Lets talk about foals :) Appaloosa foal

Meet Flair. Thoughts? Also. What do others like to see at such a young age?

Flair is stunning!

for such a little one, health and curiosity (to an extent) would be the ideals imo..

I think the safest thing to say about little ones is awww cute, and pretty color.

I have enough trouble judging big guys, but foals are really hard, being that they are all legs and bendy soft joints. This little guy currently looks all head and legs, at the expense of his neck, but who knows what he will mature to. I'm still waiting for Angel to produce a decent neck, I'm sure she will at some time.

What do I look for, well I've never had to select a baby at that age, and having raised a few foals at home here I hope I never have to, because they go through so many stages.

Conformationally....I just hope he grows into his head and sprouts a neck.
Am I seeing a hernia or is that an optical illusion with the spots?

at such a young age, some thing I would look for is him being moved to my back yard. :P

Trying hard to focus! Man those legs are looong! Such a cutie!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
