What are the 2009 babies up to these days?

Hi!! This thread is for the 2009 babies. With 2012 coming at us, their three year old year is nearly here and if they haven't already, they will be starting into their careers soon or, at the very least, have an idea of what their career will eventually be.
So post a baby pic or two and an updated one, as well as their accomplishments thus far and the plans for their future.

I'll get started-

You might remember Mana. He's a late baby, being born the end of August. He currently does everything up to being ridden, including long lining like a champ. I have sat on him before and did a little fiddling around the round pen. He goes to be broke western in May. He is also going to be trained to drive next year. I plan to trail ride (possibly getting into endurance, since I've always wanted to...),but my trainer is missing the show circuit (he used to train and show) and thinks Mana and I could do well. (I need more training at this point, than Mana. )

A few hours old:


A few days:

He's a gelding. As my trainer put it, "If he was a stallion, he'd be a nasty one." And it's true. He's a brat as it is, I can only imagine the trouble he'd cause with those hormones!

Aah!! He's looking great .

Rafe was born on July 16, 2009. He is currently turned out because I just don't have time to mess with him. I've ridden him twice and he was a champ both times. Hopefully, I'll have more time for him come spring when the days are longer.

This was the day after he was born


Here, he was about a month old


Here he was at just about a year


Just a little under 2 years


He was about ?26? Months here, I think.


And a couple of stills from the video I got of me riding. Sorry they're such crappy quality.

I haven't measured him in a few weeks but he's been hanging right at 15.3 for several months now.

ETA: I guess I should have gone ahead and added a bit of the video. This is part of his first ride.

Maybe he won't turn into a giant, after all? I was hoping Mana would stop growing at 14.1 or so since that was how big daddy was, but he is 14.2 and butt high again. Boo! I think he'll top out at 14.3, and just get wider. (Fingers crossed over here! ) I don't have one of me riding yet, but I have one of him tacked up, wandering around the arena. He kept thinking of rolling. Silly boy.


C'mon everyone! I know there were several other '09 babies out there!

LOL, I'm hoping that you're right and he'll not get to 17 hands like I was expecting.

I'm keeping fingers crossed that since he wasn't weaned until about 10 months and he grew so quickly when he was younger, that he got most of his growing out of his system....hopefully .
