Settled In

The Youngsters are settled into their new pens...



They are good sized so they have room to move around, stretch out and roll.

Shooter is pretty happy to be alone with all the hay he can eat 24/7...
He took off growing again and is going through a phenominal amount of hay trying to keep his frame filled up. I think he was getting tired of the big boys pushing him from pile to pile of hay at the other place. No matter how far the BO spread the hay out, Moon liked to keep everyone on the move. Not good for growing kids, so Shooter will stay in and get to hang with little sister...
I do believe Beretta is very happy to have direct, but safe contact with another horse. She spends most of her time snugged up to the fence between her and Shooter. She is fixing to take off growing again too. Seems she has grown a couple of inches in the hip already. That's not an optical illusion, she is really butt-high right now and she is standing up-hill. The little woolly-mammoth is finally started to shed too.

She is really starting to change. I see so many similarities between her and Shooter. Daddy has definitely left his stamp. They have always had the same mouth and eye, but now I am seeing a lot of similarity in their hip and how they tie in and nearly identical stances. They have identical tails and tail sets. It's really cute.

I'm off to SD for several days and won't have internet, so I hope everyone has a safe and happy week. I should have lots of pictures when I get back. I can't wait to see how Little Guns has grown.

'See' ya'll when I get home.

The 'kids' look great! I can't wait for my little man to shed out so we can see what color he is! He also suddenly became 'butt high' these last few weeks. Both mom and dad are tall and stocky and I can see his daddy's build and momma's low neck.

Have fun in SD!

It's really nice to see how they've grown so far. They are cute little QH's.

They are nice looking! And I love the tail set on Beretta! I wish Pat had a tail set like that - he picked up his momma's instead...oh well..

Glad they are getting settled in and you too!
