Unhappy My baby boy is growing up.

Well, not up persay. He seems to have come to a pause in his height growth at 14.2. That hasn't changed since about a month ago. However, he has been filling out some. Unfortunately, his build looks more like his momma every day. He's starting to really slick off and my goodness, he is going to be the deep blood red that I like. Though funny as it is, his mane is a little orangey. It looks like it has been dyed.

Anyway, in pictures that completely don't do him justice:
Rafe at a little over 9 months old.

ROFLMAO. That's so true. A little big but not nearly as ugly as his mom. For being such an fugly, ill conformed horse, she sure threw a pretty nice foal. But then again, maybe I'm a bit biased??? LOL.

Haha, I love to make him feel girly. Though it was originally red and has since been sunbleached.

Thank god you finally posted new pictures of Rafe! My gosh, he sure is getting cuter by the minute. He's gotta be one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen. Shame you aren't real show-y, I'm sure he'd do great in some halter classes. =] I swear, smrobs, one day you will wake up and he won't be there, and he'll be happily munching hay in a stall in Washington. =]

Haha, within a day you would send him back. He is quite the little turd. I can't leave anything sitting within reach of his mouth or he will chew on it. He's like a 500 pound toddler LOL, anything interesting goes straight to his mouth. I am actually suprised because I see everyone else's foals going through the gangly, crazy, fugly stages and he has never really had one of those. Now watch, he'll grow up to be one of the ugliest horses ever spawned ;p.

Looking gooooood! I like the orange mane, gives him the cutie pie advantage.

He's starting to look handsome!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
