Guide to Halter Training - stage 1: The Bucket
People talk about how children change your life for the better. One of the unexpected benefits for me of motherhood has been beach buckets. Beach buckets are the business for halter training. As soon as they are weaned (the pacas not the children), I start putting paca nuts out for them in these buckets. Luckily we have ten of them. It can take a few days for the weaners to get a taste for the nuts. When they do, by eating out of a bucket they are getting used to putting their head into a confined space not dissimilar to a halter.
