He is a coming 4 month old(9-7-13 is when he'll be 4 months) Tennessee Walking Horse colt, he's out of Pusher & Generator lines. He's my first foal to bring up entirely on my own. I've worked with weanlings & on up from there, but never from a newborn up.
Here's some things about him:
He is halter broke. He comes to you, knows his name, & waits patiently while you put his halter on or take it off.
He is fine with brushing- harder bristled brushes or soft brushes.
He lets you look at his teeth, play with his ears, rub/touch him all over without a problem.
Leads with or without a lead rope, too or away from his mother or the other horses.
Picks up all four hooves, while being tied or just standing out in pasture.
Ties out really good also.
Is this good for a young colt or am I behind? Anything else I should be worried about teaching him? Also, I've been creep feeding him for the past month in hopes to make the weaning process a tad bit easier.
