My sister recently bought a 3 year old off of a dealer, she got told he was very well handled and is able to be broken in as soon as she purchased him. But, that's where it all went wrong. My sisters horse is now 4, he doesn't let anyone touch the top of his head, he also doesn't like men around him. It's pretty hard to find a female farrier around here so we need to get him used to men asap.
Val is getting moved to our farm in a few weeks so me and my mum can work with him, I'd just like a few tips and pointers as to how I can gain trust in touching the top of his head and make him trust men in way so the farrier can tend to his feet.
