Guess who's 7 weeks old!!!

Rafe is already shedding his baby fuzz!! I thought he was gonna be colored more like his mama but it appears that he may end up more of a darker chesnut color with no Pangare fading. And he is absolutely huge. I sticked him today and he is standing 11.3 hands already . I am beginning to worry that he is gonna outgrow his mom.

Anyway, I always manage to ramble before I post the pix so here we go.

Little stinker has figured out how to contort his way through the fencing so he meets us at the door whenever we leave the house. lol:


But fortunately, if I go out into the pen and call him, he will get himself back in. LOL.





I always have a hard time getting pix from the side cause he follows me everywhere.









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/

I don't think I need to wait any length of time to have him cut, he is already getting the huge cresty neck. LOL




Jumping in his future?????? LOL (he was stomping a fly away)


Him and mama, 2 big fat butts together.


Oh, so tired.






I have also been working with him on his training. He leads okay and stands like a champ when I pick up his feet and beat on them. That will come in handy when he is 1500 pounds heavier than he is now. LOL

He is a big boy! Hard to tell if he is going to color like his mom. One white sock do you think? He's a friendly begger too. Did you have to do much backing up to get the photos? Looks like he had fun following you

Thanks guys, yeah he is absolutely huge. It scares me to think about how big he will be when he is 5. LOL. And yep, Maureen, you are right. Pointed white stocking on the right and pointed white sock on the left (harder to see cause he is dirty).
