New pics at 2 months old...he's all brown and wooly right now, but you can see where he's shedding out to black on his face. He's really filling out and he's got a big elevator butt right now:)

Isn't he something?!! Sooo handsome!! Congratulations on him, tell me your story. I am saving up for a Friesian, and recently I've been thinking "outside the box" about getting a young colt rather than saving up my money for 3 years to buy a 3 yearold, much less expensive, plus i'm mainly interested in having a companion so why not start off when he's just a babbyy.

Aww..he's absolutely stunning! :o
Such a gorgeous little expression..looks to be a great mover too!
In that 3rd 2 month old pic, he looks like he's in the show ring..ears pricked, square halt..
I'd just like to say too, it's excellent photography. =) Compliments to the person who took the photos!

Friesian_lover, those were my thoughts too. Plus, you get the added bonus of watching them grow up and really getting to bond with them...I'm glad I went this route.

Right now, he's mastered leading and getting on and off the horse trailer. He's learning how to stand tied in the stall for short periods of time. He's getting better about the clippers too, though he still stands with his nose in his mom's flank for comfort.

The keuring's in September, I'll post more pictures of him then and let you know how he fares:)

Hehe, my friend Dawn is a bit of a photophile...really nice camera, I'd be scared to use it, even if she let anyone touch it! These are her photos, I just cropped and adjusted them in Photoshop.

He had a feeding tube put in his nose until he learned to suckle. The vet techs would milk the mare every day and feed the baby via the tube every 3 hours or so. The bandage was to keep the tube up and out of the way so he didn't pull it out.
