BREAKING THE COLT IS TRADING PROCEDURE In breaking the colt the first lesson may consist of fitting a leather or web halter. The next day the toil may be tied in the stall with its mother for a half hour or so Watching is necessary to see that it does not injure itself in any way Repeating the lesson until the colt stands quietly, he is then ready for lead-rig If no helper is available, start lending the colt with his mother Make the lesson short No progress can be made with a colt that is tired or sulky. Two lessons a day may be given In teaching the colt to lead some horsemen use the following method Tie a rope to the lelt foreleg just below the knee. A gentle pull en this rope will raise and pull forward the foot and at the same time a pull is exerted on the halter The average colt will follow m a short time The head-and-foot tie is useful m tjmg a colt, green horse, or a halter puller. This tie is made by running a halter rope through the manger hole and tying it Just below the knee or around the fetlock with a couple of half hitches. When the coll is not m motion, teach it to stand squarely on Its legs with head up. Select a spot where its Iront feet will be a little higher than its hind feet. Do not expect a colt to clarn everything in one or two lessons Aftei it walks well at the halter, teach it to trot INTERESTING FACTS OX EXTENSION ANNOUNCED In the 25 years that agricultural extension work has been conducted m Pennsylvania counties many valuable contributions have been made to the farming industry.
