Merit - Yearling fuglies!

Snapped a few pics with my phone while the little man was in for his breakfast this morning. Boy is he ever going through the yearling fuglies! He is very butt high right now, not quite 14hh yet. I am anxious to see how he sheds out in the spring, the white hair is becoming more and more. Right now there is just enough to make him look dirty He is such a quiet, well mannered colt that I have decided he's earned a chance to stay. He is getting cut on Monday morning and the plan is to start him as a long 2, put a ton of miles on him and give him to my daughter eventually.

I love his head

Really, can't I just eat? (And you can see my awesome beat up arena walls...hopefully come spring I will be re-doing all of the walls with white duraplate, I can't wait!!!)

Omg! My Lyric has the same white-ish patch on her leg. I've always wondered what it was. Her mother was a gray, but I've never seen one of her foals gray out. Does this mean that Lyric might actually gray out? I haven't seen any signs of her graying out. (goggles or lots of white hairs in various places.)



Ps...Sorry to hijack your thread! Merit is lovely! And I love your barn, walls and all!

Thanks Boo! HAHA Lori, you'll have to fight Morgan for him. They are pals, I caught her on him in the pasture I have a standing offer on him but she has convinced me to keep him for her. She's definitely my kid ;)

Idk PD? There is always the possibility. Merit is my first greying out experience so I'm not the best to ask that. (Might ask Chilaa?) I finally got Lacey's test back from UCD and she is homozygous for grey so I don't have to guess anymore :)

LOL I would never take him from Morgan. You'd better keep a picture journal of them growing up together...to share with us of course!

That I can do. Maybe when he's grown up and started you could come visit and take him for a spin.
