You could name it Silver Star. Silver if it is going to stay that color and Star for Fourth of July. It makes up a cute name I think.
New Mini Colt (horse) - Page 4
I like the name Indie for Independence. Just Sayin'.
Don't worry about a name right now. All of my colts when born are named "SON", then they help pick their own name by personality. With all the boys I have had, sometimes it is hard to remember who I have that I am working with. So they ALL answer to "Son" and their own barn name. The reason I say that is when you have a dozen Chocolate/ Flax mane and tail and half of them are geldings or stallions you need them to know and mind you no matter what. It also makes it much easier for your vet and farrier to calm your boy down. And all of my mares and fillys are called "GIRL" along with their barn name. I start and train all of my own horses and it makes it so much easier for me when schooling more than one horse a day.
Beautiful horses Maye, I am a fan of gaited, my paso fino is 27 years old and still going strong, but have looked in the Rockies for when the time comes (I really need to face th facts that the time is coming!)
Here are some shots from today, the second shows the marks on his rear. or the first!
If you are going to start looking. I would suggest now is a great time. Rocky prices are at an all time low, you can find a fantastic horse for pennies on the dollar.
BTW, just a few months ago a multi- international champion mare in western,saddleseat, and trail multi year winner. Also in competition on the ACTHA trail trials. Sold for $4500.00, two years ago I know they turned down over 50K for her. She is a been and done that kind of mount.
I know what is coming with your old PF, I just lost my old foundation mare a few months ago. She was a least 28 YO, at registration time. She came off the mountain top in Ky. was put under saddle as an adult, certified and that was her birthday. I had a bit of living history, she was 1 of 33 that started the Rocky Mountain Horse Breed. But I still have one of her daughters.
Ride the glide.......
Was out of town for weekend, and had a little scare. Night before I left went out and his nose was covered in yellow snot (it was 6 pm, I am flying out at 6 am!), call vet, they run out. Normal temp, heartrate and repiration, lungs were clear. Thing upper resp because of color of snot, hit him with penn. so twice a day while I was gone my 'caretaker' had to give hm shots, he was actually cleared up and driy at 4 am friday am when I checked him the next am, and was fine all weekend, except now getting leary of people because of shots. Today to be last day of meds, I got a call this am and he was snottty again. I got home and check him, call vet. He wants me to move him to a different pasture (one is is in is very weedy), see it it clears up, but Iwent out to move them and he was fine??? Could it be he is eating something he is allergic to, or he spends time in a certain part of the field and gets snotty, then gets out and clears up?
But he seems fine, will get some pictures this evening, he runs very fast for a little guy!
Learning towards Indy for a name, but my caretaker calls him smokey!
I really like Indy..... I just know so many named Smokey that have the chocolate color.
