My first ever homebred foal is now 3, and starting to do some light work. I am so pleased with his attitude, especially as he is a colt, but he just seems so eager to learn, and able to pick things up really quickly. He will not be ridden until the end of this year, and even then it will only be very light hacking over the winter, to be schooled on properly as a 4yo. He is so responsive to my voice, and will happily walk, trot, canter and stand. We are hoping to grade him in October, so have started schooling him in a jumping lane, with just poles on the ground for now. He took to coloured poles straight away, and showed us what a fantastic jump he has! He is going out to some shows this year in hand, his first one is this weekend, so I will try and get some updated pictures for you - he is the foal in the bottom right of my signature.

He's out of my mare Evy (Ayemkay Evin Star) and by Mars (bred by HM Queen). Mars died before my little man was born, so he is one of the last, and I am told the last colt to be kept entire.

You've just cheered Kerry up - she absolutely loves bay horses with white tails and hasn't seen one for years. Good luck with him - hope you do well.
