This little boy has the most awesome Arab-looking head. Big, big eyes that are very wide set, a great dish to his face and a tiny muzzle. His cannon bones measure 7.25". Click here for a chart that helps you determine mature height. His upright head carriage and floaty trot are making him a hard one to part with. Warrior, his sire, is an amazing driving horse and we are hoping that this boy follows in his foot steps.
As he matures, his coat is darkening and dappling like his mother's and his mane and tail are lightening to a flaxen color.
This fun update came from Flame's owner!
Betsy came last night for a
visit & as she was leaving we decided to walk out through the front door
so she could visit Flame on her way out. Flame greeted us with his usual
happy whinny. He came right over to the fence however after only a few
pats and rubs he quickly moved away & into the center of his pen. He was
staring intently at something in the dark, body tensed, head way up &
ears sharply pointing forward. He would then turn his head & look at us
& then return to watching or listening to whatever had his attention. I
tried calling him back over to us but he stayed where he was. We heard
dogs barking in the distance & assumed that was what had him so
transfixed. Betsy & I then started walking on the sidewalk towards her
truck & Flame became upset. About that same time we heard an ominous
sound! We couldn't see it but could hear it clearly! It was very loud &
very close! It was a rattlesnake! We quickly retreated into the house,
grabbed K.C. & a shovel. We went out through the garage this time & the
snake was there to meet us. He was angry & rattling like crazy. It was a
scary sight! Needless to say, the poor rattler did not survive its
encounter with a mini horse, truck tires, a shovel, two women & a
teenage football player. We felt bad for the snake but a friend of mine
wants to preserve the head & tail in resin so I said come & get it.
