So he'll grow into himself, and then you'll look back at these pictures and be say "I was so worried he's end up all gangly, but look at him now"!
Hahha, he sure is!! He went through one a few months ago, and started to level out a little bit, and now he's butt high again!!! I was hoping he was done with the ugly yearling stage, but nope, not yet :( But, yes, Im looking forward to comparing pics from him of now, and from the future. Thanks for the reply!

I have a 2 year old filly who, at 1 year gave new definition to the "yearling uglies". I've never had a horse I wanted to hide so bad in my whole life. She was AWFUL and now at 2 she's turning back into the beautiful girl I saw when she was first born. Thank GOD!
Hah, that's a great saying!! Maybe Ill just stick to that! LOL....His neck is actually pretty short, it looks long at times, and at others it looks very short....would love to see some before and after pics of your mare!
THanks for all your replies!!!
