He is the cutest thing ever, but a huge tubba-tubba lard, I've got my work cut out for me! Currently taking bets on his weight! I'm guessing around 1800 with a BCS of at least an 8, but closer to a 9. I didn't have my weight tape on hand, but I'm going to bring it with me and see exactly how fat he really is this weekend. And I think he's already about 16 hands, which means he's going to be taller than Katy!
He hasn't gotten worked with as much as Katy had when I first got her. He's halter broke, but not very well as he doesn't really respect or understand pressure on the halter. He's incredibly spooky, but so was Katy. We'll work through it. He kinda loads in the trailer ok and he'll pick up his feet well. He's got the same beautiful footsies that Katy had which is nice that they don't need any help. After our photo shoot I was leading him back to the barn and almost got run over by him because one of my brother's turkeys gobbled.

He has adapted really well and is already mega-attached to Grady. While it's not great that he's attached at the hip, it's better than the alternative of Grady not accepting him and beating the you-know-what out of him. This is the first time that Grady has ever been pastured with a gelding - he still thinks he's a stallion and routinely challenges the geldings across the street - so I was worried that he'd not want another gelding in his pasture. My parents said that he almost immediately accepted him though! I think he's just glad to have a buddy :)

After running around the pasture with
the new guy in tow, she went for a dip in the
nasty pond. Silly pup!
