Looking forward to some new pics of him Chanda  :)

He will be like a new horse every time he sheds out :)

Yes, he likely will.  Not sure how many sheds I'll see, as I'm debating selling him.  If the right home comes along, he's available.   Since I live in the sticks, he may just stay here.   :o

Post a new picture of him, and let me see.  I may have a few more questions when I see an updated picture of him.

I'll try to get one soon.   going to be very busy soon with harvest, Shayne did 10 acres today to get the combine up and running and he said it's looking really good.

I'll be looking forward to the update as well. ;-). It looks like at least one of his ears is outlined in white. It's going to be fun seeing him morph into a different color.

Both have white, but one just has an outline, the other looks dipped in white (well, the tip anyway).

Last chance for pictures for awhile, so a little overload on Spotty to hopefully get something good enough for his paperwork, I'm not drawing those spots.    His coat is soft, almost velvet like.  [Bliss's coat isn't as soft.]
Probably 2-3 posts worth of Spotty pics:
Three of them sort of shows his white ear

Some of these might be good enough for his paperwork, but I'll have to edit and find out.

Here are the rest, including a couple with barn kitten BlueToo.  [He looks like our housecat, Blue, we lost this spring/summer, so I'm calling him BlueToo.]   Shayne would like to bring this little kitty in, but the current 4 housecats would likely object.

He is beautiful Chanda.  And yes, he will continue to expand that white and will become a "near" leopard, probably keeping dark below the knees and some on the neck, but it appears his white is spreading, and we love to see that.

One handsome boy!!!

Thank you.  Love his white tipped ear, so cute.  Will have to be sure to note that on his paperwork and which ear.
he'll be a fun one to unwrap in the spring.

I'll have to go back and look at the first few pics and compare to now, a side-by-side as it were; I see him every day so not as noticeable for me.

How'd harvest time go Chanda? You said it looked like it might be good, I'm hoping it was. Spotty will be fun to watch when he sheds out next spring. It looks like so much of his current dark coloring will be gone...he may just end up with the extremities dark!

I have a question about hooves. Since he has the much more obvious appy stripes to his hooves, do you find that are harder than either white or black hooves? If I remember correctly, you trim your own. Do you even notice a difference in trimming the different colors?

Harvest was slow due to wet weather (we don't usually get so much fall rain), we just finished a couple days ago, but still have his dad's field to combine, weather permitting.
I've not really noticed a difference in hoof toughness between the colors.

Don't know how much, but I think Spotty is going to be for sale.  I still need to send in paperwork and that deadline is coming up fast, so I'll get that done, then probably do a little advertising.
