    I can totally relate to the way this foal has been raised....it's pretty par for the course for ranch babies. They're usually out on acres and acres of pasture, so their feet are usually similar to wild horses until they are caught while being trained to halter (usually a week or so) and they're brought into a smaller lot. I've looked at the ranch horses (adults) that don't get their feet trimmed ever, and I will admit, there are a couple that get a little long (not bad though) but some of them are literally exactly the way I try to trim my horse's feet...they just naturally wear like a mustang having to walk miles and miles to get to water, and meandering around the prairie. I'm always in awe of how good their feet seem to be, when I struggle along with my horses' feet, trimming religiously.

    I do feel that the ranches that raise foals like this should put more effort into a good deworming, supplementation and vaccination schedule (as well as working with them more...I'd much rather teach a 500 lb. horse to lift it's feet vs. a 1000 lb horse), but this is how many run their programs.

    So we ended up changing his name to “Bex” it just seemed to fit him better :)
    When I first bought Bex he was very skittish and afraid. I couldn’t get near him and when I did and got a halter and lead on he would rear up and try to bolt.
    He’s already come a long way I can now catch him, halter & lead fine. I can brush and love on him all over! He’s finally letting me pick up his feet and clean them, We’re not currently working on trailering and learning that the trailer is not a scary place to be! After taping him on level ground he measure to 14.2hh at the withers! :)

    I thought I’d post some pictures of his sire and dam & a few of him on the day he was born! :)

    Oh! No wonder he reminds me so much of Juno, it’s from his mama! I swear sun frost horses have such a particular look. I can be scrolling through Facebook and know right away when it’s a sun frost horse I’ve just gone past!?

    Love the new name and congrats on your progress with him :D

    I’m just so happy with this little colt I have to share! He went from running away when you tried to catch him, rearing up while on the lead always spinning his butt toward me (never kicking but always made sure I saw his hind end and knew it was there) and just extremely fearful. To letting me catch him in the pasture, roundpenning and turning in giving me two eyes each and every time I ask, I can yield his hind quarters a full 360°. Crack the whip next to him, throw it over his back, around his front and back legs and over his head without him moving a muscle. Leading really well & always always giving me two eyes instead of his hind end. He’s SUCH a quick learner and so so willing.

    This colt has seriously stolen my heart.
    At what age do y’all cut your stud colts? He hasn’t dropped yet so I have to wait for now. We waited to cut my husbands until he was 2 & 1/2 due to the fact he just wasn’t studdish at all! I’ve heard waiting to cut them until they’re 2 will help them bulk up more and cutting them early makes them grow taller??
