    Love the name, cute boy!

    I have to agree with others with respect to his age, he looks like a baby! It is possible that he is a (very) late bloomer of course, however, given all the confusion that happened with his papers, I'd get a dentist out to look at his teeth and make an approximation. First and second incisors and premolars will give a pretty good indication of his age.

    You said in a post "I hope he's fast" What does that mean? You never seen him run? I don't get that. Please excuse my lack of barrel knowledge, but I would think I would want to get an idea of how fast a horse runs if barrel racing is a speed/timed event.

    He could be younger it's ok if he is too. And you can't start a horse on barrel that isn't broke to ride properly ( unfortunately some people do this). Barrel training won't begin for quite a while. He needs a proper foundation of training on the ground beforehand so it's going to be a bit before I even think about getting on his back. Then he's going to needs lots of riding and then I'll finally I start barrel training. Barrel starting is definitely a next year thing. Trust me there is a reason I have really calm well trained horses even when they are young. I don't rush, my horses understand what I want before we move to the next step. My ten month old colt Jet is calmer about me putting my saddle pad on him and swinging ropes and seeing potentially scary stuff than Trouble is so there is still plenty to do.

    He is built for the speed and I seem him canter around the pasture but you can't get the full gage of his abilities until you ride him and I can't ride him yet.

    He goes to the vet to get gelded this week I'll have him look at his teeth he is very knowledgeable about determining age by looking at teeth.

    He's really cute! Sounds like you have all the right foundations for getting him started and I like the way you explained your methods. Doesn't sound like you're in as much of a rush as a lot of people are trying to hint at. Haha

    And I love when a person prefers to start their own horses. There is a bond to starting one yourself that you don't get as easy with one who was trained by someone else, and in barrel racing, it is a HUGE plus to work as a team as you know.

    Keep us updated! I like him!

    (PS, I agree about the appendix thing. We trained a 3 year old appendix stud that looked SOOO much like Trouble. He also had the young face.)

    Thank you! I don't know where people got I was in a hurry at lol. You picked up that I enjoy making a strong bond with my horses. To me that is EXTREMELY important! I jave started every horse thay I have owned for that reason. But just incase I didn't make it clear enough I train my horses slowly there is no hurries when it comes to training Trouble will get there in time as he forms a strong foundation on the ground then in riding, and if I wanna barrel race or ride all I have to do is go hop on pepper.
