I have very little experience handling colts, but I do have some. It's kind of scary just how "programmable" they are. Everything you do, is teaching them something. After a decade of working with everyone else's poor decisions training wise, I have a lot of opinions just exactly how I would start a colt. In other words, if I were in your shoes, I'd have a long and detailed list of precisely how the colt were to be handled.
I do not adhere to anyone particular trainer or training philosophy, but if you haven't watched Clinton Anderson's fundamentals and colt starting DVD's, I can't recommend them strongly enough. They are very well done.
