The stallion that my mare is bred to, produced a colt this past monday. Cute little bay dun. I show with the foal owners and they were telling these unbelieveable stories today about this colt.
He is viscious! A complete brat they are saying.
The granddaughter (whos 17) imprinted the foal Monday. By Thursday, this foal is kicking at them, striking at them. Baring his "gums" at them and pinning his ears. The grandmother is actually scared of him.
I have yet to see him. But this is so interesting to me. Supposedly the dam is a real...witch. But while the foal is doing all this stuff, the mare isnt doing anything. She's not acting wigged out or being difficult.
I want to go see him myself, but im curious if anyone has ever had a foal like this before? How in the world do you handle such a situation with a newborn without scaring them?
Its slightly amusing to me...Then again, I hope these 2 ladies are up for the job to handle him, cause if they don't work with him and he's like this at less then 1 week old, I can't imagine what he'll be like at 1 year.
