    OP, your baby is stunning! I bet he's a real sweetheart! That face of his is just too cute!
    He's awesome! I'm glad you think so too!
    Thanks!

    That baby's look will change in another year or two. That horse pictured is awfully butt high , terrible way to breed them for a fad.

    Baby horses change thier looks. They go through growth spurts and can get to a gangly stage and look rather ugg and then grow some more and get real pretty. The looks change with more muscling from training, if thin or fat..
    I don't have any pics of my horses from baby to adult. I will try to find some.

    Do you think his hind legs will improve by the time he grows up?

    I like the low set on those hocks, but that red horse is two horses put together as one. The back end and bone he's carrying is MUCH heavier than the light bone and upright-ness in the front end.
