We decided to buy 2 colts the other day.. One being my dream horse.. (we do plan to geld, but that is also a question I will ask in this message).
First question : I have heard its better to break a horse before gelding them??
2: are colts harder to train than phillies?
3: we got halters on the colts and can touch their face/shoulders.. have not went any further yet because they still are skiddish some
4: should we separate the colts for easier training or train them together?
5: should I allow them to smell new objects? I have read both ways.. one being that if I allow it, then I am teaching them it's ok to check things out first instead of trusting in me as the leader.. then I have heard, to allow them to smell things..
Now, here are the 2 new colts.
This is Rajah ( 1 year old)
And this is Rajah with the other colt (havent named yet but he's about 8 months old)
