RE: What can I do with my 6 month old cob?
continue with picking the feet up, and start getting his legs in the position for the farrier.
Ask him to lead
Get him used to things being placed on his back ( ready for rugs)
when grooming do under the belly too.
If you can, wrap your arms round his belly and see if you can make them meet.
Get him used ti wheel barrows and tarpauliin.
Get him used to respect by getting him to go back when asked, move his quarters over when asked, not play up when leading.
I have found a good book called training your young horse by Richard Maxwell it has been very useful.
I have a surprise colt born in may this year that i have done a fair bit of work with. He leads well, I can open and close gates leading him and his mum on my own, has had his first Farrier trim, had his passort and vetting done ( to get him insured). He has rugs on, me leaning on him, wrap my arms around his belly, and play with his ears.
Good luck. xx
