poco bueno

I was recently given a 4 month old colt. He is a poco bueno quarter horse. I am ashamed to admit that I know very little about horses. This is my first one. He is very well mannered and I hope my ignorance doesn't scar him to bad. Is there anything anyone can tell me about the breed. Possibly some tips where training him or myself.

if you aren't too horse savvy. It would be VERY wise to purchase, or check out at the library, lots of horse books that will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know.

If you have enough money, it would be very wise to invest in a riding instructor, they can help you with your foal and they can help teach you more about horses.

Also, most of the time foals aren't supposed to leave their mothers until about 6 months, is your foal still being fed mama's milk??

You can tell a gelding, you can ask a mare, but you must discuss it with a stallion.

I'd hope you wouldn't want to breed him but Poco Bueno is the major sire that carried the HERDA gene (hereditary equine regional dermal asthenia). Have him tested.

Congrats! I have had many Poco Bueno horses, and I have always had wonderful times with them - they are very level headed, calm, and willing to learn. Work with him every day, expose him to many things (tarps, plastic bags, logs, bridges, ect ect ect).

Poco Bueno is a good line and as far as quarter horses in general go, it's a very, very versatile breed. Your horses body type and confirmation will kind of determine what discipline best suits him, but in all honosty, they (like arabs) can do just about ANYTHING.

I think you will really enjoy him. Don't worry too much about ruining him, just ask questions, lots and lots of questions, there is a book out there by John Lyons, it's called "bringing up baby". I found it really helpful...

Good luck!

I used that book with my weanling and it was wonderful. It's $14.95 from Amazon.com
