*giggles*

Shay-la will kill you. That's about as big as it looks like Eve is GETTING! She's almost 4 years old now, and stopped dead at 15.2hh! I'm sure Shay-la will consider a trade, Eve is turning into a pretty agile little cow pony in a Western saddle!

He's absolutely gorgeous, I can't wait to see him full grown! How tall is his dam?

LOL, You guys will have to fight me for him. I already have plans that if he is too mellow and slow for me, I might give him to my niece. She's gonna need a nice kid-pony in a few years. MM, I think Bess is around 17.2, maybe just a touch smaller. I am really hoping that he will pull an Eve and stop soon. He has only grown like 2 inches since April so I can always hope I guess .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He is just too cute! What a big boy! Good thing he has you as his momma...some inexperienced person would take him for a fully grown QH and hurt his big old bones!

Yeah, I have been told "He's gonna be huge, you need to get started riding him now." I was like NOPE. I'm gonna wait until he's at least 2 before I even introduce the saddle. Plus, I'm gonna have to teach him to stand beside a stool for mounting before I start riding him because it's hard to deal with those greenies that walk off with you hanging off their side. It sucks having to scale the side of a green horse like that. Yeah, I want to ride him so bad I can't hardly stand it, but I do want to be able to ride him for more than a few years before he is broke down :roll:.

Pony...giggle.

You have to post pictures of her riding him if she gets him! That would the cutest thing ever!

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard and it drives me nuts how people have this ridiculous misconception that if you don't jump on a Draft when they're a year old, they'll somehow get "too big to train". Warmbloods can hit over 18hh, do we do the same with them? And they probably have a MUCH more powerful buck!

Wow he really reminds me of my horse he is 16 now but i had him when he was 10mths old and he was about 15hh then! I didn't realise at the time but this didn't bode well for my hope for a 16.2hh and he is about 17.2hh but is really a gentle giant. Only problem .... i can't get on from the floor.

Yeah it's hard to get on from the ground and a problem with low limbs and leanning trees but it sure comes in handy when you are crossing deep water.
