Imprinting the Newborn Foal

What if there were a way to practically ensure your newborn foal would be manageable and easy to train later in his life, and it would take about two hours on the day he was born? Well, this is the promise made by Dr. RM Miller if you follow his imprinting plan. My personal experiences with other folks' imprinted foals has not been that encouraging;I find many are poorly-trained to lead and a bit aggressive. This is not an indication of the lack of worth of imprinting, just that it is not the final word. Foals still need to learn to lead without resistance. Just as important is that the foal learns early on that he always stands below humans in the herd dominance issue. Dr Miller has added a few lessons to the initial imprinting process that he says will address these issues, making later training a breeze.
