Yeah, I knew that their yearling year was the funkiest...lol, I was kinda hoping he was over the yearling fuglies, but obviously not. Don't get me wrong though, he doesnt look as goofy as he did for a while there. LOL, for a little while, Id look at him, and say to myself "what did I buy?" LOL.
That's a bummer that she's not staying pony sized for your daughter. Rodeo's sire, Timeraker was I believe was 16.0, or even 16.1hh, and his dam was 15.3hh. So Im hoping he will be at least 15.3hh. I measure hikm on 7/7 and he was 14hh, so we'll see :)
To me though, when I look at his full brother(heres the link to that post What do you think of this horse's confo?
) I see a lot more Thoroughbred, but when I look at Rodeo, he seems to not have, if any TB characteristics. Does anyone see TB traits on him?
