Look how far he's come already!

Sorry! I know you all must be sick of seeing my little guy, but he is my first foal and I love him! He just turned 25 days old, and I was looking at a pic of him the day he was born. WOW! He has changed so much already, I can't wait to see how he turns out in the end!
The first one is of the day he was born and the second one is from this afternoon. The third is a pic of his half brother by the same sire, I think he'll look very similar. Anybody agree? Disagree? Tell me what you think of him so far, don't worry about telling me the truth, I can take it!

Wait a minute, how did his rear stocking move to the front leg???? In his baby pic, he has absolutely no pigment around his eyes\muzzle????

Thanks guys! I have been going crazy over him since he's MY first foal. I've helped with others, but this one's MINE! I'm so happy with him already!! And, arabian foals are born with white skin and then at about two weeks that flakes off and there you have black skin! I am probably being so obnoxious over him, but I'm just really proud!

AWW he is adorable! He has a funny face in the first pic like he's saying "Pssst! MOMMM the lady is takin' pics 'gain!" :P. I'd take tons of pics too though if it were my foal. you can never have too many pics if you've got a cute furry baby!

He does look like the mini version of his half brother! That's neat!

OH! and we played around yesterday, his favorite thing of mine is my keys, but we played with bags and stuff too. I put my jacket over him and he was walking around like it was nothing! Oh, I have a feeling that he'll be an easy one to break! ^.^ And in other news, one of his testes dropped! LOL So if the other one deciedes to visit, then mana will get to meet Dr.Chuck in a few months!
Also, what do you think of his front legs? Even when he is standing with them even they bow out at the knee. Deja's legs are nice and straight and so was the sire's. Is this just and awkward baby thing he'll grow out of?
