Rafe is getting big!!

Here are the pix that I took today. He has got his winter woolies for real. I also found out how his daddy is bred. He is related to King Fritz and Doc Quixote so I hope he gets some cow savvy from them. LOL. He is about 3 1/2 months old right now and is already about to outgrow his weanling halter. I think by the time he is a yearling, he will be in regular horse sized halters.

























Here he is by Pokey, he is about 15.2 hh tall or so.



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 ya'll. He is getting ridiculously big. I love his color, I am glad that he didn't turn out that orangey sorrel. To me, that is just too bland. And RG, the only place he shows his cross is on his legs, he has yet to develop a single feather. I am beginning to wonder if he will grow up to have clean legs. I also don't know if his big neck is because he is part draft or if it's because he's fat. He does tend to jiggle when he walks LOL.
