Yeah that one is getting a little snug! We have the bigger strap for that halter so will see if that helps.. if not going to have to get a new baby halter for her! She's doing so well with the halter going on and off though! Actually leading her her is next on the agenda but we're not rushing her. We've been doing some work with a butt rope and getting her to move off pressure so hopefully she'll be leading soon. And I know she's growing like crazy! Now looking back at her 1 week old pics I can't believe how different she looks and how much she's grown! Not so little anymore! Also need some opinions on creep feeding.. we haven't started with her yet (right now she's still just drinking mom's milk and she's also been eating grass and hay). I've heard people usually start creep feeding at 4-6 weeks. But I've also heard starting too early can cause them to grow too much too fast and in turn can mess up their tendons and ligaments. When do you guys typically begin creep feeding? And do you recommend a specific mare and foal feed?
