my new little fellow!

Here are a few photos of my new baby, Finnegan! He is definitely an ugly duckling right now with his growing body all out of whack and a bit on the thin side, but I think he has potential!

He is starting to turn grey through his face, along the top of his neck and back and down his shoulders, though you can't see it yet.

He's an 8-month-old Percheron/Oldenburg cross and 14.1 hands (15 in the back end).



Previous owner left the halter on a lot I think, as this crease won't go away...

Definitely NOT ugly! <3 He has a sensitive look about his face. Makes me want to squeeze.

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Thanks guys! And yes, he's VERY shaggy. Can't wait til he finishes shedding, or until it warms up enough to give him a good bathing. He's only been here a week.

I agree, definitely not ugly. He is going to be quite the looker when he's grown as it appears he has very nice conformation .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks, smrobs! He is rather cow-hocked at the moment, but for now I'm going to attribute that to the fact that he is 8 months old, underweight (you can't tell from this picture because of all the hair!) and a draft cross. I know it will improve with time.

I think he looks adorable! Boy has some nice thick legs on him. Can't wait to watch him grow into himself. Congrats :)

Awwww, he's so cute! Love his coloring and his sweet eyes. He'll be quite the looker, I bet!
