the Suckling Foal to Tie" for details)
Photos taken at 6 weeks of age
Sherlock's halter is snapped onto the "soft tie" rope, a 20 foot rope that runs through the inner tube to the end of the rope I am holding in my hand.
Giving Sherlock the time to become familiar with what tying is all about: the tie rail, the ropes, his restriction and his inability to get to his dam. Sassy and I just hang out for about five minutes until I feel he has "tested the waters".
I've removed the long rope and snapped Sherlock to a lead rope that is tied to an inner tube around a stout post. He's walking around a little bit learning his boundaries.
After a few minutes, he stands tied like a trooper.
