i was wondering at what age do most start their horses?
right now I can halter, brush, and pick up the feet of my colt.
leading . . . We just started.
he wa born 6/10
i am just looking for suggestions-
i have herd that if they resist anything, like leading- after 5-10 minutes let them be done for the day.
but then I have also herd, that if you give in-they feel like they won and feel they don't have to listen.
i have the mare, and have been with the colt every day since his birth.
unfortuneately, my scheduel doesnt allow me to ride my horses every day, but I spend at least an hour with them each day.
so I felt comfortable starting the halter. Since he is used to me, and we spend alot of time together.
what are some experiences you have had? What has worked?
this is my first colt-and I am super excited!
btw-i know the halter thing . . .in the pasture . . But I was the only one there to take a pic! ;)
thanks for any advice!
