WIPUP*^'* 4 *■> . .- ••.* k TUB YOUNG HORSE. She young horse, like the boy, must have training for good habits If he .Is to be of good service in the future. A horseman, Mr. Charles Mclntyre, talking on the subject of training young horses, says that a halter must be used when first handling them j that they-can't break, as It is hard ('■ . •tffcf afterward to cure them of it. The proper time to begin halter breaking is when the foal is a few days old, and only a good strong baiter should be used. If the youngefcer succeeds in breaking the halter even a time or two when first hat tered, the nablt will be formed and may last a lifetime. The breaking of halters and bridles soon becomes expensive. The halter breaking horse can never be left while hitched to a rig, and when not hitched to a rig, the owner never knows where he is to find the animal. By using a strong haltpr, one that can not be broken, no horse need ever form this very disagreeable habit. The second thing whic...
