    Thanks! Haha I think the breeder I got him from has one of his last colts for sale. She used him as a stallion for a 6 years before she gelded him and I got a hold of him. I'd say Claymore definitely threw his colors! Here's the pic of his colt, out of a gray Percheron mare:

    I have a percheron/thoroughbred yearling colt. He's a year and 5 months, and stands about 15.3hh right now. He's going to be a big boy :) he's not overly drafty so Im hoping to show him hunter.

    He's a light cross. You should have no problem with hunters if he stays that thin. He's gorg!

    Ella-your boy looks wonderful! He is going to be big! My perch/TB colt was 14.3 at 11 mos. And now at 5 he's about 18 hds!

    Halo-Captain is wonderful! What did he do before he came to you? Bet the ground shakes when he moves :)

    Oh that would be amazing! Im really hoping for 17hh. Right now he's on a feed specially formulated for growing horses to help the development of bones, hooves, and help their digestive tract. Its an easy digested food. Juvenille (sp?) by evolution. He can stay on it till he's 3 and its done wonders for him so far so I think Ill keep him on it till then :) When did you break your guy?

    Yeah, we're pretty amazed at how big Cody has gotten! I've heard he could continue to grow until he's 7 but he's looking pretty mature to me, although he rarely went through an awkward phase. I started him doing ground work and we ponied him on trail rides a lot. Then when he was 2, we saddled him up and would pony him and once in a while after 2 1/2 put one of my daughters (50-70 lbs) up on him (it was never a big deal having a rider on him) and finally when he turned 3, I got on and would walk him around some. At 3 1/2 I started riding him on short trail rides and gradually increased to trotting. We didn't canter until he turned 5 and started jumping him a little recently. He's still pretty green when it comes to arena work but he's exceptional on the trail, he's been everywhere but the ocean!

    I fed him Triple Crown Jr and he did very well on that, didn't want him to grow too fast and end up with joint problems.

    Keep us updated on your guy's growth! With Cody, I did the height predictor of measuring from the dent in the front of the knee to the coronet band. That length in inches is supposed to be the equivalent of hands in the mature horse. Cody measured 18" and is basically 18 hands. I think you do it at 2 yrs. Old.
