Congrats little Zane <3 Still waiting on a name for our little girl, but the colt I was calling Little Silver has been named Rocket lol, the mares owner's nephew or something came up with it and she liked it. I don't disagree, he is a FAST little bugger my goodness lol, he'll definitely do well on the track <3

Congrats on the cute foals everyone!

Trail horse, I'm glad your baby will be fine! He is chestnut but will go grey, you can tell by the color on his legs. If he weren't going to grey out his legs would be very pale colored. Such a cutie :)

I would LOVE for him to be a gray! I've had two other grays (his mom and an Arab) but both were already fleabit when I bought them. I would love to have a gray to see the color change take place. And besides, then he could be Zane Gray.

Thanks for your input CheyAut on the color. And thanks to everyone for putting up with my questions and worries! I am now wondering if baby is gaited. I posted a photo in the Gaited Horse section of the forum of what I think might be a gait! He does this really smooth little fast "walk" when he keeps up with his momma. But I think it might be a gait of some sort.

I hope he has a nice long dappled grey stage in which you will take several photos to share with us ;) I love the dappled stage!

Lots of babies will do a little gait vs real trot when they're young, but yours is part gaited horse, right? So very well could be truely gaiting vs baby movement! :)

Yes, his momma is a Fox Trotter, but daddy is a QH. So we'll see what I end up with! I wouldn't love him a bit less if he trotted, but gaiting would be icing on the cake.

I love dapple grays too. If he does gray out, I will have pictures of him at every stage along the way!

Basically, I just want him to be a sound, happy, well trained horse. I am curious about things like color and gait, but in the long run they don't matter at all. The first three are the most important.

Trailhorse rider - I'm glad your baby is going to be fine. It can be really scary when things don't go quite as planned.

Rain has been a little toot the last few days. Guess she's feeling her oats? She has been displaying a LOT of bad attitude toward her Momma and her Auntie Mystie. She will suddenly run at them biting and kicking, with her ears pinned back flat. She's biting them hard enough to leave marks, but they pretty much just ignore her, so I guess it's just baby hijinx or some sort of phase she's going through?

She's really growing and filling out (momma's gaining weight very slowly):

She's also discovered the joys of playing in the water trough - though she sometimes forgets that she can't breathe underwater!:

And when I said bad attitude, I mean BAD ATTITUDE! Fortunately, it hasn't been directed at us...yet:

This was snapped just before she launched herself at her Auntie Mystie...

Vicious! But what a doll! She looks like she's going to have a pretty head after all :)

LOL!

I really get a kick out of her attitude, as long as it's not directed at you. :P She's going to be a sassy girl. That last picture is totally adorable.
