Perfect! You surely don't need 2 so now you can finally send me John's big handsome self!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

He's a bit downhill, but not as bad as this picture looks. His front end is in a bit of a hole...and he's only 2.5 years old.


Sucks, I'll have to wait to start him when he grows into my saddle, it's quite a bit too wide for him still.


He's super cute! Only 2.5 yrs old? I wouldn't worry about it! I love his conformation, I think he's adorable. I wouldnt be surprised if he evened out quite a bit. Calypso took a bit longer to even out as well, but she was half draft! give it time!

LOL, he's half draft as well. His daddy was a Percheron.

I'm hoping that he's through growing, 15.2 is plenty big...but his string test said 16.1 so we'll see.

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/

15'2 is a good height, I'm with you on that one. I should do the string test on my filly. Both her parents are 16'3hh, so I fear what the result might be can't beat the draft crosses tho, such beautiful, sweet tempered crosses. Glad ours has draft in her, she's a bit playful, but as sweet as a button.

LOL, other than the string test on him, I have no idea what his height might end up. Daddy is 18hh and momma was about 15hh LOL.

Ugh, is anyone looking to buy a horse? PITA has destroyed my fence twice in the last 2 days .

Looks like he's going back into the smaller paddock with John and Bess. The fencing is sturdier there.
