Thank you everyone, I really rather not trade them for trained horses because I've already fallen in love with them and even though it's going to be a challenge I think this is going to help me become better with horses and teach me as well as them. I plan on going to college to become an equestrian vet one day.

I have been watching Clinton Anderson and I've been getting his magazines, it's very useful. (:

I will take a look at that link.

Hi that's alot to take on Clinton Anderson is good, he is easy to understand. There is a book for 4H that gives very basic instructions for working with horses, it has lots of pics and very clear language. They also have the beginnings of teaching your horse to pick up his feet. It helps to have someone who knows something about horses and watching lots of videos and reading lots of books. It can be very confusing the language that is used in a lot of books, so try to get stuff that is very basic until you pick up the language. Good luck!
