Chrome's Monthly Progress Report

I normally try to face him parallel with the road because of the slope but the sun was too high and he would have been in shadow. So in this picture he's facing downhill and the quality isn't great because I used continuous shooting. I might try to get more pictures tonight. He wasn't cooperating because his new brother was neighing to him. :) They haven't met up close because we're keeping the new horse separate long enough to get him dewormed and to see if he gets sick or anything. Then we will move his round pen down into Chrome's pasture so they can get to know each other. :)

Date: 6-19-11
Age: 25 Months
Height: 15.1hh
Height Gain: He didn't grow any this time. Now that he's two his growth rate has slowed.
Weight: The weight tape says 860lbs . . .
Weight Gain: . . . which means he gained twenty pounds!

Progress: I have started doing some clicker training with him again when I have time. I hope things slow down soon because I'm tired of not having time to mess with him. I also introduced him to ground driving for the first time and he did great. :)

Goals: I would like to work on ground driving again and definitely do some clicker training. I may have to take him into the very back of the pasture though because he's going to be distracted with his new brother in sight. I'm not going to try to plan on too much until they get used to each other. :) As soon as the new guy goes into the pasture with Chrome I'll definitely start working on taking him for walks more often so he doesn't get too buddy bound. :)


  1. He's really grown up! he looks like a horse instead of a youngster now. His coloring is so interesting too, very pretty. I was thinking "Stout" or "Moose" for the new guy :-). I hope he turns out for you guys. He's really a good lookin' guy.

  2. Gosh, he's about as big as my full grown horses.

    Looks like his ears and tail are turning gray first. I love his steely gray color.
