My yearling flaxen colt :)

Hi there! This is Charlie, he just turned 1 on June 6th :)

He was in pretty bad shape when I got him at 6 months for $100, very nervous and scared of everything, worm colic, etc....

Still working on worm problems and is being dewormed every 6 weeks but anyways heres my baby after 6 months :) he is my first horse so i think he is called a flaxen? He now comes when called, stands for farrier, but he still wont have anything to do with a water hose unless he is drinking from is lol

I was having a hard time getting him to stand still....

Sorrel with flaxen mane and tail? That's all I've ever heard never heard one just being called flaxen but I could be wrong. He looks very nice you have done a great job with him. He looks happy:)

Thanks!!! That last picture his coat is still shedding out a bit, he has become quite a bit darker/redder in the summertime or maybe just from the better feed and deworming? We have become so bonded and i love him to death :)

He would be called sorrel/chestnut with flaxen mane/tail...do you by chance know what breed/breeds they classified him as? Hes a handsome boy. Keep working with him and it will pay off for you in the end!!

Thanks!! I dont know much about him, his previous owners seemed in a rush to get rid of him and my boyfriend who knew nothing about horses is the one who picked him up... They only said he is a Quarter Horse but my farrier said his eyes look to have some appolossa in him. I plan on sending in some hairs for a background check (i just learned you can do this?) lol
