Our first miniature horse foal!  Diamond is a talented mother.  She had him, cleaned him up, cut the cord, licked the cord, and had him nursing.  He was still partly wet when I looked in on her in the dark. i have always had Arabians and this little miniature mom was the best!  Thank you Diane for all of your help and encouragement!

Thank you, I am a stout little boy.  Just like my Dad, Royal Oaks Indian Scout, that is in the next stall next to mom and I.  My Dad is the son of Fallen Ashes National Champion, Nightcap  and his Dad was the famous--L & D Scout!  Diane, did u know that my Scout has some Fabella in him from King Tiger way back?

That's very cool about King Tiger.  I'll have to do up a Falabella Blend pedigree for you.  I owe Holly several, but I've been so crazy, I haven't quite finished them.  So, I'll add another one to my list!

Your boy is certainly handsome, and they both did this little one PROUD!

I really appreciate all the info on Halter training.  Diane I would have liked to have been your foal.  I am afraid we have already made a lot of mistakes so we will use everybodys' ideas from now on.  Here is photo of him just standing in stall with halter on.  We are behind the camera very near.

Clara, just replying to your comment that you think you have made alot of mistakes with halter training , please dont think that. You are making great interaction with your foal which is great . I have a little mare who is 9 and was very much left for her first 5 years. The only interaction she had with her owners was that they would rush her into the corner of a stable to have her feet trimmed and now she suffers from major trust issues. Being that the only interaction she had was such a rushed experience for the first 5 years, its no wonder she has the issues that she does.

Once on the lead she really is a sweet mare , loves to be brushed and doted over. Its getting close enough to her to apply the halter that is the issue. Normally she will approach me and then realise at the last second how close she is and flip out. She has been like this since she was sold to the lady before me.

As you  can see everyone has different ideas regarding halter training , But we all agree that some interaction is necessary early on :)

By the way  he is very cute ( and not shy of the camera ) :)

As Ryan said, we all do things differently, so you haven't made mistakes, you just did things differently.  He looks just fine, and so handsome in his pretty halter!
