I recently just bought a weanling on Sunday. She is approx. 3-5 months old. We don't know too much about her history or breeding because we got her at a horse auction; the owner sold them seperatly and someone else ended up getting the mama. Right now we have her in with a little miniature horse gelding and he is doing great with her. She hardly leaves his side. She isn't use to people coming up to her and petting her, but I do think she is used to seeing people because she doesn't spook too bad. Anyone have any suggestions on what all I can do with her when I go out to visit her. I have only had her for two days and I go out there every day for a little bit. I am not used to being around the younger horses. I am more used to the 2yr and up horses so it will take some getting use to.
I do have someone with more knowledge helping me with her; she is actually at their place right now. They have already taught me a bunch and said they thought it was time for me to get a horse of my own if I thought I was ready. We just didn't plan on getting this young of one but I think it will all work out good. She has a drag line right now and it didn't take much for her to figure it all out. She is sweet and thinks things through. Let me know what you think of her, I am still working on a name.
Here are a couple of pictures neither one really show her color but I am sure her coloring will change as she gets older:
