I had a blm mustang filly I adopted at her age and the way I halter broke her was by putting her in a 10 by 10 pen and using a pole to touch her - I could stand in the middle and no matter where she went I could touch her with it. When she tolerated it I backed away (release of pressure). Did that for a while until I could touch her, then worked on that for awhile. Once you can touch them with hand an pole, you make pretty fast progress from there. Good luck, with him - he is a cutie.

I also like the name Chance (because you took a chance on him).

Exactly what I plan on doing! He's already super curious about me and so is his little filly friend lol
Thank you for your advice I really appreciate it!

Ace- that might be something to try! Thanks for the idea! (:

Just came back from a visit with my colt. He followed me all around the pen but still won't let me touch him. He does eat out of my hand now so we are taking baby steps!

I have not named him yet as I gotta see what name "fits" him well. Here are some photos I snapped about an hour ago [:

(I was sitting on the ground as I took these, you can clearly see how curious he is! Lol )

He's adorable, and on the way to handsome quickly! That first shot of him with his nose down shows a very "mischevious" look in his eye! As if to say, "I know you want to handle me, but it'll happen only when I see fit!" hee hee Sorry I can't think of a good name, but almost want to think, "Mr...?" So awesome you adopted him! - best of luck :)
