So this is my first time owning a colt this young (around 5 months I believe) and I had an oppertunity to have this colt for free. I'm not sure if any of you heard about that case of 160 horses on 200 acres that was rescued by some families in Fresno as well as Fresno SPCA but he is one of those horses. I had gotten him from a gal that saved him from the herd but couldn't continue care for him (for reasons unknown) so him and a dark buckskin looking filly came with him to my friends ranch where I came across him. Long story short, she gave him to me since I work at her ranch part time and have known her long time.
He's roughly 5months old and is an appaloosa colt that's starting to get white hairs all over so I'm guessing he'll be a red roan when older? (Forgive me I'm not the best with genetics)
What would you name him? He hasn't been handled much so he's still sketchy around people. Any advice? Tips? Tricks? Pointers as to the care of a young colt? Trying to make one thread so I can always go back to it and read your guys' suggestions :)
ALSO: not the greatest pictures of him, I apologize. I will be taking more probably tomorrow or the next day!
Thanks in advance!!
