my very first horse was a yearling PMU straight off the feedlot, never been handled, not even halter-able.
When he came home, I sat out in the field with him for 3 days straight, just to let him get used to my presence, he would come and go as he pleased...unfortunately I gave myself sunstroke...should have sat in the shade!! After the 3 days I was able to put a hand on him, and he went into the shelter and I followed him, he was used to my presence, altho still nervous, he allowed me to love him up. He then followed me or anyone else else after that like a puppy. By the 7th day I was able to halter him.
