Ficus, Friesian colt

Ok, finally got some halfway-decent photos today. If you saw the thread in the breeding forum, this is Ficus, the little orphan colt my friends have this year. He's a little hooligan with personality times ten!

The neck bandage is to hold the IV needles firmly in his neck. The belly bandage is from surgery he had to close a leaky umbilicus. He's a real cutie, very bold and curious :P

I added you to my FlickR. I sure hope you're going to keep snappin' photos of this fella as he grows!

I am THISCLOSE to calling Poetry in Motion and to see if they'd like to take some at liberty shots of their Dutch mares. Your FlickR has inspired me.

You should do it, I'd love to see some shots of them. If their website is any indication, I would think PiM would jump at the chance for some good photos

Their mares are great. They are members of the Indiana Friesian Horse Association. They let me ride one of their mares "Savannah" at the Hoosier Horse Fair. It was awesome. Then Stacey Westfall kicked us out of the arena, lol.

I really should go thoguh their breed demo photos from the Hoosier Horse Fair and load them up to my FlickR.

Aw, he is just adorable. You can definitely see the personality. :) o,o and boy does he have some long legs. WOW. Such a cutie.

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 so cute! ^-^
He's so little, I can't imagine the Friesian Gelding I know ever being that little! :P
Are you going to geld him ?

Good luck with him, he's gorgeous.
