He does still have baby face if that counts!! Otherwise he really is maturing nicely, starting to look a lot like a real horse!!

I didn't realise how close they were either. Very cool.

I'm going to go see if I can find some photos of him looking awkward now so that you can have a giggle....





And my personal favourite, part way through his first clipping session....

He looks like such a darling HC, and SO solid!! Billy is a very fine, modern type warmblood, has got Fish's paces and lovely front end, but the tb dam has really refined him. Makes him look tiny compared to Flirt! How tall is your boy now?

Yep, his sire definitely added some substance to him, although his dam is a pretty solid mare herself. He's got a lovely, trainable mind, just takes everything in his stride.

At the moment he's about 15.1 at the wither and almost 15.2 at the rump. String test says he should get pretty close to 17hh. How tall is Billy? It will be fascinating to see how they compare as they mature!

Which side of him has the clydie? My mind has gone blank and I can't remember! He sounds a lot like Billy, can't beat having such an easy going young horse. I had a roller on him today with chaff bags filled with cans tied to the rings... do you think he cared? Tried to eat them, and when he decided they weren't edible just went along on his merry way!

Ok, yep he's a lot bigger than Billy. Fish is a whisker off 17hh, but the mare was only 16.1hh and a maiden, so I am hoping Billy makes it to 16hh. I haven't sticked him yet, but his 2 year old paddock buddy was sticked at 15.1hh the other day, and Billy is not too far off him. I'd put him at 15hh at the wither, maybe a tad under.

His sire is the clyde. He only stands at 16.1, but was an orphan foal who's growth was slightly stunted. He has consistently thrown foals upwards of 16.3hh.



His dam is the WB (obviously! haha). She is about 16.2. (The filly in this photo is Flirt's 2011 full sister)



Flirt tends to check to see whether he can get out of doing something, then spend a second figuring out how much effort it would actually take to get out of it, then decide that it's too hard and he'll just do as he's told, haha! He's quite a character.

Sounds like there's a good chance of him hitting 16hh then! Not sure how true it is as Flirt is my first step in to the world of WB's, but I have heard that they can mature quite slowly, much the same as drafts do?

The mare is lovely! Flirt should mature very nicely with that combination

Yep, they're very slow maturers, lots of them are still gaining height at 7 years old, and they fill out slowly as well. There's always the exceptions though, my friend's Whisper 1V mare stopped growing at about 2 1/2, she's just under 16hh but very solid.

That's what I thought would be the case. I am itching to see what Flirt will look like in 4 or 5 years time. Billy too!

Neat, love the sub-titles. Too cute. The little guy has grit..... impressive!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
