Starting to Look like a Grown Up!

I feel like every month I take new photos of Rodeo, there is some kind of obvious change in how he is growing. I took new photos yesterday, as I wasnt sure if I was going to remember my camera the next few times I went out, and I seem to take photos the same time of every month.
But this month, he is still butt high by a good 2in or so, but I feel like his withers are getting more and more prominent. I know a few months ago I was asking everyone if he appeared mutton withered, but the older he gets the more they seem to stick out! Ill be honest though, in the first two photos, there is something about his neck and head I don't like at all, his neck appears thick to me, and his head seems too small, but then again that just might be his winter woolies playing tricks on my eyes.

Anyways here are pics of Rodeo at just 3days short of his 23month mark!




Headshots







And here are a few of Starbucks, the TWH I ride, he stands really really strangely just about all of the time. He's either parked out, or standing in some other goofy position.


Enjoy

I was told once, look at a horse at 3 days old, three months and three years, and ignore their looks in between lol. For his age he looks pretty good, but keep an open mind, my filly is the same age and I think she looks hilarios right now :p

Ive heard that saying as well! I like it ;)....lol he looks pretty goofy as well. Some days I go out, and I think he's looking really good, and then the next day Ill go out, and he will look awfully funny, growing horses sure are interesting!

Oh my gosh I know!! He was like that when I first got him, but back then we were living in West Virginia, and it was cold. I think the coldest day here in NC where I am at, was maybe 40*F....at night the coldest it got, was I believe 34*F. So I have no idea why he is so fuzzy! Lol

He is looking amazing! I think that it's just the way that he's standing in the first two pictures. He should grow up to be a really pretty boy!!

What a lovely boy he is :)
And don't worry about the goofy conformation - you've seen pictures of my Billy looking hilarious at 16months!!!
My friend said to me last night, that he reminds her of an Ethiopian child, scrawny legs and neck, with a big head and a big belly, poor Billy!!!!!

There's our Rodeo! :-D

I think the weirdness in his neck/head that you're seeing in those first two pics is 'cuz you're not exactly perpendicular to his side, but your right shoulder (as you're taking the pic) is turned slightly toward his butt. I've noticed that the lightest bit off perpendicular when taking pics makes for some wonky photos. Lol

Just remember all the funky, gawkward (my new word...combine gawky and awkward!) pics of Aires. He really doesn't look THAT gawkward in person, I swear, so I'm sure the same is true of Rodeo.

Haha oh my, at least your friend doesnt hold anything back, or sugar coat their thoughts for you! Lol I think Billy is looking great! Its so funny to see and be able to compare how different horses grow up!

You know what, your def right! That's a very good point! Some shots he looks great, but if Im not at the right angle, any shot will look horrid! Lol Funny you should say that Aires looks better in person, that's the exact way I feel about Rodeo!

Love the new "gawkward" lmao!!
