Sparta Update!!
10 Attachment(s)
here is a long bewaited sparta update! lol first of all i want to apologize for the wait:lol:
and i even made you guys a video a few weeks ago i just never posted it but i'll post it here as well.

ok first of all Sparta has grown ALOT! and he is no longer black :? i think he is gonna be a Dark or Black bay. what do you guys think? Sparta has now learned to pick up all feet. he leads FINALLY! he is spunky as ever. and he has already dropped on teste gotta keep an eye out for the other. he has had 2 baths and he HATES them. the first one he broke my rope and got away but i managed to knab him and finish the bath. the 2nd one i re-inforced my ropes and made sure they were good. he stood good at first but he had his moments where he was pulling so hard his butt was sitting on the ground. i nudged him toward the pole (where he was tied) and he was would chill. is tying him and making him stand a bad thing? i feel like such a bad mommy watching him struggle to get free and i don't want him to hurt him self! he is going to get his first trim here in a couple of weeks YAY! he loves cuddles and he loves sleeping in your lap out in the hay. as a matter of fact. i laid out in the field with him the other day with his head on my stomach for about an hour and me and him both fell asleep! ok and now for the video and pictures. and there is ALOT of picture so there will be several posts of them lol

and yes this video is several weeks old. lol but oh well here you go anyway!
Take note at how dark he is in these videos.
and the pictures are in order from oldest to newest. so the last pictures look how light he is getting! what do you guys think on his color? and do you think he'll end up being a Varnish Roan like his momma?

What a darling. Sounds like you've really got a hand on things. Keep up the good work.

lilkitty90 05-18-2010 10:39 PM

yeah. i'm trying my hardest with what we have. he is my first foal and i am trying to do right by him. and give everything i have into his training. and definitely hoping for the best!

He's really growing! He could still be black, I'll hold off on guessing until he sheds more of his foal coat.

What a cutie! I think he'll be a roan of some sort. What's his sire's coloring?

lilkitty90 05-19-2010 07:50 PM

His sire was Black. not sure if he was a Fading black or True black as i never got to see him. and Sparta has 3 full siblings one brother of which is a black Varnish roan appy and 2 sisters who were both paliminos and very light in color. i'm not sure if they had any appy characteristics as i was never close enough to get a good look. and the mom herself is a Varnish roan as well. i am really hoping her retains the Appyness but i haven't really seen any mottling on him

no guesses on color anyone?
