How lovely :)

Does he have a problem with his back legs, or is it the soft ground that makes them look very low in the pastern area?

He is quite low at the moment, discussed it with the vet and he felt that with some exercise they would improve... if I don't feel they are then will call the vet back out ... I was worried too

No name yet open to suggestions :D

yes he does look as if he will be bigger than mum, no idea of dad tho so will be exciting to see what happens

mind you mums dam was 15hh she's about 13.2 :confused:

Gorgeous little foal! I'm not nitpicking, just an eency bit of concern, watch with the strings you have hanging in your shelter (can't make out what it is sorry) foals can be a bit silly as you probably know. Congrats and hope all goes well :)

My thoughts ^^^^ regarding the twine... but sure you know what your doing.

Have to say what a little sweetie love the markings on him, do hope all works out well for you all.

Soon as you figure out a character you will be able to think of a name... I know someone that has just had a foal too and have called it Sonny... little appropriate considering the sun was out today :D
