Little Guns

Does anyone remember this poor, decrepit little thing from last October?...


Little Guns....is no longer "little" Guns...



Mom sprinkled her fairy dust and 6 month old Gunner is darn near as big as Beretta, who is 5 months older than him. His wonky little legs are straight and strong.

I actually find it quite funny that he points his right front foot out EXACTLY the same way Shooter did and Beretta did. Particularly when they are eating. The leg bones themselves are put together correctly, it just seems to be a genetic 'stance' these foals have.

Gunner is a longer bodied colt like Shooter and has the keenest little head on him. He's as exceptionally reasonable as both Shooter and Beretta have been, so daddy is definitely stamping his kids with his exceptional disposition. I love that.

Yea, I don't think being a 'plain' bay is going to hurt this kid a bit.;)

He looks great!!! He was such a cute little bugger though!

Mine has the 'stance' going to from when he was a bit crooked in the front. His momma stands the same way and I can't help but wonder if she was a little crooked too as a baby. As long as they straighten out it's great!

I was thinking he could almost pass for a sooty dun but not with a sorrel mom:) He looks like he's not suffering any from being such a late foal! Your mom really is magic!

Dude. You weren't kidding when you said he was a Big Man now!

Going to have to change his name huh? ;)

Desert Eagle Magnum, maybe? hehehe

Look at their necks, the one foot out may be because they have shorter necks. Common in a lot of horses to eat like that. Biiiiiig boy!
