Haha, thanks ya'll. He is definitely a sweetie but I have trouble keeping him where he respects me. I am not here all the time and my step-mom goes out there to play with him but she doesn't know much about horses so he kinda pushes her around and I have to re-educate him every time I come back. LOL. Oh, well, after he is weaned, he will be turned out to pasture until he is old enough to start riding, she won't be around him as much then ;).
As for the fence....... My dad was training that gray horse in the background of some of the pix. He had been spoiled under saddle before we got him and is a very raunchy bucker. He bucked into the newer one and caved it and threw himself over the top of the older one and smushed it. Talk about a rotten horse.
Nope, he isn't. Dad is fixing to take him back to the owner with the suggestion that they find a bucking stock contractor that would be willing to buy him. He will ride great for 5 or 6 miles and no matter how tired he is, sometimes something will set him off and he will start bucking and in Dad's words, "Casey Tibbs would have trouble riding that horse." LOL and with Dad being almost 60, he is way too old to be riding horses like that and I am not brave enough. LOL. So back home he goes and Les can do with him what he wants (why the bought the offspring of a champion bucking horse stud as a riding horse I'll never know).
Yep. So far, the only thing that I notice he took from the QH side is that it looks like he may not have any feathers on his legs. Dad has been around pure Belgian foals before and he said that by this point, they are showing at least some indication of future feathers but his legs are perfectly clean, not a single long hair on them.
Thanks you guys, I am completely in love with him already, now I just wish that I could fast forward to his 4 year old year and start riding him. LOL.
