    Thanks FGRanch, I think he's absolutely stunning of course - but then I'm his 'Uzzer Muzzer' so I would

    His mother is around 15.3hh and his Dad is about 15.1hh but throws really big so I am picking that he might reach 16hh. I was hoping for around 15.3 - I'm not getting any younger and my legs don't seem to be getting any longer

    And since I just can't post anything without a pic here's another from yesterday's shoot...

    Zephyr's great escape??!!

    IMG_6181.jpg
    Got up this morning to find Zephyr CALMLY grazing all by himself in the paddock behind the house ignoring his frantic ‘Muzzerr’ and ‘Le Uncle’ who were stomping about the fence line.
    He strolled up to me when I went out to the paddock and led back with me as cool as a cucumber.
    NO IDEA how he got there – he can only have jumped the fence???!!! If he did that he’s destined to be world class show jumper!
    Not a scratch on him either. He is one very strange foal – he was grazing unconcernedly quite wee way away from Merlot and Persil.
    Weird….or what……
    Anyone else have a foal who at around 2 months could clear a 4ft something fence? Is it possible?

    Wow! I don't know if they can jump that high at that age but maybe he did. He has such an innocent look on his face. And I love his cute little forelock.

    I've checked every inch of the fence - he can't get under it as it is sheep net. No way to get through it and noone could have come in here in the night and let him out without us knowing (3 loud mouthed dogs).
    The ONLY way I can see is that he jumped! Or maybe...he levitated. LOL
    Quick someone get William Shatner in....

    Holy crap!!!! That is FREAKY!!!! He mustve jumped?????? Man, he is one talented young man!!! You are lucky he has such a calm disposition...well...not lucky...I believe he does thanks to you...you have spent so much time with him that he saw nothing wrong with jumping on over and waiting til you got up!!!

    I have an escape artist also she's a 4 month old Icelandic who jumps out of her pen quite often it's about a 4 foot fence and she's very small about 1/2 the size of of your little guy. She has a uncle who can clear 5 1/2 foot panels at a stand still, just hops over like a deer. It seems like between 2 and 4 months months they decide exploring is fun.

    He could have reared and had enough momentum on the way down to flip himself over the fence. I've seen quite a few foals get over fences that way. I don't know how tall he is if he rears or if he does but that might be it if he doesn't end up over there again. If it happens again you should start training for stadium jumping because you've got a natural on your hands.
