    I think you have a real diamond in the rough, in a year of good feed, foot care and getting out to use his body I bet he will look AWESOME! 3-5 are my favorite developmental years in young horses :) If he were mine I would also geld him, some much more involved with keeping and training a stallion.

    Hope you keep us posted!

    Have you got him home yet? Any news?

    He looks like a cute little guy but I also don't see anything that screams "leave me a stud". I think if he were mine, the first stop would be the vet to have him gelded. Since he would be knocked out for that, I would trim his feet while he was down and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. The vet could also likely give you an idea about his knees/hocks while he was there so it would actually be 3 birds with one stone.

    My vet giving soundness advice? :laugh: you over estimate near by vets!

    Update. He should be here today! And I have decided to take in another, so actually two boys will be here today.
    I did go over to the farm last week and trim his hooves. Without sedation. He appears to be headed for a growth spurt so I did not take to much off from his toes, not to meantion I think this is something that should be done slowly. He is more comfortable and on the right track now.

    His owner has also agreed on the gelding, he will be gelded next month.

    Will update when he arrives. I am excited to start working with him!

    So glad you are doing this for them! The first boy is a real cutie-glad he's going to be gelded-fighting the hormones along w/everything else is a big job. Is the "second project" from the same barn? Is there a sore at his elbow or just "dirt"? You have a lot of work w/that mane, but it sure is long! Can you tell us more about him?

    Want details on project #2! You have got to take before and after photos of this one for sure :) Happy New Years!!

    Wow, I can't wait to see them blossom under your care! Post new pics when you can.

    Do they have names?

    I think I am in love with that dirty thing called a horse in the second picture :) Please post some afters of them both!!! I especially need after pics of horse#2 though, so I can get over this insane "OMG I love him" thing that just flashed through my head LOL
