    He's a cutie Patootie. Love his coloring! He may turn out to be a total super star...and may hit the 15 hh mark. Can't wait to see better pictures of him after he settles in and gets used to you handling him!

    I have always been in love with the Kigers. The feral coloration is truer there than any other mustang areas.

    I'd imagine he'll make 15hh. He may end up being a fun to saddle fit horse too given how wide some of them are. Good luck! :)

    The new colt has arrived! He came in with another mare that our friend adopted. The two of them were somewhat reluctant to get off the trailer and go into the strange unknown beyond, but they were soon happily munching on hay. As they were standing together, I noticed something that buffered my hopes of our colt growing. The mare our friend adopted is three years old and 15 hh. The colt was standing next to her while they ate, and his legs were just as long if not a smidge longer than hers. This gives me hope that when he grows into those lanky legs, he'll be at least 15 hh if not a bit more.

    He certainly has a beautiful face & a lovely expression. Not real fond of his front knees, but that could change. Love his coloring & he looks like he'll be pretty tall. Do keep the pics coming!

    Wow, I browsed some of the others on the site and I think you got the
    Pick of the litter! Just check out how he's floating on the second pict
    Down, what a mover. I like his overall conformation, much better than
    The others listed especially ones at other locations. His knees do look a
    Bit funny in the picts, but he may
    Grow into them or at least look a bit more balanced as he grows.
    His head is just beautiful, neck nice and long, way to go!
    Good luck, can't wait to see more home shots.

    Did you get a close up look at # 4717? What a beauty, not that he is perfect
    Just really impressive. I think I'm going to use him as my screen shot for a bit!

    I have always loved the Kigers. They are down right gorgeous! I don't know about how big he'll get. He is certainly all legs right now, but he's also evened out a good bit, makes me think his growth is slowing, but you never know. He certainly is a looker. Good luck with him!

    I got a rising two year old filly years ago (about 22 months old) and she was 14hh, maybe 14.1hh at most 14.2hh but I doubt it, she was pretty little, I thought she'd make 16hh. Anyway she's a good 16.3hh, possibly 17hh and she's huge! I don't really know how height ratios work but they can seemingly grow out of nowhere sometimes.
