I was admiring Vernon just now as I was taking care of him post gallop. I've been wanting to take a conformation shot of him for awhile because I really feel like he's grown up a lot in the last couple of months. And boy has he!!!

Here he is a couple of weeks after we got him, as a late 3 year old.

Here is about 6 months later, spring of his 4 year old year.

And here he is today, post gallop, 6 years old.

Cute...he always was cute but they go from that dough boy---kind of soft looking--into looking like an athlete.

Wow! Intellectually you know that's what happens but it always seems so magical to me when it actually does!

Thanks for reminding me to go get some more pictures of my young man...

What a beauty! You can see his handsomeness and cuteness in that 4-yr-old pic! Now at 6, double those.:) Imagine how he'll be at 8!

I think that's one of the coolest things, actually. He has changed so much (except he still totally has his "little boy" face, which I don't think he'll ever grow out of), but I know he is only going to keep maturing and getting fitter, stronger, and even more handsome. This is a big part of why I love bringing them along....watching them turn from babies into big, bad, grown up event horses is so much fun!

Kate, Millbrook!!!! Then you can see him in person again (he is soooo different...he was pretty subdued that winter since he was half terrorized by Zeke and Paco the entire time! He is a complete hoot now!). And I can see you and your new cuties???? :yes:

YES!! I can't wait! Hopefully both ponies will be making a trip out to beautiful Dutchess County so you can meet them too :)
