    She had a very healthy little "pintaloosa" colt [​IMG] He is sired by our leopard appy, Reeno... This was an accident, and I had given her the "morning after" shot, but now I'm glad it didn't work [​IMG] He is just the cutest little thing! He will make a great little show pony once he's old enough - very fancy! Pony did everything herself, I simply went out to do a routine check on her this morning and there he was, standing perfectly dry and content! She didn't even have wax at 1:30 in the morning when I checked her, but by 7:00am when I went back out there he was - Needless to say, we were ecstatic when we saw him!

    This is "Daddy"... Obviously the appy and not my Belgian [​IMG] Reeno is 15.0 hands and Pony is 12.3hh, so the baby should be a nice sized pony seeing as how he takes after Pops so much [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] I haven't made a Belgaloosa. To be honest I don't do crosses because they typically can't be registered. In this little guys case though, I can "hardship" register him in the Appaloosa registry because he has obvious Appaloosa markings.

    Every one of those horses are beautiful and well muscled and kept. You are so lucky.
