    Its a nasty day outside today so I thought I would post some pictures of my precious boy to keep me busy until my hubby gets home from work.

    These pictures are of my 2007 Andalusian/Arabian cross gelding. He was sired by my stallion, El Tigre CDP, and out of my Arabian mare, CLA Gin Whiz.
    His registered name was suppose to be LF Helios Magica ( Magic Ice ) but I am up in the air. I really like the name LF Wicked Ale too. If anyone has any thoughts on that, I would love to hear them.
    Anyway, here he is ( from Birth to one year ).

    I have a video of him too, it was taken Nov 07. He was sporting his winter coat but it is still a fun little video.



    I am really looking forward to getting him going under saddle. I hope to start some light ground training with him this summer and start his under saddle work next year ( his three year old year ).
    My real dream though is to take him to the Andalusian show in Virginia this summer. I would really like to show him in some halter classes. I just don't know if he will stand up to the competition.

    Oooooh, do you know what you are in for? [​IMG] We took in two Arab/Andy rescues for a while. They are SMART horses. Both of them turned out really well, but they are not for the faint of heart. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your kind words. I am very proud of my little guy.

    Bearded Chick - yeah, I know what I am in for. This is the second time I have bred this mare to my stallion and the previous colt was just as nice.
    I have a few pictures of him that I can share.

    This is LF Jose Cuervo
