Santa brought me a baby! With pictures!
Santa brought me a baby - and by baby, I mean 2 year old. :lol: Bred by one of our very own fantastic COTH'ers, though she lurks more than she posts. :)
He's by Ironman, out of a TB mare, La Sirenita. Incidentally, his dam is *vaguely* related to my big TB gelding (Pleasant Colony a few generations back), which I'm always a fan of, though it's influence that far back is debatable at best. :lol: He's maybe 15.1, 15.2 at best right now but is expected to finish out around 16.2. He's going through an awkward stage right now, but there is clearly a star in there just waiting to shine! Apologies for the mud and dirt, but it's wayyy too cold for a bath right now. He's got two socks behind and a star/snip (for now).
Here's the little guy: Hide
Cute faces with Mr. Heinz
I'm so excited I could squeal. :lol: He's super level headed and has great manners given his age. I suspect he'll keep that fabulous Ironman temperament and be an easy one to start when the time comes (not for quite a while!).
