Age: 2 Years & 9 Months (33 Months)
Height Gain: He gained half an inch! Finally. I was beginning to think he would never grow anymore lol. Out of curiosity I measured his haunches too and they were 15.1hh even so apparently the funky stage he's been going through was his front catching up to his rear. :)
Weight: His heart girth measurement is 69½ and his length measurement is 72, so according to the Equine Weight Calculator he still weighs 1039lbs (it won't do half inches so he's probably a bit more than that).
Weight Gain: No gain.
Progress: Chrome has been sort of busy with Mango Minster 2012, so we didn't get much done. We did play around with the saddle and new blankets. He's losing his baby teeth. Other than that not much. The weather finally got cold so I'm attempting to stave off hibernation. :D
Goals: This really depends on the weather . . . I would like to get the mounting block built so we can practice lining up with it and me jumping around him on it. General desensitization in preparation for our first ride. I really think he's basically ready. He's so cool about everything. If I think of anything I'll work on it. I'm planning to buy some new books with the gift certificates that Chrome won during Mango Minster so we should have some fun stuff to work on when I get done reading them. Don't worry I'll share it with you all when they get here. I'm pretty excited. Anyway, here are his pictures from February the last two years.
