17 months now :) Started to even out a little and look slightly more 'real horse' like in his body, but has also temporarily (I hope) lost his awesome front end! I can fit nearly 4 fingers in the gaps in his knees, so lots more growing yet I'm hoping :)
What a beautiful boy! I think you have a jewel there, Kayty. And hey, even in this awkward stage, he has nothing on Sour! She looked like a camel at his age, and she turned out fairly well! Ofcourse she's no 10k yearling...more like a $200-pushing-it yearling ;D so that makes his chances even beter...right? Lol
He's looking great! Any baby pictures to compare to?
3 months old at his Hanoverian classification day
And 8 months old
Re the comments on how he's looking, I guess I have been pretty lucky that since he turned 1 year, he hasn't had any REALLY terrible growth phases, he's looked very out of proportion, but so far nothing that's made me doubt why I bought him
HC, I can't believe how mature Flirt looks compared to Billy!!!! Guess it might be the draft in him, making him so solid, my weedy little Billy looks so tiny in comparisson
So to me his neck looks funny.
Will it grow out or will he be like that?
Sorry I am not use to babies mine is the first I have ever played with.
What horses are you used to?
He scored an 8.5 out of 10 for type at his hanoverian classification day and the German classifier loved him ;) Both parents have wonderful front ends - there's not much wrong with his neck other than being skinny and goofy looking since he's a yearling.
Go and have a look at more yearling photo's of warmbloods - they don't start out looking stunning and conformationally perfect, then grow in proportion
