Updated Colt pics... I could cry!

Why cry, you ask?
My beautiful boy lost the tip of one of his ears.
I'm so upset this happened... he was supposed to be my show prospect. :(

In the very least, he's still a huge sweetheart... it just means now someone will get him for a lot cheaper than I had orginally planned.
Here are some pics that I took today of him:

Trying to get mom to play:




Dog investigating:



Big Brother:



Being a baby!:






He likes to toss his head around when he sees somebody...lol:





Scratching:



I can almost reach!:



Pretty head:

Aw, I'm sorry about his ear. :( He sure is beautiful, though!! I think that makes him unique.
He has such kind eyes, & I love his face markings.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Even without the tip of the year he's still very cute and lots of personality. I think you can still show him, don't you??

Wow he sure is turning out to be a good looking guy! I like him lots. He looks like Daddy ;)

You can still show but only in performance classes. Not halter, westren pleasure etc.

Alot of people are also very superficial. Just because he has the tip of his ear gone some people think that he is no good. Pathetic.

Tell me about it.
I could see them getting away with it in Halter classes, but Western Pleasure?
Unfornately it's based so much on looks these days, that even if he behaved the best, he would never win. He might place, but he'd never win.

So he better turn out to be a reiner or cutter if sticks around that long, I guess!
