Iv recently just brought an Andalusian x Thoroughbred 10month old Colt. He is still in the owners paddock atm, while I organise a Vet to Rob him of his manly hood (cut) & a paddock to put him out to for a year.
Iv had years of expirence with horses, but this is the first time iv floated a Colt (Not yet Weaned).
Just recently iv heard of some pretty horrific stories with floating foals for the first time... Someone said to float the foal with another horse (I can't remove the mare from the paddock with him, although I do have a quiet Quarter Horse I would trust to be in there with him).
Do you have any advice on Floating him for the first time?
Also, I have an Extended float (Length & Height), He would have alot of room in there... would that cause a problem?
He is well handled, leads, ties, can pick up feet etc... He just does the typical Colt thing (nipping, grabbing the lead etc).
Any Help would be much Appreciated! As you can probably tell, I am freaking out alittle haha..
