It Has Begun... I'm so excited!

It's finally happened! I measured my horses today and my colt is FINALLY bigger than my mare (his dam).

Gypsie stands at 15.1 hands... Dakota measured 15.1 hands and.a half of another inch! I'm so excited! I've been hoping since he was born that he'd end up taller than both his sire and his dam, since his sire always throws foal that get bigger than him (his sire's 15 hands even).

Now it begins... I wonder how much, or even if, he'll gain any more... He's a coming 3 year old, so I'm gonna keep hoping that he hits at least 15.2 or 15.3 hands.

I sure hope that he'll grow more... I was thining that he wasn't going to get much taller because he's already filled out fairly well... but I can still hope and be happy!
