I wanted to do a countdown, but couldn't really think of anything (guess I should have started planning sooner). What I came up with is question and answers and a review of his life so far. So I'll share pictures and stories (maybe even entries from his offline training journal) from his life, since some people maybe haven't read the whole blog (not to mention it's fun to see baby pictures), and you guys can ask all of your questions (especially if you have any I might have missed and haven't answered or if you have a good question you think other people might like to see the answer to) and I'll answer them in the next post (please keep them relevant to Chrome or horses in general including Faran and Zep).
So we will start out with his birth. His mom is a really awesome 14.3hh flea-bitten gray Arabian mare named Beebee. When I met her it was obvious Chrome's breeder loves her. She is so sweet and from the stories I heard she is an awesome trail horse. We're making plans to eventually take Chrome to horse camp so we can all trail ride together (hopefully this fall, I'm so excited!). I'll definitely be getting some more pictures of Beebee when I see her again. His sire is a gorgeous 16.2hh Friesian stallion named Hertog Jan v.d. Paddensteeg or Jan (pronounced yawn) for short. You can visit his website here at the 4-13 ranch.
Chrome's breeder sent me a CD with his papers that had baby pictures on it. He was soooo cute!! I wish I could have known him when he was so young. :)
So if you have any questions please leave them in the comments and I will answer them in the next post. :) If you have any ideas to make the countdown more fun let me know that too please!
