April/May 2014:

  Teaching weaning to have confidence and be led by us, this is the fun bit, making friends. Foals/weanlings are taught to lead and tie up with Mum present this hopefully reduces the stress on foals when we have to take mothers away, they will no longer see us as a threat. The first day may take the longest, but it is well worth being patient and taking your time with this step, it will pay off in the long run when you have a baby that wants to work with you and not against you.
