Ross Cooper tackles the subject of foal handling, should we handle them early or leave them be?
I have always enjoyed working with foals; it is so very rewarding to be part of their early stages of training. They are a complete canvas, with an innocence yet the mischievous quality that can never fail to make you smile. Though being as blank a canvas as a young foal is, it does put a level of responsibility on us as handlers or trainers to do them justice and to do the best by them, for them. Here, I hope I help you to do just that!
