I got to looking at my QH Jaxxon's pics yesterday and it's shocking the difference in him... He's so much bigger, is at a great weight, and looks so different, so I figured I'd share.
I got him as a scrawny, untrained two year old and now he's a big, healthy, trained four year old! (coming four year old, at least...). Before: Two Years Old (2008) --- He doesn't look like a two year old, but he was... I've known him since he was about six months old...
^ For the record, to show how small he was, the paint mare was only 15.1 hands tall...
^ He wore a yearling halter!
^ He'd just had his first bath ever! Halfway: Three Years Old (he's looking better already!)
^ Check it out! He's graduated into a horse-sized halter!
^ And he hit that gangly, awkward stage a few months late... but at least he began catching up and growing!
^ And he got trained and shocked us all by his calm and super willing and smart disposition! Now: Four Years Old (well, he'll officially be four in June...)
^ It was revealed that he's a cryptorchid stallion... so now our goal is to raise the money to have him gelded sometime this summer or fall!
^My younger cousin's love to ride him when they are out here and he's their favorite horse because he's so calm. They've actually threatened me with bodily harm if I ever sell him! Lol!
^ Jax doesn't have a mean bone in his body!
^ I don't think he's going to make a jumper, though...
^ But he's sure turned into one nice 15hh horse...
