Thanks! She's a wonderful horse. It has been fun raising her since she was 8 months and definitely a learning experience. I loved draft crosses so I got lucky when I found shire x paint with that little face next to the ad :P
Haha she would GLADLY accept a kiss from anyone on her little nose :)
This is Ricky Bobby... Mom is a Percheron, don't know what dad was. He's 8 months old now, just shy of 16hh and is one of the wonders of the world to the wife and I. We almost lost him last week to sand colic. We had a horrible couple of days, but the lil guy pulled through it and we're on a good road to full recovery now.
A pleasant surprise! My jaw would've dropped to the floor if that happened to me.
The breeder said she was surprised herself with Callie because one day her dam was missing somewhere in her many-acres field and the next, the dam was coming out from behind the trees and back creek with a foal at her side :)
Foals are sooo stinkin' cute. When I was a kid, the barn I went to had a yearly breeding program. Paint/QH foals that I wanted so bad but instead I got the 20 year old gelding that no one wanted :P Finally got a foal when I was in college.
