Oh yes, I will pull it. My hands will def. Be sore. He won't look like a massive halter horse, but I think he will look decent. He is in that awkward growing stage still, but is looking less and less like a baby. He's knees look huge, so hopefully they start closing up soon.

Dork is also rubbing his mane on the bale feeder! Urg! I need to find a slinky or something to protect it. The show is in 10 days!

Here are some pics from this weekend and some from about two-three weeks ago.

He is between 14.3hh and 15hh right now, and weighing approximately (says the weight tape) 893lbs.

He'll be quite substantial when finished then -- too big for me

He should finish a good size! I hope not too tall though haha. I'm afraid of heights.

Well.. don't hate me, but we trimmed and pulled. He had a lot of hair! It will be banded on Friday after a bath. It needs some touching up still. It looks wonky in the middle because he has been rubbing it and it is laying funny. I did his forelock too. I think he looks really handsome now! He is also roaning a bunch still. Eek!

I think that's quite a respectable job on the mane and his coat is looking very good.
