    future driving or halter career?

    I have been playing with ideas about what I will do with my colt once he is older. Since I plan on doing a few local halter shows with his dam I had the idea to maybe do that with him too. But then I was helping at a parade the other weekend and got the chance to drive a cart for the first time, which I have fallen in love with. I understand that he is still young and he could throw me for a loop in his conformation, but I'd like opinions on whether he could be suited to either of these disciplines in particular. He is going on two months, and is already 10.2hh. He has started to shed out over the last week and it's looking like a liver color so far, and I am certain that he'll end up with three white cornets, though he hasn't gotten those in solid yet. Let me know if anything pops out at you so far. I know it is a bit early to judge confo. But I like to start getting them used to stuff early. Any thoughts are welcome, and thanks for your time!!

    Here are the pics. These are all from within the last two weeks. I tried to get a better rear shot, but he wouldn't hold still for me.

    I plan on driving my two little ones when they are 3, am a bit nervous in the saddle so driving seems safer and calmer for me, so keep me posted my two are 5 months old, wanna ride one western and the other driving

    From what I can tell, which isnt much, he looks good enough to do halter. His legs are very straight, and he has a nice shoulder. Of course its hard to tall with babys
