Not babies any more, the big 4 year olds...
« on: August 04, 2016, 08:01:50 PM »

Here are my two boys from Topper's first crop in 2012, so they are now 4 and geldings (gelded in 2014).
They aren't as fat as these pictures seem to show.

Oops, guess I should have labeled it for those that weren't there when they were born.
Both are by Topper, bay son of Buckeroos Top Cat.
Manny is the silver smokey black on the left; he's out of Bonny (cremello daughter of Little Kings Buckeroo God).  Monte is the grulla in the middle; he's out of Tana (granddaughter of Hilltop's Little Vegas).
And, on the right is Dakota, he's my first mini, another Buckeroo grandson; he's 12 this year, I think.

What a great photo , As i glanced over towards my PC screen I actually read the topic of the thread as " No more Babies"    Thank goodness that wasn't the case :)

I wear glasses for the computer - Might need to get my eyes tested lol

They are growing into  strapping young ladies and gentleman :)

I'm especially fond of Monte.  I only had 1 grullo colt born here, and Deb has him now since he was pure Falabella, and I just love their coloring!  So pretty!

If I breed them again, I have a shot at another, although a filly of any color next time from Tana would be nice.   Might not wait as long next time, perhaps will try pasture breeding again next summer.  give Topper an extra week to get all 3 girls.

Well, honestly, I'm not holding my breath either, as my grandkids would not be happy if I stopped breathing over a waiting on a long-ears baby, but I am crossing everything!!
