HC I am thrilled with how he has matured, my coach had a look at him a couple of weeks ago. Last time she saw he was a just gone 2 year old and he was hideous!! So she was shocked to see him actually in proportion. She thinks he will go 16.1hh - he's 15.3hh at the moment but still barely has a wither and looks like he's got some more growing. So I've got my wish of him going over 16hh, phew!
He is booked into the breakers for next Sat 16th, very exciting!
MsLady, welcome (kind of, you've been here for almost a year ;) )!
I am definitely proud, I purchased him from a stud as a weanling, he is a registered Hanoverian and has been approached into the German registry. The visiting assessor from the stud book in Germany adored him as a foal and commented that he will make an excellent prospect under saddle. Fingers crossed the German's do know what they're talking about!
No chance of my schedule slowing down unfortunately, I have a mass amount of study (who ever said police are as thick as two planks obviously haven't been through the training!!), fitness requirements are constant and I have stupidly taken on a couple of art commissions for Christmas and early in the new year when I swore that I wouldn't take any more until I finished studying. Oops.
