Thanks Csim & WSA.

He's got such a great disposition that it didn't take too much convincing for him to stay. He takes everything new with a grain of salt, will work a halter less showmanship pattern and even stands ground tied for sheath cleaning. Such a good boy :) I think he will end up being a nice level headed all-around gelding for my kiddo.

His sire is Dynasty, the younger of the 2 old men left here of my grandfather's. He's a short, bulldog kind of guy. I really need to get some decent pics of him. He is a grandson of Poco Dell and was out of a daughter of Due Note (by Sugar Bars). Dam is a gd of Peppy San Badger, Doc Tari & Docs Lynx and ggd of Sonny Dee Bar.

He should have a little cow aptitude

Thanks Kayty. I hope he's got a bit more in the tank too. He shouldn't be terribly tall by any means, his sire is very cutting bred and is a little guy at 14.2hh (he is like a cat on his feet!) but has always put babies on the ground that end up the size of the dam or a hair taller. Lacey is 15.2 and that would be a perfect size for Morgan to do a bit of everything with him. The last one my grandfather raised from Dyno and another mare he had (she was 14.3) ended up hitting 16hh, no clue where that came from.

Merit got cut yesterday, so as my grandpa would say he is officially an "it". I'm hoping that gelding him helps a fuzz with the height too. My vet was very impressed with his manners. He was in his pasture, all the way at the back when she pulled in. She says "Where is he?" because I generally have whoever caught and in a stall waiting. We walked out and I told her just whistle, he came trotting across his pasture, stopped at the gate and dropped his head waiting for me to put his halter on (like he does every time). It was his first time getting an iv jab and he didn't even flinch. He is definitely a seek to please horse so far, love that little guy.

Morgan knew he was being cut yesterday and when she got home from school she was very inquisitive. So I took her out with me to check his incision sites and explained it all to her. When we were done talking she says "Mom, I already knew you were chopping his balls off."
