So I finally got some updated pictures of Finn, I was taking pictures of where I want to put my garden this spring so had my camera handy in my pocket when my son wanted to take Finn for a "walk". (He does this about every day, it's good for both my son and Finn so I usually let him.)

Finn is 11 months old, 3/4 Shire, 14.3 hands last measurement. Excuse his hack job belly clip, he had laid down in some cockleburrs last week and I couldn't justify yanking on his poor belly to get them out, so I just shaved it. He still pretty much a woolly bear, hasn't shed out much of his winter coat yet. And yes Finn's standing on a hill in most these pictures - he's butt high like a typical youngster but he isn't THAT bad *lol*

He's finally starting to look a little less baby-ish and a little more horse-like. (Oh, and yes, my son is extremely tall. He's actually only 6, believe it or not, he's a very big boy. I'm 5'9", my son's father was only 5'10", but my brother is 6'4" and I think my son is going to end up like him!)

He is such a cutie!! But I'm secretly hoping his brother/sister that's coming soon inherit's dad's big blaze! I'm a sucker for a good blaze =)
I'm kinda surprised Finn doesn't, both mom and dad do, and a blaze is certainly a breed trait with the Shires! Bit he's a real doll. He's got a fantastic temperament. I'm with you on the blazes though, Finn is only the second horse I have ever had that DIDN'T have a blaze, I just like the look of them. :)

Paintedhooves, thanks! I can't wait until he sheds out all the fuzzy stuff so I can finally figure out what color he will be *lol* He's been a fading black, (he's massively sunbleached right now) I assume he will stay that but you never know!

Well, you can send Finn this way if you don't want him. I think he's adorable without a blaze!!! Really like the last photo of him!

*gush gush* omg, if you had a matched set of those cuties I would steal them both! He's sooo cute. Would be nice to see the filly version too though. Anyway we can go pick her up and shake that baby out?

Haha! Not a chance! I just said I always had horses with blazes, not that I didn't adore Finn just the way he is *lol* I wouldn't part with Finn for anything!

Tealamutt, gosh I'm about ready to! I think, since she is showing like, no signs of anything now, I might just say screw it and sleep through the night tonight. That will about guarantee that she will foal tonight right?

Haha, just had to add on here the pictures I took today. I got tired of waiting for Finn to shed out and went ahead and gave him a quick body clip (not very close) and a bath. He doesn't even look like the same horse! He's looked so baby-ish for so long, and shave him and viola! All of a sudden he looks like a horse. Too funny!








(and no, don't worry, I didn't shave his feathers off, they are just still wet in these pictures)
