I got my new 6 month old Mini colt, Koda (in my avatar), 3 days ago. I was so pleased when after just 3 days of handling and training (haltering, leading, tying, grooming - he was not handled much at the farm where he was born and raised), he picked up his feet for me today and let me pick them out. Not perfectly of course, but he did in 3 days what my first Mini, Pumpkin, wouldn't let me do in 3 years. Pumpkin always acted like he couldn't balance and would panic. I'm just so pleased that Koda is already so willing to let me hold and pick out his feet after only 3 days together.
