Here is a better view of the little colt you saw peeking out behind his mother from the last post! He is a Tennessee Walker and named Picasso! He is owned by Paulina at Blue Poppy Farm here in Aiken, SC.
He to me almost looks like a painting! I love the different colors of his coat. I was told that he is shedding out his baby fur. It was interesting to see the different highlights he has, so he almost appears as a "horse of a different color" (OZ) in each photo. Loved his soft fluffy mane. The thick fur in his ears. The prickly chin hairs! Who knew they are born to perfection and God sure didn't cut corners on such a masterpiece. I like to think that he is deep in thought about his new life. So much to learn! He is so attached to his Mother, and she is teaching him about life every single second. The bond that they share together was miraculous to watch. I have never been around a young horse before, and I definitely was in awe. Smart whippersnapper! He was moving my feet (in horse terms this means if they can make YOU move, they are in charge and the alpha. Same as in a herd, the horse that can move the other horses away from food, a spot of grass, or just for the fun of it, is usually the horse in charge. There is a pecking order too, to a herd.) Back to what I was saying, he was moving me and I didn't even realize he was! Marleen, his care taker was laughing and said, "first Laurie you were over here, then you were over there, and made a big circle over there!" "HE MOVED YOUR FEET!" She got a big kick out of that and I did too. A little horse with a big horse inside! I think I will be sharing more of these photo's here on the daily photo before unveiling the entire gallery. Hope you like him! Would you let him move your feet?
