Baby Boo was born in April. He's gone from...





...to....





He's a really gentle, sweetheart and very amenable.... but then his parents are the same so thankfully he seems to have inherited their genes!!!

Ohh lovely babies :) would add mine but on my phone. I do have a question though!

My two are june babies and neither of them have shown any signs of dropping their ballys yet! Is this normal? As I've seen some if yours are already gelded!?

I can only show you a head shot of him now at 9 months as he is definitely fugly as a total package!


But here he is at 7 or 8 months in the snow...


He decided on our walk today to get down and roll in a pile of crunchy leaves. Bet I looked really peculiar holding the lead rope of a fugly orange thing rolling in crunchy orange leaves. Wish I'd got a photo.

He was gelded 2 weeks ago and is still looking a bit gunky up there. Is this normal?

My little man is 1next week and he is still keeping one ball nice and warm up there :( His field mate (a month younger) dropped both of his months ago and is booked in for gelding on Monday. The vet is going to sedate mine to see if the elusive 'testicle number two' will make an appearance but I'm not holding my hopes up :(

Mine is defo still a hairy gremlin



I dont have this much grass, I ran so low they got turned out in my father's orchard for rare apple trees- which was fine until they went for the fruit trees' bark. Ho hum, hes in Oz anyway so perhaps when he gets back spring growth will have covered the teethmarks on the trees??????? Fingers crossed!



and down here in Cornwall this one bit of snow one morning was all we had! ....and before anyone feels jelous we MORE than made up for it in rain and mud.

He's also still a hairy yak! As you can see from the pics he spends most of his days looking a bit drunk and sleepy or scratching!

Hoping to go to a few local shows for a bit of experience, really don't want to trim the baby highlights from his ears or mane though :eek:

Here's some pictures of my little filly- she's a welsh D. I'm hoping she'll make at least 14.2hh - at the moment she's about 13hh at the withers and 13.2hh at the bum.

At 1 week old


and now at 11 months old


Some days she looks in proportion and others I just look at her and think 'what the hell are you?!' :p so I've decided not to look at her too much until she's about 3.

Here's some more of Ava with her weaning buddy/companion/Uncle Charlie :D

She looks even bigger next to him. And I think they are clones :eek:











And she appears to be getting a grey tail. Money on her roaning out eventually??









(Sorry for the varying photo size!!! They are taken on my phone and I cannot work out this new photobucket. Hate it!!)

No pics as on work computer but Vandal is standing around 14.2hh at 10 months old :eek:

He is exceedingly bum high and bodywise hitting the yearling fuglies but managing to fill out a 5'3" rug with no problem. Thankfully he is hidden under the rug most of the time and his head is staying attractive so he doesn't scare the neighbours. I had him nut cutletted before weaning him and as soon as he was healed up he was weaned.

Living out 24/7 with my friend's herd which includes two colts the same age so he has good playtimes
