    Thanks! The breeder emailed me with 3 possible reigstered names. I get to pick just one. I'm debating between them, so any opinions are appreciated!

    I like Risk it all my self. The other 2 are OK.

    Holy Legs!! He has got some monster legs on him but they look a little odd to me, maybe because his cannons are so long but his forearm is so short LOL. Or it could just be that his stockings are throwing me off. His color is beautiful.

    Looks like you "Risked it All" doing the contract! ;) He is a pretty handsome fella. Love his markings.

    Foal
    Well, it looks like his registered name is most likely going to be Smart Biz. It was a toss up between Smart Biz and Risk It All. I tried to think of which name would sound the coolest being called out over a loudspeaker. I thought all 3 were fairly good names. I guess I'm a traditionalist, and I like to have one name from each parent. Smart from the dam and Biz being short for Business from the sire's side. He's a gelding, so his name really doesn't matter that much in the long run. I still don't have a "short name" or "barn name" for him yet.

    I like to have them around a bit before I give them a barn name. Actually I tend to work their barn name into their registered manes at times too.

    I tend to like to do registered manes that do not actually use the sire and dams pedigree but yet might in some way reflect their pedigree. I got that from a friend who has been breeding reiners for over 40 years. I love the names she gives her foals.

    Foal
    Well, he is officially registered with the APHA. I got a forward from the seller last week with his registration number and his registered name. He is "Diaman H Smart Biz". I'm fairly sure I'll change his name. The wait is literally killing me. I've been watching Clinton Anderson's "Working with foals, weanlings and yearlings" dvds. There's great info in there, even things I can do with my mare to improve her leading habits. And I just got his halter I purchased online in the mail last week. It is so little!! It has been awhile since I've had a foal around. My mare is 3 now, and I got her as a weanling. So... it has been awhile. I wish I got photos daily. I went and looked at the new place I'm moving them to today. The move will be October 1st. My mare and this colt will have their own paddock and pasture section. There's an outdoor arena in the works for next spring, currently just a round pen. There's a large tack shed and it is just a nice place in general- owned by some friends of mine. $130/mo for both of my horses and that includes free choice hay and they will grain them. They even switched their feed, so they're feeding the same as my horses get. My mare might be alone for a few days depending on when I get the colt picked up. I should email the breeder and set up a tenative date to pick him up. So here I am gabbing on and on... just wishing the little guy was here already. I can't work with him when he's 5 hours away!

    He's HERE!!!!









    I left him alone in the dry lot for the evening, and he got to meet my mare today. They're doing great so far and I'm really really thrilled with this little guy!



    The colt is doing the "baby chomp".



    Sage teaching the colt the art of rolling in the dirt:




    I got to work with him this evening, and he's going to be a great colt to train. He seems just like my mare. I desensatized him with the leadline, then my sweatshirt and I took him for a walk 1/4 mile and back. He never called out for the other horses, and was more than happy to just follow me along. He isn't spooky- honestly he's the most mellow weanling I've ever met. He was just weaned last Tuesday, and hadn't been handled before then. I'm so excited!!!!!
