. Parkinson has fed over
2,000 hogs in the last ten years and
keeps a close account of the cost of
producing them. Taking a pen of ten
pigs 5 weeks old on May 1, he figures
their cost at $1 each. In addition to
skimmilk to be fed the first three or
four months they would require 3.100
pounds of cornmeal at 80 cents per
100 pounds arid one ton of wheat bran
at $12 per ton. This would bring the
total cost of the pigs to $46.80, and on
Oct 1 they'ought to weigh 200 pounds
He sold a lot last year at that time
for 414 cents per pound live weight,
making the sum received $85 and leav
ing a profit of $38.20. Beiug a dairy
farmer and having an abundance of
buttermilk which could not be disposed
of otherwise, it was fed to the bogs and
no value was set on It Many years'
experience has shown him that tho
cost of produclng these bogs does not
exceed 2% ceats 'per pound for the
