This is the first filly we had born this year...
She was born back in June, but this is the first (and only) picture I have seen of her. I'm guessing she is about 30 days old in this picture.
Her dam is one of our King/Leo bred mares...
This is a mare I won some halter and showmanship classes with and she was a nice rope and ranch horse as well. A lot of power off of the get go, but lacked any long-distance speed, so I never bothered to try her on the barrel pattern.
I do believe our stallion is taking care of the speed department. That boy can mortally fly. Gunner and Beretta seem to have inherited that. I'm sure Shooter has speed to match, but he seems more inclined to slow lope. (slaps forehead)...The ONE horse I was really hoping to be my next barrel horse and he acts like he wants to do western pleasure. Oiy Vey!
Neither the filly or the mare are mine and I won't have to bring her out here to gentle and halter-break. My oldest brother actually gets to lay claim to this filly and he is pretty excited about her.
From the sounds of it, my filly is almost an identical match.
I can live with that. ;-)
