Thank you, NorthernHorse! I'm tickled pink over him already and he hasn't unfolded yet! This guy is truly something else! I'd love to see him shown as well, if I could find the right person! Hopefully he'll have his chance to shine!
I've notified the stallion owner and he said wait a couple weeks for him to unfold and we will see something special :). I'd like to repeat this cross eventually in hopes of a filly. Not sure about breeding this year. Next year I'm planning on catching a special on HF Mobster and breeding Josie to that sexy beast next :). Riley will most likely be sold to a show home as I really think he could make a stallion prospect for someone and I'm not in the business of keeping geldings anyways. Really, REALLY excited to hopefully place him in some capable hands. Posted via Mobile Device
Well, things have been so busy lately, I haven't uploaded any new pics! Riley is definitely a growing boy! The pics just don't do this boy any justice as to how stout he is already! He is very wide across his shoulders and bum, I just can't wait until he gets older and see what he becomes! I've decided to definitely sell him, but I have no idea how to market him to get him in a definite show home and am also going to wait until he is at least a month old before trying, lol.
Anyways, the first 4 pics are actual camera shots at 8 days old. He had his first tie session on Easter and boy, he wasn't happy! He was tied a few feet away from his dam and I went and sat in my chair just a few feet away as well. He just couldn't stand it being alone, lol. He has been leading like a broke horse since he was 5 days old :).
The next pic is Riley at 10 days old! I didn't get to take any pics til dark, lol. The last is from today, at 11 days old! He went into the tank for the first time. Love this guy!
