That's a very nice filly!! Congrats on bringing her home .

I guess I could add a couple new-ish ones of my little BAB. She'll be 2 somewhere around the first of April and she finally broke 14 hands tall LOL. Even though she's still pretty massively downhill, she's actually starting to look like a real horse instead of a poorly drawn cartoon LOL.





And just for grins and giggles that day, I decided to "torture" her and introduce her to wearing a saddle and bit for a few minutes.


She was not impressed LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks Smrobs! I bought her with the intention of doing a bit of everything with her, but manily dressage, once she is broke in (which will be done at the end of this year). I can't wait until she matures and fills out. Love your Talon, have been with the journey since you first spotted her and love to see the updates, she's a special one Poorly cartoon, eh? Well atleast she has 'character' . Yep... bad joke I know - it's that kind of night

Here is my newest badass brown. She is a pony around 11 hands that came to me unbroke. She is a project horse that I am going to train to drive and then resell. We are calling her Snooker and she is taking the "badass" part a little too seriously. LOL.







First day at our place:

I've been told I can join the BAB club too apparently. I'm still torn on whether or not he's bay or brown but you people on here say he's a brown so here he is in all his glory...Nick!

Nick is my sister's newish gelding. Registered name Got Gucci. He arrived at our barn in late August/early September as kind of a spur of the moment thing. He had like two choices: Auction house or our house and so we said kind of half heartedly we'd give him a shot and boom. Now we have a giant puppy dog living in our pasture who is VERY into everyone's business lol












He's so modest - we were trying to take a picture of the two of us and he went and hogged the whole thing.


He really likes cameras.

Cat, are you sure she's brown? It could just be the pictures, but she looks like she is missing the soft points that Browns typically have on the muzzle, flanks, etc. And FSR, that gelding is super cute! Love the close-ups.

Here is a picture of my wooly BAB. She is also 325ish days in foal in this photo which is why she looks so huge.

Glynnis, I love the "Hello" on the fence with your BAB's head next to it. Too cute :)

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Not sure what else she could be? I guess I assumed brown because she is "almost" bay, but not really. Dark chestnut then?

Cat, definitely not chestnut. Black base there for sure. Either brown, fading black, or maybe smoky black. I'd wait until she's shed off to venture a guess for sure, but you can call her a BAB...especially if she fits the BA part .

I really doubt smokey black. Guinness is smokey black and her coloring it totally different. She reminds me of a rich chocolate I color and has more red than you normally see in smokey or even fading black. I've really never seen a color quite like her. She was being called bay w/ her dark legs and mane/tail, so maybe she is. I'll get pics of her summer coat when it comes in and see what everyone thinks at that time.

There is no standard colour for smoky black to be honest. Some are jet black and not even fading. Others are really light.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
