Tim takes us through Senior learning to lead...
Tim brings us up to date with progress with the boys. Stallion Senior has made good progress and can even handle the plastic bag on a stick treatment without much flinching
Tim commentates as he takes us through progress to date and what he's working on...
Kate and Tim's stallions were initially delivered to some nearby yards along with some other stallions. After their long journey to Northland it was fortunate that it didn't take long for them to get into the float to get to their new home. It wasn't all plain sailing but they figured it out quickly enough!
It's new and exciting and it's called the 'two stick' technique. Yup with a tea towel on one stick and a towel on the other, Tim has started a whole new taming technique. Stallion Senior has proved to be a little more afraid of the towels but this video shows what great progress he has made in under a week (footage shot on Thursday 5 May).
Stallion Junior is coming along really nicely and seems to be quite curious. He's reaching out, and Kate's right there for him. Kate suspects that this is the younger of the two stallions she and Tim are training, and that the older stallion may even be Junior's dad.
Kate Hewlett and Tim Featherstone are taking part in the Stallion Challenge and Stallion Makeover which is organised by Kaimanawa Heritage Horses.
