Just checked back in on this subscribed thread, and nope, it's not any better, I STILL want to give him huge scritchies all over and kiss his fuzzy little face.

So glad I do NOT have this foal, because I would not be able to overcome the temptation to spoil him rotten...and then I'd have an incredibly gorgeous unrideable horse. Much better to leave him with people who can resist that look...

I just got around to string testing him today and it looks like he should make bang on 16 hands. I hope that it's about right, I think that would be a good size for him.

It's been easy not to spoil him so far, he was very stand offish to start with, but now he is getting a lot friendlier

Ah, genetics! My younger dog, Gilbert, is about 12" at the shoulder, weighs in at 25 lbs (just a bit portly but not rotund) and is full blood Chihuahua. His parents were normal size but he is a moose. I thought he was Chi crossed with something to account for his size. Nope. DNA tests pegs him for full bleed chiwowwow.

My husband's family is average. He was 6'5" and a big guy. He has cousins who are his same height.

Stewie is flawless! Rock on with those draft genes, buddy!

Killing threads since 1996.

I'd love to see how tall he is when he's done growing...I have a feeling you'll need a ladder to mount him

Poor boy has gone through a few names..

When he was born we really thought we had a filly, so HE was called Daisy, Daisy Duke.

When we realized that we had made a horrible mistake we dropped the Daisy and he became Duke.

I really couldn't make Duke stick, and just kept calling him Stuart for some reason, I have no idea where that came from, so officially he is Stuart Little

Stuart became Stewie, as he grows, and GROWS and GROWS, Stewie the Moose came into being......he could end up being Stewie the Mammoth yet

bahahahah! Stewart Little is awesome too.
We call my dog Moose as well...he was supposed to be a little beagle when we got him....he's almost 50lbs. He's no great dane, but he's massive compared to what we were told he'd be when we got him. Haha.
