I LOVE his coloring by the way ... and Merlin sounds perfect!
The breeder does a really good job working with them from the start. They have that trailer in the pasture where the babies can explore and play around it on their own, so they're not scared of it at all. He'll be 5 months August 11th, she keeps them a few weeks after their weaned (he was weaned 2 weeks ago) to make sure they have their manners and basics down.
I'm boarding him at another Appaloosa breeding farm near my house, I wanted him somewhere that was use to babies and a place that felt comfortable with a stud colt around. We'll geld him in a few months once he settles in, probably October. Snip snip!
They show big time too, or use to, so I can get some help if I want to go to a few local open shows with him. I've never shown in my life.. I just wanted spots! ;)
