Friends for Foals
At the barn I go to, there is a program called "Friends for Foals". The program makes it's money by selling horse treats at shows. So far, we have around 500 dollars. The whole purpose of this program is to take that money and rescue a young foal from an auction. Then, the people in the program will get the foal used to people, tack, halters, teach it how to lead correctly and get it comfortable with the cross-ties, washstall etc... Then, when it is a well-behaved horse, we will re-sell it to someone we can trust, and with the money, buy another foal. At what age do you think the horse's should be re-sold? And are there anything you think the foal MUST learn?
