  All of the foals raised at Bluestem Stables have had imprint training and lots of hands on attention in their growing years. In their first week of life an extra amount of attention is given to them. Their feet are handled, a halter is put on within the first hour of life, they are rubbed all over from their ears to their hocks, they are lead and they are loved. During their first few years they are often lead around and desensitized to many things. This includes plastic bags, scary farm equipment, clippers and horse trailers. They learn to give to pressure, move away from pressure and how to tie. Even if it is a rushed day they are given a bit of attention during feeding. This may include a quick pat and a hello or a brushing in the pasture. As they age, more and more ground work is done with them. They have learned signals, have had time in a round pen, lounge, wear a saddle and bridle and have done some work. Because of this attention in their growing years, Bluestem foals love people. They love attention and want to work. They will follow you around a pasture like puppy dogs and come when they are called. This foundational training and care will lead to horses that are easier to train and have a love of people.
