Shooter

Shooter can take back his name. He has gotten over his kicking antics and decided people are useful to him.
Look, a baby mule...

Hey, put the camera down and scratch me...

He's decent sized for 10 weeks old...
Megan is 5'2".
I am 5'6"...

Ooohhhh, that's the spot...

Oooooooooo yyeeeaaaaa!!!

Time to add some halter lessons...

Oh look, it's his Man from Snowy River imitation...

Hey, I want to get back to my mommmmmaaaaaa...

Level headed little turd though...

And carries no hard feelings about that haltering thing...
His soooo just like every other Woofer foal. They will follow you anywhere, but they all hate pressure on their noses. Their first instinct to any pressure on the nose is to root out and if that doesn't work, they get mad. Nice thing about them though, they never get excited.

Good lord, remind me to NEVER wear Wranglers in pictures again. I look like Steve Erkle!!

What a cutie. I like the pic where his hears are to either side and he looks like, "Yah, ok! You got me!"

As for the wrangers...they are really chic! Seriously, that is what is coming back in, you are just a little ahead of the times. We are going to go back to high waisted (or so fashion television tells me)! lol

That would be ears not hears.

And I wish I looked like you in a pare of wranglers!! Some day I will, if I can ever loose this baby weight!!

Fun pictures, I love the leading ones!!

He is a tall boy. Now I know how you two got those strong shoulders and upper arms!

Train Wreck said...

You do Not look like Steve Erckle! Thanks for the Smirnoff out the nose!! Owie that burns!! He is only 10 weeks old, It seems like it took forever for him to get here! I lost track of time, and I have had one Grape smirnoff! Have you tried them? Yum! Tastes like grape soda! Burns comin out the nose though! So don't drink and blog!! he! he! oh time for bed! Steve Erckle... LMAO! He is beautiful, and big! Yep you have a keeper and bred well too! Night!

Mikey said...

You and Megan are both beautiful!!!
Shooter is quite the lil pistol there. Love that shot where he's rearing. Looks like he got over it just fine...
Super cute pics. You DO NOT look like Erkle. Geez..

Love those baby itchies - they make such great faces when you hit the right spots! He looks like he took the while halter/nose thing pretty well all things considered. Erkle - nope, don't think so! Megan's lucky to have inherited such good jeans - er, genes. :)

Oh lord girl, Steve Erkle~I think not! You rock girl! You and meagan both!

Shooter~love him! Can't believe he is that old! Great looking colt! THanks for sharing your pics!

She's in HS? Man we need to put bricks or something on there heads so they quit growing!

You guys are too funny.

Horse Crazed-If high-waisted is coming back, I better stock up on my low rise Cruel Girls. They are so comfortable.

LOL-Does everyone remember Rockies? Oh man-those were so popular. And they rubbed my legs raw when I rode. I can't imagine going back to that.

Megan gets so irritated because one of her nicknames is "Shorty". I told her that at 5'2, she has already surpassed 2 of her great-aunts and is matching 3 or 4 of her cousins. She doesn't exactly have the tallest of female genes going for her. At least she isn't bow-legged like some of the paternal side is-LOL.

He's getting so big!!! No he's not spoiled at all. ;)

Great pics (and you are NO Erkle!)
What we need is a balance between the super low (show off your ass crack) jeans and the high-waisted (Revenge of the nerds) jeans.

Just managed to catch up on your blog (been out east for my dad's transplant, didn't have a lot of internet time) and I have to say that I loved your posts about FHOTD. I will confess that I read FHOTD and occassionally comment, I do however agree that it is very cult-like over there (I seem to remember being attacked for standing up for Mikey when I was saying that everyone needed to back off)
What I find highly amusing is the way negative comments towards Fugs are dealt with on her other blog.

Callie said...

Awesome pics! He's a cutie and look at that bone!

Laura said...

Great photos - you look fine!!

That colt is big! He sure looks nice though...!

I would love to be 5'2"!! I'm only 5'nothing! An extra 2 inches would make pants shopping so much easier! lol

BrownEyed Cowgirls said...

Cdn-What other blog? The VLC one? I have never gone to that one because I didn't think I could stomach the oohhh...ahhh...you do everything so perfect training manual-LOL.
Glad to hear the surgeries went well for both your dad and Uncle. Hope all is still going good for them. Does this mean you are home?
Duh, I'll pop over and check.

What they did to Mikey is what took me from mildly irritated, but mostly amused to seeing red and taking every opportunity to punch them verbally. I'm a TROLL now...muahhaahahaha!

Pony Girl said...

Oh what a cutie that Shooter boy is....I love the Snowy River impersonation, LOL! And I wish I looked as good as you in Wranglers! I can't seem to wear those jeans, for some reason, bummer! ;(
