My 15 month old Clydesdale - how is he looking?

I am new to this forum and its wonderful to see so many heavy horse owners!

I have had my boy from the age of 11 months and these photos are from a recent show I took him to. He is my first horse, although iv been riding and around horses since I was about 8 (many moons ago!).

He is now 15 hands (potentially going to reach 18 hands when full grown.

I just wanted to know how he is coming along?

Thank you.

Yes he is very gangly at the moment. All head, knees and bum high most of the time! And he has his baby warts on his nose. So all in all a bit 'fugly' looking at the moment.

But he has the temperament to die for, I can do anything with him. I know a guy who has a 6 year old one in a very similar colour and he is just gorgeous. So its nice to see what he will eventually grow into.

He is my pride and joy

He's a doll, and such a lovely color! He is in that awkward phase, but he's going to be a beauty once he grows into himself a little more! (:

A lot of draft and draft crosses look like they have ewe necks when they're young simply due to lack of muscling. My 4yo draft cross is finally coming into his neck, but if you'd seen him when I got him as a 2yo, you'd have sworn he was ewe-necked.

I think he is doing well from when I first got him at 11 months old:








To now at 14 months:
