Yearlings of 2012

Soooo since we had a "Foals of 2012" thread, I thought a "Yearlings of 2012" thread would be a great idea. Everyone can share their cute(and not so cute) growth spurts, compare training/growth, and just oggle over the cute(and not so cute) yearlings!

Here's just a couple pictures of Henny to start off with. :) He's doing great so far. Currently 12.2 at the withers and growing like a weed at 10 months old. He's a quick learner and I get compliments on his disposition/training/cuteness every where I go. Show off your yearlings!

Here is Lily, my 14hh 10 month old happy baby. She is turning out to be very playful and mischievous, but solid. Her favorite things to do are go for a trail walk, eat alfalfa, and test my patience.

I think Lily is training to be a cow horse!

Hey, Talyn resembles those remarks LOL.

Anyway, she's about 11 months old, was completely feral until about a month ago when she was captured, weaned, and handled all in one fell swoop.

Currently standing 12.2 (13.1 at the hip) and string tests to 15.2. Parents were both around the 15 hand mark by my best guess.

Anyway, in the last month, she has learned to let me walk up and halter her in the pen, she'll let me pick up all 4 feet and do anything with them, she's had a bareback pad cinched down on her, she leads like a champ through deep snow, deep water, and past scary vehicles and dogs. She's still working on consistently giving any part of her body to pressure, but we're getting there.

I'll start off with a couple of her more flattering photos.

And one of her "pity me, I am a most unfortunate looking creature" pictures LOL.

I love the name Talyn. It's so fierce and exotic, it matches her very well! She's so stinkin' cute.

Poor Talyn, that last picture of her just slightly dampened my 'TALYNTHEBEAUTIFULWILDPONIEEE' image of her. Not much though, she's still freaking gorgeous <3

Most of our yearling colts are out in the pasture being babies right now, so I don't have any recent pictures of them. Peppin is 19 months old now and 15.3hh at the hip (I think? Can't remember), our little Foundation QH colt Reu is 15 months old and 13hh at the hip, and I'm not sure about Gremlin. He's actually 27 months old right now and should be coming in to be broken lightly later this summer or fall though so I'll try getting pictures then ;)

We do have two here on the farm with us still though!

Mary Jane- 11 month old Miniature Mule filly, 24" tall. (Honor, my five month old, is already as tall as her xD)

She's...ah...rather grumpy. And bossy xD

Poor little gal didn't quite make the showing cut, as she has some pretty crooked legs. The vet suspects it was from how she was positioned in her dam, since both her dam and sire have good conformation and have thrown some very nice foals.

And then there is Kenzie!!! She's a rather unfortunate little rescue that we're fostering but she's the sweetest thing. She is 16 months old and was 12.2 at the wither last time I checked and not butt high () but string tests to be 15.2 if we can get her past this nutritional hump. She's still underweight and shedding her icky unhealthy coat, so please excuse her appearance.

Yes...I really am that short.

Not sure if these two count since they're LATE 2012 foals and are actually weanlings, but we'll pretend they are xD Jet (black) has already left for his new showing home and Honor (the dun) is for sale. Her last prospective home didn't quite work out so she's hanging out with me for a little longer while she waits for a new home. Not that I mind! Jet is 6 1/2 months old, Honor is almost 6 months.

My little cowpony, Honor. She's 9 months old now and 13.1. Sorry for the halter line, this was right after a lesson and the winter fluff got flattened, not a very cute look.


In her true form, telling off Merit. I've no doubt this is my next alpha mare.

Kenzie and Honor are so cute! I love Honor's fluff face bahaha.

Holy big booty! And I thought Henny had a big butt. He's got nothing on Honor! ;)
