    Foal
    Little Aine is already tearing around the pasture in circles around mom as she eats. She seems like she already got taller. She loves to scamper all around the herd, and lay in the sun napping.

    Foal
    Ha, good point! We have been working with her, touching her all over, etc, and she is very used to us being around, no fear at all. We have a little halter for her, does anyone have thoughts on when to start putting it on her? This is our first foal...so we are like first time parents of a new baby. Another thing, the flies are awful this year, anybody know of a good fly deterrent that we can use on her? Nothing seems to last??

    You can start putting the halter on her now to get her used to it. DO NOT Leave it on her unattended.
    Remember her attention span and patience are not going to be very long so keep any training session short about 15 minutes. Shalom

    Foal
    We do keep sessions with her short, about 10-15 minutes at a time. We also watch both her and mom for signs that they have had enough and back off when they show its time. We let her be a horse first and foremost. We don't bother her when she is asleep or eating, either. We are here all day long, so they are never really unattended, but I would not ever leave a halter on her for long, and certainly never unattended. We are doing our best to start her out right, partly from NOT doing what we saw others do wrong. She already lets us handle her, will cuddle with us, and is not afraid of us touching her or being around her. She has learned how to kick those back legs up, and we aren't encouraging that either. As cute as it is, I value my teeth.

    Foal
    Updated photos of Aine!

    Six week old Aine is growing like a weed! Right now she looks like a hobo, losing her foal hair around her muzzle and eyes. She is ornery, very ornery! Everyone who sees her tells us she is TALL, very tall. I know this might be common knowledge around here but people tell us there is a bone in a horse's leg that is the same from birth, and you can measure it and figure out how tall your foal will be as an adult. Anyone heard of that? And if so, please explain? Its the first thing everyone says, My, how tall that foal is! She especially loves to run circles around mama and then lay in the sunshine in the long grass taking a nap while the rest of the herd grazes.
