Almost a month old. :D

Just wanted to post some new pix of Rafe. He will be a month old on the 16th. He is beginning to worry me about how big he is going to be when he grows up. ;D LOL







I was scratching his back when I took this pic.










This pic really doesn't do justice to his legs. He is not really that toed out on the front, I am posting to show how big his bones and feet are.


My own little Murphy's law. He managed to get into something and scratch his head all up.


I had sprayed him with water while I was filling the tank. It took him all of about 2 seconds to lay down and roll. His halter is still just a bit too big. ;p




His little milk teeth are coming in in a hurry too. LOL *pardon my dirty fingernails*

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/

Thanks you guys. Yeah, his body is beginning to grow into his huge ears and his big head too. LOL. I am beginning to hope that he may have mom's size with dad's confo. XX fingers crossed. Started working with him today on leading and he did okay for the most part, a little bit of stubbornness but nothing I haven't dealt with before.

I love messing with a young one but now I am wishing for a 3 or 4 year old that I could actually ride. I can only imagine the looks I'll get when I unload him off the trailer at the ranch branding in all his 16.3 hh glory. LOL

He is sure going to be a big, broad, stout, and probably tall boy.
