When should a foal begin its halter breaking?

EDIT BY RUBYRACER: The answer for the Howrse Riding Test #9 is The First Month.At the age of two I believe.You should put a halter on a foal as soon as possible for short periods of time to get it used to it. Once it seems comfortable with the halter, you should begin leading it on a lead line next to the mother when you take them out to pasture or bring them inside. Just remember, foals are very impressionable, so be very careful not to scare them, and make sure it is a pleasant experience.

When should a foal begin halter breaking?

The day it's born. Seriously, halter breaking is a lot easier when your foal is already used to humans. As soon as it's born, rub it all over, touch it everywhere and talk to it. This will "imprint" the foal and make handling it much easier. Every day, go play with the foal, put the halter on and off, touch it all over, get it used to the lead rope, etc. Then just try light tugging on the halter, as soon as it moves even one step forwards, release the pressure to reward the foal. Then ask for 2 steps, 3, etc and soon you will have a nicely halter-broke filly or colt :)
