thanks everyone!
I love the new pic of Beau, is he going to grey out?

I've never had her try to race, like i said, she's not a fan of cantering.... she LOVES to trot! She would have made a perfect trotting racer,lol. If she gets excited she trots really fast! Do any of your TB's love to trot?

I've even ridden her on a quarter-mile racetrack (right-way though) and she just walked calmly the whole time =]
As for feeding i can't really control the hay, she's boarded and they either throw in a big hay bale or feed chunks of hay two times a day.... she always loses weight with the latter, but not much. She seems to be good though now, she's in the retirement pasture b/c the mares beat her up =(

She's got sorta wide hooves that always have cracks in them... is there something i can do to help this? She's barefoot and sound, but i really don't like the cracks!

thanks again for all your help!

Yea...he's going to gray out. He is a shade lighter than he was last year....since he's so dark gray, it'll take him a while to turn white. But he is dappling more already.

He never trots. Really. He'll go from standing still to a full gallop... he canters once in a while, and it is quite beautiful....but galloping is his favorite speed.

see video:

TBs are such graceful movers. They remind me of ballet dancers!!

awww he's so adorable!
i love how he runs laps, and doesn't even look tired when he's done! He also gave himself a bath, lol ! He looks so happy =]

The mare also has weird habits, such as eating with her head sideways... she's completely healthy, it's just a quirk!
