Wink Wow, Some change!!!

I think he has grown just a bit......

Day he was born.







And now, 5 1/2 months later...





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/

He's huge!!!

His stripe reminds me of those bumper stickers (or whatever they are) of a cowgirl leaning against a wall, holding her hat, only in his case the cowgirl looks like a witch.

I love him. I think he should come be Lacey's new best buddy. heehee

Thanks guys. Wallaby, that's what it makes me think of too . You are more than welcome to the little s**t, he will drive you batty. He is a regular houdini and there is virtually no fence that will keep him in. I put him in the roundpen of 5 foot tall panels so that I could go for a ride and when I got back, here he came loping down the road to meet us. No idea how he got out. He can even contort his way through an electric fence without getting shocked . But between Dobe and Denny, he learned from the best. LOL.

Wow - he has changed! He's gonna be a big boy. Should be interesting to hear your tales of him testing his - and your - boundries!

Horses are God's apology for men.

Wow!! He's handsome!! He looks like he's gonna be fairly big when he's all grown up.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh, yeah. Dreamer, he is already testing boundaries. I just have to nip them in the butt as they appear cause if I try to teach him something before he tests it, he seems to forget. He leads well and picks up his feet like an old champ and those, to me, are the most important things that I really don't want to fight with him over later (when he weighs more than my car ;p).

Drifter: Yeah, I have pretty much resigned myself to the idea that he is gonna be huge . I was hoping that he would take more after his QH daddy but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen. Oh well, I'll just have to adjust how I work cattle and rope to allow for his size.
