Talking Bringing Home Baby!

I am very excited. We are bringing home my baby tomorrow. He is currently still at the stables with the lady I bought him from, as I was checking out DOZENS of stables this week near me to find the perfect place to keep him. She is about an hour away, so I haven't been able to go visit him.

I am very excited to have him home tomorrow! Or, close to home at least. Haha.

I have been such a worrier this week about him, since I was not close to him. (I am a super bigtime worried parent about everything. My Husband, my dog, etc.) Haha!

I am going to give him the first few days to settle in, then once he's settled we're going to start working on things. First will be picking up his feet (Previous owner did it when he was a baby, but he seems to forget a little. He tries, but seems to get confused.)

Next will be grooming. Followed by learning to be tied.

I am so excited!

Anybody have any advice/tips for me? I've ridden for so long and trained babys under saddle, but he will be my first own baby that I will be training from a youngster on up. I want to make sure I do everything right, or as close to right with him.

My goal is to have him be a super gentleman by the time we start with the breaking process.
