His sire was a lot like him at this age looking at the two foal pictures of the two, but he seems to have grown into himself. Hopefully the same is with my colt. Have time to see how he matures though as if I do breed him it wouldn’t be until he is at least 4 years old and has had time to be trained and such.
I had asked the vet about his legs and soundness, but the vet doesn’t think its anything to worry about, but then again who knows. I guess time will tell, but every one that has seen him does think he will grow up to be very athletic. I hope they are correct.
For his height and jumping what the size has to do with it is I prefer tall horses for jumping as a preferance.
As for breeding for colour I would NEVER breed any animal based on that. My goal would be to breed a healthy horse free of genetic diseases such as HYPP, HERDA, etc. and that would be a good horse under saddle. That is why I would not be breeding him until he has been trained under saddle and I can see how well he does once finished growing and filling out, and why I have already gotten him HYPP and HERDA tested.
Yes when the time is correct he will be separated from my mare, but currently he doesn’t act the least bit studish and my mare wouldn’t have any of that anyways. He more looks at her as if she is his mom, but in the next little while they WILL be separated.
