My friend is getting a weanling and is wondering what is the best feed for a weanling, how much to feed, the best hay, and any tips for Halter Showing a weanling. Filly is 4 months old I think.

It depends on the breed for halter tips.

She should ask what the filly was eating before and change SLOWLY only if necessary.

We add corn oil for a nice hair coat (start very small and increase to about 1 - 2 Tblsp - depending on the size of the filly. We also give all our horses a vit/min supplement appropriate for the size and age.

We use Mare and Foal blend until the foal is 1 year old.

Good luck - it is fun to show

I can't help with halter tips for a QH..except to say that no matter ow much training you do at home, one yu get to the show, you will have a rodeo!

Good luck and if you do show, and you have to ship, I would suggest probiotics about 3 days prior to shipping!

Good luck to you!

In my training experiance of my QH foals (I've not had any fillies unfortunaly only colts) Have an easy hand and start them out just playing around 15-20 mins a day until they get good at just leading. NEVER let them wlk in front of or behind you, Always keep them at your shoulder even during the first stages because the walking in front of and behind are hard habbits to break. After she is leading good start her on trotting next to you, When that is established (most smart/willing foals will catch on in 2 or 3 days) start working on your left and right pivot but dont only work the front end or back work both so that you control her feet, get her pivoting on her hind end (left and right) first and work on pivoting the front end 2nd. You can enter mix these manuvers. Make sure during everything that you back her one or 2 steps every so often that way she looks at backing as a reward. If nessicary, I use a pig bat during trainng to tap them forward if they have been halter broke with a butt rope this makes things ALOT simpler for you and her both. Also make sure (for when she is being worked and for yearling lounge line) you start her on walking and trotting small circles around you, again, the "crop" comes in handy at this time. Do notuse the whip for punishment only for a smal incintive to move forward, back, and to the side. Just taps will do you shouldn't have to actually use it at all. I will post a video soon showing how to go about all of this if you think it would be simpler to watch then train.

Thanks, I'll let my friend know. I don't think he plans to go to any big shows, just local so he shouldn't have to ship but I'll tell him just in case.

Thanks again for all the tips!!!

If the wether is good I'll get them tomorrow. My colt is pretty much finished all I have left is finishing him on setting up and being "square" so he will be a prime example.I will also be taking videos soon of my yearling QH filly whom I purchased and she is very under schooled for her age so those videos will be more of an examle on training yongsters. I am no professional but all of my methods are 100% safe effective and gentil on the horses. I would greatly appreciate any input on stuff that anyone thinks should be done differently, I have been training for almost 13 years but I am ALWAYS open to try new things and learn more from other people. Sorry for any typos my keyboard isn't wanting to work right
