Hi guys! Some of you who have been around a while may remember Zane, my Missouri Fox Trotter/ QH cross foal. He came as surprise stowaway when I purchased his mother for trail riding. (The guy told me he didn't think she wasn't pregnant.)
It's been a wild ride for me, raising my first (and likely last) foal from birth.
He started life with lots of health issues, lots of training issues, lots of stress on me.
But we've made it to age 3, I'm riding him now, and while some rides are better than others, we've come so far! When he was born I didn't even know if he would survive and be sound enough to be a riding horse. Then he was such a wild child I didn't know if I would ever get him trained. But now I am riding him and that in itself is a miracle. I can post about his heath issues later if people are curious but I don't want to delve into that too much because I was unbiased critics of his conformation now at age 3.
So without further ado, here is Zane at 3 years of age. Let me know his strengths, weaknesses, whatever comments you may have.
Sorry the photos are at all sorts of crooked angles. We live on a hill and nothing is ever flat. I tried to get them as level as I could but it's hard to tell sometimes when you are actually taking them.
