So I am still holding out hope with my guy too!
I remember you posting photos of him way back when and it is neat to see how they grow!
How tall to you reckon Rodeo is now? My guy makes about 14 - 14.1 hands. I am also hoping the withers eventually catch up to the butt!
Thanks trailhorserider!!! I was hoping the 1/2 TB he is would give him some withers, but as of yet, he really doesnt have any, thanks for that info though! It is very neat isnt it!!! Im planning on taking pictures of him as he grows even more, and then making a thread from when I first got him to his age when I post them, just to compare the differences!
As far as how tall he is, the last time I measured him was 7/7/2011, and he measured right at 14hh. And, of course, that was about a month and a half or so ago, so Im sure he's grown a bit since I moved to NC, which was at the beginning of the month. But yes, I too am hoping his withers catch to his butt!!! LOL
