    Talking Up-Date On Colt From "Is The Market Really This Bad" Thread

    I was playing with the boy and wanted to get some pictures to you guys. He has turned out even better than hoped for! This is the Premium GOV colt that was offered on the net for $2,500 earlier this year. There was a huge thread about it. I'm posting before and after photos. Enjoy!

    The first picture was taken on his date of purchase in January of this year. He is standing beside one of my other colts that is less than a month older. We've come along way. I would still like to see a little more weight, but he's growing like a mad-man and I don't want to cause OCD.

    We're thrilled how he's turned out. He is so sweet and laid-back. Nothing bothers him. I pulled his mane and clipped him all by myself and he didn't move a hoof the entire time. I'm so glad we got him. He's special (in a good way!).

    what difference!! way to go for you to see his potential!

    Hope for lots of sucess later in life!

    PS
    The right diet with sufficient proteins are a must and with turnout should not cause OCD unless genetically predisposed!

    Wow - all I can say is that is so cool! He looks a little stunted in the before photo, but has he ever grown beautifully!

    He is gorgeous, keep us updated on his progress!
