hi everyone :)

I have recently gone a bit crazy and put down a deposit on a foal. He will be my first youngster. He is currently part of a small herd and I should get him at the end of November sometime.

I am very excited but a bit anxious about what a steep learning curve it will be! Obviously I will seek help from my instructor who is used to dealing with youngsters and with other knowledgable people but I wondered if there are any books/websites people would recommend or if anyone has any words of wisdom they wish someone had told them?

Thanks!

I found Richard Maxwells From Birth to Backing very useful when I took on my weanling, that was 11 years ago now (yikes!) so he may have brought out a more up to date book. Good luck and enjoy :)
