At the barn I help at one of the mares foaled on June 2nd (a week and a day ago). The little filly is growing Very quickly and has a lot of spunk testing out her legs and trying to kick up her heels. It's cute but because she's growing quickly (she's a morgan) it will soon be a problem for her to kick out at people even though she is still young. How young is too young to put a halter on a foal? I think it would allow a better way of handling her. She enjoys following me around (I'm soon to be 15) and we play tag like games in the mornings before school, but this morning she kicked up like she has been doing lately while we weren't playing and I was petting her and she kicked up and kicked my leg. I didn't scold her too harshly because I know she's still very young but I did talk to her in a stern tone. She usually keeps her distance when we play this tag like game and it involves her chasing me around for a small distance then half rearing a distance away and then me following her around then I tag her shoulder and she turns to me. It's a cute game and she seems to know when enough is enough. She is young to be handled to too much of an extent, but leading around wouldn't be too bad I suppose. With two more foals on the way in possibly a week and a half I think she should start having a halter around her and maybe following with it on and whatnot till she can be led a small distance just to have more of a way to actually handle her. She currently is living in a large field. What does everyone think about introducing a halter around her?
