I rescued a mini (38" high but the rescue thought he had some pony in him) about a month ago. He wasn't trusting and hated to be approached and have a halter put on him. We've made great strides in accepting the halter. He picks up his feet now without me asking. Basically when he is haltered you can do about anything to him. Has absolutely no bite or kick. Just the catching is an issue. When he's in his stall it's not hard. My question is---with a full size horse I'd be putting him in the round pen and work on "getting control of his feet". Is this the right approach for a mini--who might be part pony? I've been told it's just pony attitude.
