The only foal I've ever raised is my now 6 year old gelding Dakota.

I had him halter-broke and leading by the time he was two weeks old, tying and standing tied by the time he was a month old, and by the time we weaned him at four months old he was standing tied patiently while I rode his momma off alone for several hours at a time (he was a BIG baby and was pulling my mare down badly), would pick up his hooves for the farrier and stand to be trimmed, stand patiently to be groomed, stand tied for hours, etc...

Wow! Thanks everyone! It's awesome to read all your different experiences. I've seen a lot of imprinting churn out some right bratty foals but I gues if done right it makes all the difference! Can't wait to get the baby on the ground now haha

Just seeing if this works If it does, this is my mare, Freya, today, 36 weeks pregnant by a ClydeX black tobiano. Here's hoping for a coloured filly but to be honest, so long as the mare and foal are fine, I'll be happy!
