Lesson

Welcome!

Here we go:

This course has been segmented into a few different sections.

Preperation

Foaling

Imprinting

Early Learning

Weaning

Weanlings/Yearlings

Over the next few weeks, we will drip-feed content, provide exercises to practice, and LIVE Q&A’s to check in with your learning. This course is a self-guided journey with new content added almost daily. These videos are short as they focus on the principle, which is the key here. Many people have “rules” around the foaling process and foal handling, yet this is nature in its finest form, at one of her most vulnerable times. This conversation with your mare and foal will be dynamic, causing you to grow as a horseman. My good friend Doug Jordan says, “Feel is a sensitivity to the partnership.” Feel is exactly what you’re going to learn in this course. You’ll be approaching a newborn, creating rapport, applying a steady feel for the first time, and so much more.

Are you ready?

    Ready! Perfect timing for me! Our 3rd mustang arrived here from the wild, had rough trip across country. Only a 2 year old mare herself, she had a beautiful filly only 2 weeks after arriving here on the coldest night of the year, below zero in New York. We are not yet able to handle the mother, but the baby (almost 2 months old now) is very friendly and independent. Fortunately the mother lets us work with the baby with no issues at all. We’ve never had a foal and really want to learn as much as we can to give her a great start!

    Very excited. Our first foal ever is due sometime this week. I’m soaking up all the information I can to make this the best experience for us, mom and baby!
