    He's turning out lovely! Are you going to keep showing him in-hand or are you planning to move into things like hunter under saddle?

    I hope my yearling turns out as good :)

    great reply, she says then adds


    If you really want to keep it up and mess free this is a great way to put up a tail, I keep my guys up all winter, and did have one up through the summer for shows. The only problem I had was with the foals, they loved chew stings
    Back on topic, Walter has certainly grown up and is a handsome young man, who would of thought that the little hairy guy would grow up so handsome?

    What are the future plans for him? I agree with the concern over straight pasterns, great for halter, not so much for a riding horse.

    Well, we tried showing HUS lol, I made a thread about the show. He looks wonderful HUS in training! I think he would love to do hunter over fences, but I will talk to my vet before any training for that starts. It wouldn't be until he was 4 or 5 anyways. He is a little mentally immature in some ways, so I don't want to melt his baby brain. First/Last Show of the Season

    Future plans.. I would like to try WP, HUS, HOF, Trail, Showmanship. I have been watching App Worlds, and I would like to try a hunter hack class at some point haha. Two fences and then a rail class.

    I show him in-hand, as I can do that. I ride him here and there, but I need to get lessons. I am going to start lessons this winter out here, and take them until I move back home, and can get serious with Walter.

    GH I've looked at wrapping tails like that. I will have to see if my mom wants to give it a go this winter.

    I don't see a massive difference bar being turned out well for his show :) He does look as if his back as leveled up a bit which is always good :) One thing I did notice is his coat colour changed a good bit now I don't know whether that was supposed to happen or whether he is lacking copper but eiither way it still looks good. Good look with him in the future :)

    Rhosroyalvelvet he looks like he's roaning out, I expect he'll be mostly white in a few years with his butt spots still in tact.

    I just went and checked out your other thread, he looked wonderful!

    I never was into showing, but I board my appy's at a breeding barn and she shows hers and it's been getting me itching to try some.

    I want to get some points on my Appy!

    I want to show my Appy next year in Most Colorful. He's as loud as can be, but we'll see how he's growing. This year he's been in yearling uglies since Jan.

    My 3 year old (will be 4) I want to put in some open halter/in hand and maybe a w/t show.

    Hope you post a pic of Walter next year. I always like seeing how the babies fill out and grow.

    Bad lighting in the arena, but his coat is vibrant as ever. He is roaning, minus a patch on his side, which the genetic people have deemed a somatic mutation.

    I had never showed either, but I love it. A little stressful, and long days, but worth it I think. So long as the horses aren't getting crabby and soured. The vet deemed Walter ADD. He loves shows, gawking at everything and going for walks through the stables and outside. Your yearling would be awesome at most colourful I bet!

    I hope his pasterns don't disable him in anyway. I know he;s in no way perfectly put together, but I would like him to stand up. He likes jumping things when free playing in the arena. Pylons, poles, if small jumps were previously up, he'll jump them. As said, vet will be consulted before anything like jumping starts under saddle. :)
