Okay, this seems like a lame question, but I have an awful time getting fly spray on my foal. I use one that is good for foals, but hanging onto him and putting on the spray is soooo hard to do and I never get it all over him and I don't normally have help.

I suppose the obvious is, get help. But I was hoping someone has a cool technique they use. So if anyone does, please help me out.

Cj,
Where are your photo's? We dont put fly spray on our foals. When we do introduce it as a yearling they are already halter trained. We start with water in the spray bottle to get them used to the noise and the feel of the liquid.

Chris Cox and Clinton Anderson have excellent dvd series on handling foals and weanlings. They are a bit expensive but well worth the cost. Both take you from 2 week old foal to yearling. They are step by step and very informative. I strongly suggest any new foal owners to purchase a dvd series. 5 years ago I knew very little about training horses. I now have a 4 y/o gelding I hand raised and trained. I can rope a steer from either end off him. He trail rides and helps me pony the young horses around. I would say quite an accomplishment for a HUSBAND!!!!

Post some photo's of your colt CJ!

Thanks Todd. You know, I will as soon as possible. I do want a nice colt-not a difficult to handle one due to inexperience.

Okay, Okay. I'll get some pics up tomorrow, under the new foals thread, okay? I don't know why I have so much trouble with doing that!
