He is filling out very nicely. You should pat yourself on the back.

Yes I know, the little girl riding him is my 11 year old sister. I was a couple feet away, he was following me, if I say whoa he stops dead in his tracks and she knows when to bail if something happens. The best idea? Probably not. If he was a naturally flighty horse, she would not be on him for the two seconds to take a picture

And Sky, yes, unfortunately the driveway that goes to his gate is gravel, and he has very wimpy feet. We always walk on the side where it is more sandy until we get to the gate. He probably won't be going barefoot

His feet will get better with time. Shoes are last resort IMHO.

What breed is he, exactly?

I would rather leave him barefoot, but if he must have shoes he will get them. Is there a way to get them to toughen up? Is it the whole pink hooves thing? I've always heard to walk away from a horse that doesn't have dark hooves, but I never knew why. I had a mare with two white feet and she never had to have shoes so who knows. He's a paint, not registered, last owners never gave me the breeding report. Topsail Whiz grandson

You girls need to be safer! I speak from experience. I watched my sister took a fall, and ended up in head trauma ward. Minor injury, but scary! Plus! They make FUN bike helmets if nothing else. You can paint your own! :)

I love your horse and he looks very relaxed under saddle and being ridden. Looks like you ladies are doing a fine job! :)

Lol I know, I should know better, I have had a really bad head injury from a horse tripping in a hole and me flying over a head...my sister normally wears a helmet.

And thank you, he is a very sweet, relaxed boy. And I am so happy he is out of his fugly stage and looking like a horse! I was starting to doubt my purchase until the last couple weeks, lol. But he is gorgeous now, and his attitude is just perfect

No colour of feet don't matter. Nutrition and environment matter.. and trim of course.

Hoof boots would help, IMOP.
