Well, you wouldn't have any trouble catching him. Give him one scratch and he will follow you anywhere and stick his head right in the halter. I can't help it, I spoil him and give him treats all the time . He is just too darn cute (even if he is the size of a yearling QH already). I have also discovered the best way ever to teach a young one to lead. Once he got the basic idea of give to pressure, he gets tied to the side of Mom when we take the team out. LOL. Saves me from fighting with him.

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/

Awww such a pretty boy! Is he still in the same pen as mom because I didn't see her......

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.

Thanks ya'll. And yes, ILuvjunior, he is still in with mom. I probably won't wean him til about 6 months, she has just given up on trying to keep up with him and stands around eating while he does his own thing.

holey cow. He's huge. He's about the size of my 8 month old, he's starting to get to big for his baby halter as well. What breed(s) is he? Looks like his hooves have some growing to do, his thick legs make them look tiny lol.

He is a QHxBelgian. You can see his momma's butt in a couple of the pix. I don't know why his feet look small in the pix; maybe it's because the pen is muddy and he was sinking with every step he would take . His feet are actually pretty good sized, he just keeps them worn short because he runs all over the place all the time plus he has been getting to walk a lot on the roads cause he goes with us when we take the team out. LOL.
