First off, thank you everyone that stoped in to say hi. If Ced could read im sure he would be blushing with all the positive posts.

I wish you the best of luck with Ced, you will be great with him!

Have your kids seen him yet? Seeing my son with my horses brings such a good feeling to me.
I live in the sierra navadas, its really pretty WHen the ranch owner takes them down to the flatlands they get all depressed. I fully understand why!

THe kids havent seen thim yet they live in another state, hopefully this summer they will be able to. Should be interesting since they have never messed with a horse up close. Its for sure better they meet him now seeing as he is a year and, though im not sure where to measure, but where his neck meets his back he is about 15hh

What is the average age a horse stops growing?

That's cool.
Hmm, I think it can be anywhere from 5-7yrs. But it depends.

Ride more, worry less.

Help is easy to come by in the mountains where i live, everyone seems to have horses. I also started messing with another horse on the ranchnamed Beebee. SHe is ridible and trained pretty well. i have Beebee show me how im supposed to get her to do the commands and then i go show ced how. beebee is stubborn in the fact she only does thing the right way, so if im not doing something right i know.

5-7 years. It can vary based on bloodline even within breeds.
