Your Chincoteague Pony Foal's First Year: Feeding, Health Care, Training & More (Paperback)
You've just purchased your first Chincoteague Pony foal, or maybe you are considering raising your hand to bid at the annual Pony Penning Auction, held on Thursday of the last week of July each year on Chincoteague Island, Virginia. If you're looking for a resource to guide you on the exciting journey you have ahead - raising your wild pony foal - look no further. "Your Chincoteague Pony Foal's First Year" offers sound advice on hauling, stalls, bedding, veterinarian care, hoof care, insect control, training for basic ground manners, dealing with vices and more. Learn how to desensitize your foal so he matures into a bombproof riding pony. It will be many years until you can ride your new foal. Put in the steps during that time to teach him how to lead, back up, load on a trailer. You can even teach him some tricks, and a few are outlined in the later chapters of "Your Chincoteague Pony Foal's First Year". This is your first year guide. Let the journey begin.
