Frank has always started his young horses by two....especially a colt that was to stay a stallion. He does NOT drill on them or work them hard. I rode a lot of young horses for him a long time ago....most didn't even break a sweat with the "work" they do...but they do learn the basics and about having a job. Most of these horses thrive on it and became very good sport horses with long careers (horses that I knew are old horses now). Look at the LONG career that Gem had as a prime example of a horse that came up through Frank's program.
Lovely looking colt....I think it would be VERY cool if Laura got to take him to the highest levels. And I might have the perfect mare for him in the near future.....depending on how much it costs to breed to him.
