The Friesian stud colt Lestat

I finally got my dream stud baby from the sire I've been drooling over since I was 13. Nanning374! He's 9 months old and registered Leroy but I chose his barn name to be Lestat after my favorite author Anne Rice. Here's some pictures of him. My mom did some energy work on him today to help with his healing from his traumatic trailer experience but he's expected to make a full recovery! For a thorough story on his hauling accident this link explains it. He's doing great considering what he went through.

I can very rarely see the pictures at work, but I'm glad I can see these.. he's beautiful.

Sorry to hear he had such an awful journey down to you.. would have scared the living daylights out of me, but hopefully he's well on his way to being fixed.

Sending healing hugs your way- he's a handsome one!

He's settling in now and he's walking with barely a limp. He's swollen through his armpit and pectorals but he's not as sore as he was! I walked him in the arena today and we practiced personal space and "whoa". He did really well but being a baby keeping his attention on me is a chore outside of his stall. He's very eager to please though which is great! The vet comes out on Friday to start the first of three laser light treatments to help tighten the muscles.

I'm excited to build him into a gentleman! I decided against breeding Caleigh since it's just not worth the risk to possibly loose her and decided on bringing Lestat home instead as the new baby. This way I can start him and finish him how I want to and I don't have to wait 11 months! He should be out and moving around on his own in a few weeks hopefully. We'll see what the vet thinks on Friday!
