Rafe is 9 days old. :D Yay!!

Just thought I would share some more pix and a couple of videos of Rafe. He is 9 days old today. I guess we succeeded in getting him imprinted, he will follow me everywhere and let me touch him all over even inside his ears, nose, mouth, and cover his eyes. He has filled out so much, he is going to be a huge monster in a very short time. LOL.

I will go ahead and post a pic from last week for comparison....
One day old


Today:










As bad as Mom hates it, he is starting to socialize with the other horses.


Cooommmiiinnngg!




"Hey, do I look like a dog to you???"



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/

Big rabbit ears. He got them from his mom.


It is amazing how on close up, it is very hard to tell a 9 day old colt from a full grown horse.


Tried to get a pic of the white markings on his hind legs. Pointed stocking on the right and pointed sock on the left (the point is tall and skinny on the inside of his fetlock, you can see it in some of the other pix).










Mom, I think my halter is a little big!! You overestimated my size. :)


Ooooh..........right..............there.


And here is a couple of videos, sorry for the Rafe overload. LOL

Oh wow! He is SO frickin cute! I love how in the last video, he starts to get up, and then is like... 'ehh man these legs get in the way!' and then stops trying to get up. LOL

I love the pictures with the halter on him! He's like "Look! I can wear the big horsey halters now!" So cute! And he is growing SOOOOO fast.

Keep those pictures coming! Lol

Thank you everyone. I have already grown completely attached to him. In a way, I would love for him to stay this size forever but in another way, I can't wait for him to grow up into his huge self. LOL.

Passionhorse, I don't mind at all if you want to share them. ;p
