Disciplining a weanling??? HELP!

Okay so I am getting my weanling next weekend. I am all set for her to come but I was think about some ways of training. But if she trys to kick, bite, etc. what should I do?! I have two older horses and I know how to discipline them if they are bad but is it the same for disciplining your weanling? HELP!

Depends on how you discipline.

I will push them away from me or flick/pinch there neck if they bite me. I'll crowd into their space if they crowd into mine, not over aggressivly, but just enough to get a bit of respect. I don't excpect them to be perfect but biting, kicking rearing and body checking are not allowed.

I have the same expectations for my babies as my older horses. Bad behavior is dealt with the same way as the older ones. If you excuse bad behavior because, 'he/she's just a baby', soon you'll have a monster on your hands (children are the same way! Lol). Lots of round penning and leading, walking around together, hand grazing, etc will give them lots of opportunities to learn what is acceptable behavior. Good luck!!

Yep, I handle my weanlings the same way I do my older horses, expect the same things out of them. Coddling a baby is the worst possible thing you could do to them.
