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...
