Depends on how you define ugly. LOL. By my definition, I own 3 FUGLY horses (one of them is his mom). ROFLMAO. I love them anyway though. ;)
I am just happy that it appears he is growing into that huge honking head of his. I was so worried that it would be fugly like his mom's (I guess it still could be, depending on how he grows). I am really hoping for him to be a little smaller than mama and other than that, take EVERYTHING; looks, confo, even cow savvy, from his daddy.
He is one robust young man! Reminds me of pictures of my colt when he was "little." I don't think either them are fugly! That's wonderful that he likes to be around you. Our belgian filly used to get out and sneak into the yard and yank up my mom's sunflowers by the blossom and take off running with the stem and roots flying, my mom yelling and running behind her! Sneaky boogers, they are!!
