By the way, middle of winter and no snow? Do you ever get snow or doesnt it not get cold enough? Posted via Mobile Device
Yes it's weird thinking of him as my 'little guy' when I've had other horses slightly smaller than him out competing and doing well in open dressage. He's only a whisker off Spighi, my 10 year old who's a midget at only 15.2hh but very solid. And Billy is bum high again and getting more so every day - so a big growth spurt is looming, it will probably take him over 15.2hh when his front end catches up.
And yep, middle of winter and no snow ;) We don't tend to get any colder than 0 degrees Celcius overnight, sometimes down to minus 4 when it's REALLY freezing so we'll get a bit of frost on the ground. I'm close to the coast, so a little further inland up in the hills and a couple of small mountains, we'll get a sprinkle of snow every now and then, but not more than a few flakes that melt pretty well as soon as they hit the ground.
We just get LOTS of mud. We've had the wettest June on record this year, we had a couple of dry days hence I took advantage of it to bring Billy out for a play :)
Csimkunas6 - YAY *does a happy dance* Billy has finally overtaken Rodeo
I'll be very happy if his winter coat is always like this, he's less hairy than my 10 year old and he was clipped!!!!
