My little boy is growing up Scotch onthe Rocks.

Well all this is one of my boys! Went through quite an ordeal before I got him trying to find the right colt I wanted to buy and have as a partner in crime. ;) I finally decided on "Rocky" about five months ago! In those five months he's grown into quite the handsome man, and is growing out of all the "flaws" the breeder got rid of him for. His back legs used to turn in, he was incredibly butt high and just oddly proportioned. Obviously just all common issues for babies but the breeder wasn't having it. They had him listed well over $3,000. Then dropped to $1,500 when he wasn't growing the way they liked. I offered $500 and said he'd have a forever home, they practically dropped him off on my doorstep. I couldn't be any happier with him, we definitely have that bond and it's the best feeling in the world! Without any more, here's some new pictures of my boy! More pictures soon. (:

Thank you! Everybody always comments on his pattern, I love it. On the other side all his spots look like hearts, it's adorable. He gets gelded soon as well, as soon as my work schedule slows down.

He's growing nicely-have they ever asked about him? Are you going to show him or is he going to be a trail companion? He's certainly a looker!

No they haven't even asked at all! When they recieved the stallion they have now they were told to GELD and NOT breed him. He has horrible conformation and should never have babies. Luckily, Rocky is growing out of what I thought would be major flaws...Now they're going to geld him from what I've heard and they want to attempt to buy Rocky back. NO WAY IN h***! I do want to show him! Although I'm out in the area where no one shows. I would basically be learning by myself BUT I think it's do-able! I want to show him in halter, the only thing I'm worried about is he's not HUGE like all the usual halter horses. Does that matter? I'm buying a trailer at the end of the month so showing will become a lot easier. He is only 15 months right now, so we have a bit to go before riding happens. He has great manners as of now and is very responsive we've been working on the basic halter pattern and he's done great! I'm looking for him to be my all around guy when he can be ridden as well.

***He is still intact, that is why they want him back..

He's so cute.

I read in another thread of yours (I think) That his behavior was starting to become very..."ass"-like, and that's the main reason you are gelding him. You had considered keeping him intact from what I recall?

But I think he'll make a great gelding for you. He looks like a sweetheart with a naughty side. LoL.

him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."
