I'll post some more pics as soon as I can!

Can I ask you folks for some tips on making sure he doesn't grow up to be an entitled and spoiled brat like some abandoned foals can be? I'm sure my folks have it pretty well under control but I'd just like to know for me personally :)

thanx everybody!


But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

Just treat him like a grown horse. If you won't let your grown horse get away with something, he shouldn't either. You should be lenient on how much to expect of him though as he is just a baby and still learning. But he needs to be aware that you are the leader and he needs to listen to you.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

I agree that just treat him like you would an adult horse. Don't let him be mouthy because that can turn in to biting. Let him know his boundaries and you should be fine.

Thank you so much guys! Sorry I've been so slow with the pics! I stayed on campus this weekend bc of a party...actually like three parties, but that's beside the point

Little Trooper is just as happy as ever. On another note, we just had another foal (future colt) born this past weekend, so hopefully Trooper will have a little buddy to play with when he gets a little older.
