I love some of AnnaT's suggestions! How about, "Mr. MacDougal" or "Mr. McDougal" - Dougal for a barn name.... IDK :)

I'm feeding my 5 month old colt Nutrena SafeChoice, a bit of rice bran, and the Grow Colt supplement. Big Dee's has a great deal on the Grow Colt supplement! I would get him on a supplement so he has everything he needs to grow.

Had to herd him into a stall and try to get him used to human touch. Id say he did good for a wild coltn although he's still unsure of my touch and will literally qwiver when I brely touch his shoulder. Lol its so sad. About thirty minutes in he was becoming at ease more and more with the lead rope being all over him. Still have not haltered him, but day 2 comes tomorrow :)
I managed to snap some photos as I was working with him. Poor thing was scared out of his mind and his appy eyes say it all.. lol

**still haven't stuck an official name to him yet, feel free to keep throwing manly names aat me as I am writting down all the ones I like [: **

I don't have any name suggestions, But at the beginning of the year I adopted a APHA filly from an Amish Auction, from some horse traders, and she had never been messed with besides negative handling, and would try to attack you when you tryed to mess with her, but I just took my time she stayed in my round pen and I would just go in and sit, I tried join up and everything else with her but it just made her worse, hardest rescue I have ever had, out of over 15, but now she follows me around in the pasture, and already getting use to a saddle pad on her back. Some one here said once they accept you touching them it goes very quickly, and that's correct after they have that trust in you that your not going to hurt them it goes go pretty quick, it took 3 months before I could touch her, but she never had positive handling, so hopefully your colt accept it quicker.

Good luck.
