Introducing Fortora Farms Grey Arrow

I had posted in the "Mini" section that I maybe getting a mini, well I got him :)
My uncle brought him to me at about 2pm yesterday. I had wanted to do a one week trial just to see how everything went. But after I seen him and Rain together it was love at first sight lol. He was great with her, and her with him. He was great with the kids they were all loving over him. He is the calmest yearling I have ever been around. Hehe

Name: Fortora Farms Grey Arrow. He needs a barn name any suggestions?

Gender: Stallion (Will be gelded)

D.O.B.: 4 - 6 - 08

Height: I don't know yet I haven't measured him. He is tiny though lol

Extra: He is registered with the AMHA. If anyone would like to know his bloodlines let me know and I will post :)

I do know his sire was a 33" silver dapple appy and his dam was a 34" brown appy.

How big do you think he will get and what colour would you call him? His papers said grey but what do you think? And someone said something about him maybe getting spots as he gets older what do yall think about that?

Okay here are some pics and I will stop talking lol These were taken today :)

Him and Rain together look at the size difference hehe

Eating the stump.. That's where I usually put a salt block so I think he needs some salt :) Will get it today.

His tiny face.

Look at that mane and tail :)

Him and my four year old neice :)

He doesn't look gray to me, he looks chocolate palomino.

And he's sooo handsome!

What a cutie :) He's a silver black. As for coloring out to be appy, very possible. Looks like he might have white sclera? Does he have mottling on his muzzle or genitals? If so, he'll likelly get some appy color (prob varnish out a bit maybe). Silver causes hoof striping, so that doesn't help figure out if he got appy or not in his case.

I'd call him Arrow :) What's his AMHA name, are you sure that isn't an AMHR name? There's no horse listed with AMHA with that name. Or maybe the paperwork hasn't been sent in yet (or was just done so recently)? Was just curious if he's related to any of my mini apps :)

I don't know about the mottling, I will check. I think I may go with Arrow :) On one paper I got with him it says AMHA and AMHR but on his actual registeration paper it says AMHR (Sorry just noticed it when you asked.) Oh and now that you said something it says Temporary Certificate of Registration. What does that mean? Do I need to send them in? He's name on the papers is Fortora Farms Grey Arrow :)

I found the website to the breeders :)
Welcome to Fortora Farms

His sire is AF Grey Feather of Fortora Farms and his dam is Spotted Acres Easter Flower :) When they had him, they had him for sale for $1200 I got him for $175.. I tried to call them and someone told me they would call me back but I never got a call :( I wanted to see where all he has been. It dosen't really matter but I was just curious hehe

Hmm the website says he's A/R. Maybe his paperwork for A wasnt' sent in?
His granddaddy (sire's sire) is VERY famous!

And yup, he's related to my stallion Chianti, as they both are from Chianti's lines (Chianti is a VERY famous mini appy, mine is also called Chianti lol)

A and R do temp registrations until a certain age, then if they are oversized they can't go permanent. With A the age is currently 5 years, but next year may or is (not sure if it went through fully or still in works) changing to 3 years old, which is the age R uses. After they reach their 3rd bday, you send in paperwork to bring them permanent.

Sounds like you got one heck of a deal with him! :) What are your plans with this cutie? Driving? Showing? Just loving on?

I got him by pure luck. LOL If my uncle knew all this about him he would have never sold him to me for that. On his paperwork that you have to send in it says it needs to be sent in when he is 60 months old. He was just going to be a pet and I was going to teach him driving :) But now that I have seen all this maybe I should show him? Hehe He is VERY SMART and into everything lol

If it says 60 months, then it's AMHA papers. I'm confused :) hehe not hard to do!

I think you SHOULD show him! For fun, and if you place, GREAT! There's a lot more to do in the breed ring than halter as well. Liberty, jumping, driving, obstacles, ect. You might really enjoy it :) And if you DON'T enjoy it, at least you gave it a shot and can continue to enjoy your pet :)

Thanks so much :) I think I will show him. He is smart as a tack. Lol
