Frog Pond Draft Rescue, where I got Boss from, posted pictures of him as a one week old colt on their page today! Can we say CUTE!?

His dame was only 15 hands... o.O I bet Boss is a MONSTER compared to her now.

what a cutie! Is he a haflinger?

That's more than cute!!

ShutUpJoe 08-29-2011 02:48 PM

He's 3/4 Belgian, 1/4 Haflinger. And about 17 hands, although I haven't measured him. He's still got room to grow though, lol. Thanks : )

Awww, he is adorable!!! He looked so tiny, and small, well compared to him now lol....ShutUpJoe....what are your plans for him?

I didnt know you got him from the Frog Pond Rescue....

ShutUpJoe 08-29-2011 03:39 PM

Well our intentions were to turn him into a husband horse. But seeing how my husband has lost interest in him I'm thinking (wink wink) of showing him... Getting a trainer out here and showing him dressage because I think he has the moves for lower levels and I'd LOVE to start showing. BUT it all depends. I spoke with a trainer and she told me that I should give him another year to physically and mentally mature. So until next summer he's just getting the basics. I have sat on him once and he did fine. I actually can't wait to ride his trot and canter. He looks rather comfy.

And yes I got him from Frog Pond at the beginning of the year. I was fostering Ella (the craigslist Clydesdale) for them and they brought him to me. This is JJ.

He probably would be great at that! From the look of him, he looks like he would be comfy!!!!

MyLittleHunter 08-29-2011 03:48 PM

What a cutie he was! And he looks great now too. Keep us updated on any progress towards showing him. :-)

He' gorgeous. As a foal, he looked absolutely stunning. Excited to see him under saddle.
