    You're to be commended, Merlot - you're doing exceptionally well at giving this guy a great education.

    Thanks Chevaux, I appreciate that but it has to be said that he is my only foal so I can put the time into him - AND he is just SO easy to work (play) with - I am very lucky
    He is going to his first show next weekend hence the outing this weekend LOL
    I'm not really in to showing however I think it is good for the foals to be out and about with their mother - makes for easy training later on down the track!
    Cheers

    *sigh* I've been worrying about him for a while now...

    He's a registered Quarter horse. His mama is 15.2 hh and his previous owner didn't know how tall dad is. But he's been string testing at 16 hh... I'm beginning to wonder if I am doing the test the right way. *shrug* We're making sure he has a proper diet and he looks really good. He's just not shooting up like I'd hoped. :/

    I wouldn't panic Lwhisperer - horses grow at different rates. Also quite honestly I had hoped for a smaller horse - they are usually much more balanced (naturally) when it comes to steep hill work. That's why I love Persil so much and he is only 14.3hh.
    Your little guy (is it Rebel?) Looks gorgeous.

    Aww, thanks! I have to load a new picture of him... Those are all from a couple months ago. We've moved to where it's warmer, and he's shedding his coat and has started a noticeable growth spurt. So maybe he'll jump up to where we want him. I'm really a fan of the taller horses. My Caly is 15.3 hh and my mare before her was 16.2 hh! They're so hard for my 5'3" self to get up onto, but once I'm there I really prefer it. And he's going to eventually be hubby's riding horse, and hubby is 6'2". He's a muscley guy, so I'm sure he could carry him regardless of height. But he'd just be more comfortable if he hit at least 15hh.

    Sorry to hijack your beautiful boy's thread! I always love reading Zephyr's updates! He is quite the phenomenal horse. So glad he did well for you on your trip today!

    I am loving his personality! I always read the updates and it's fun to realize how well a horse lover can calculate a horses personality and personify it, especially when they're cooky goofballs :) like my mare Hunny, oh gosh she is such a blonde-incredibly smart mare that has the attentiveness of a hunting dog and the heart of lover, but goodness sakes is she a goofball blonde some days. Makes me shake my head, but according to nearly everyone she is my perfect match since we have identical personalities lol it's kind of hard not to love something that you can relate to almost perfectly isn't it? We're even both blondes! It's a match made in heaven.

    I dunno Merlot. He seems to be on the same track as Charlie And he topped out at 16.3....out of a 14hh mare lol I think Zephyr is going to be one big strappin boy.
