    almost 10 months and still changing and growing

    Well he is definitely starting to lose that baby look and everyone says he is growing although I can't really tell. It has been two months since I brought him home. Does he look like he has changed much to you?

    He does look like he's grown and he's starting to look like his sire. I think reining or hunter for this boy. You'll have to see as he grows up, but I think he'll do really well for you.

    Robin boy was a popular lineage for paints here. You have a nice looking colt. He looks like he should grow to a nice sized horse, and be able to do what ever you choose.

    Thanks. He has a double dose of his sire side of pepsi poco. Is that a good thing that the same sire was used on dam and sire on his sire Side. I was wondering and hoping he would take after his father more. I love his head and his build but like mom's size. Hope he doesn't get his mother's withers. What do you think?

    I guess it is called line breeding. For what reason would someone do it? To keep the lines pure? Wouldn't it be inbreeding and be considered bad?

    Inbreeding enhances faults and also enhances strong points. It can also make a recessive gene appear that you may not want. It has a bad rep because a lot of people don't understand it/misuse it. If done by a knowledgeable breeder with quality animals inbreeding can be a very valuable tool and sometimes the only way to preserve bloodlines. You also want to outcross from time to time so as to minimize the negative effects. It is much more common than it seems and a lot of lines are only there primarily due to inbreeding. Linebreeding is breeding back to a specific individual to preserve that line. It is similar but not so closely involved as inbreeding.

    Link won't work for me.

    officially a yearling

    I looked all over the internet to find pictures of horses that show them grow from weanling to adulthood and couldn't find hardly any. So I thought I would keep updating this thread and we can watch the conformation changes. I hoping this one will turn out ok. Here are some of him as a yearling. I have some front rear photos and I will have to find them....he isn't standing very square in them but you can see that he is still slightly knock kneed but it has improved a little.
