Finn pictures - I was bored.

The things I do with rain-induced boredom and a youngster with the patience of a saint. lol

BTW braiding is sooo not in my skill set. Obviously. I crapped out by the time I got to his forelock though. I suppose I should have bothered to do something about his shaggy ears and beardy face. Whoops.

So here's Finn, 28 months old. (3/4 Shire, 1/4 Paint)

(I don't know what he is doing in this picture to make his neck look non-existent lol)

Aw, Finn is such a cutie. He's finally starting to grow into himself a bit. I envy all of you with the big drafty types to play with. I keep telling my hubby that I have plenty of stall space now, he should buy me something 18hh or so to play with, lol. He responds that he will be glad to buy me a bull and let me train it to ride.

Thanks! He's getting there~ He's crazy butt-high right now so I suspect he's headed into (another) growth spurt. Argh!

I think you need a drafty. *nod-nod* I think everyone should have at least one.

Thanks, guys! He's a good kid This was my first attempt at the scalloped braids, since I couldn't be bothered pulling him and his mane is too long to do traditional buttons or rosettes right now.

Aw, Finn is such a darling <3. He does still look so young and gangly LOL. I am so used to seeing my tub-o-lard running around that he skews my view of everything else.

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:

LOL Smrobs! Well Rafe looks lovely and balanced though. Finn grows upwards, and only upwards, never outwards. He's only marginally wider than he was at 7 months old, despite the fact that he has put on a full 8 inches of height since then. Gah! I just have to keep my fingers crossed that what they say is true about shires growing in height first and bulk later. That or resign myself to being a tightrope walker/trapeze artist.
