As of now they have done nothing with the foal. I was on my own with the horses this weekend and I wanted to scream. So my husband came over and put fencing up to make an alley way of sorts. It works for now but seriously. That's such a waste of a horse. He's a registered German Riding horse. Absolutely beauty with great blood line, but he's an ***. Not his fault I know. Have any of you ever heard of Equine Affair?
Regarding horse training, there's a couple that raises Haflingers not far from me & they leave the foals out w their moms & don't even touch them till after they're weaned. Then training doesn't start until they're well over a year or two old when they're sent off to the Amish to be trained. Those geldings do alright. They're not very people oriented, but they're not dangerous either. Probably helps that the Haflingers by nature are very gentle horses. Suppose there are different theories on how to train a horse.
