Hi. I am new and my name is Kelley. I live in Texas and have recently gotten a 7 month old colt. He has never been touched or had anything done with him. He has only been weaned for a week. He came to live with us Friday evening. Trailering was very stressfull for him so we left him in the trailer overnight. My daughter is in love with him and has spent hours just talking to him and patiently moving her hand closer and closer to him. Today we let him into a pen. My husband insists on roping him and forcing a halter on him
!!!!!!! I, on the other hand want to just spend time in the pen with him just gaining his trust. I convinced my husband to let me have a week with him to see if he can tell a change. I can't even get close to him at this point. So now what do I do?????? Have I set myself up for disaster? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
