    I have no experience at all with foals, but I see your comment here as being the same as working with a more mature horse or pony. You have to be the boss. I am certain from your comments that you have posted here that you are never going to go all in and terrify your colt, but you do have to toughen up a bit.
    I am a complete softie too, but for some reason only with my horse, I have to force myself to be tougher. It's funny because if I get one wrong look from my foster kids I address it, but my horse is my stress release, my happy time for me and me alone, so I have to correct my nature and not let him get away with anything.
