Well, I measured him today. He is just over 13 hands. Estimating his full height with the coronary band to knee technique, he should end up at 16 hh.

Thanks. It is one of the positive outcomes from the Bill Kiefer rescue. So many horses and foals had to die because him.

And he just violated his probation by buying another horse. That horses, last I heard, was unaccounted for and the authorities do not know where it is.

Eva, Rocco's mom, was a rescue from there. We didn't know she was pregnant at first. Rocco was born in our care about 1/2 year after the horses were rescued.

Many of the foals born after the rescue didn't make it due to lacking food for the mares and low nutrition during pregnancy.

When we realized that Eva was pregnant, we were worried about her having him before spring came and if he would even be developed enough to survive. Luckily for Rocco, she wasn't bred until later in the year so he had enough time to develop.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!
