    I'd been meaning to make Hero her own thread once she was weaned, and then promptly forgot! I figured it would make more sense updating on her own thread as she grows up rather than in Marvel's foaling thread. So, just the two months late, here is Hero's official thread!

    Chic Little Hero (Hero) was born April 26, 2017. She is by Cruze Mode and out of my mare, Marvel (Pretty Baby Bo). Hoping she'll make a nice reined cow horse/all around mount for me.

    Next post will be some of my favorite baby pictures, then an update!

    And here she is now (filthy, and fully embracing the fuzzy and awkward weanling stage :rofl:), at almost 8 months old:

    She's pretty much just growing up now and being handled for basic, day to day stuff (leading in and out, getting used to being stalled overnight, playing with the other young horses-her other weanling friend, a long yearling filly, two year old filly, and four year old filly, getting her feet done regularly, etc). I'll pony her off of Marvel once a week or so, just to get her out and thinking. She'll trot along next to us nicely and last weekend she followed us through some pretty deep (over knee high) water. She's still an absolute blast to work with, pleasant and curious and friendly!

    So beautiful! I do not see anything awkward about her.

    I know!! Where did the time go?! In one hand, I feel like they were just born, but in the other hand I'm so impatient to get to start them!

    Thank you!! I just adore her (and the parents), but I'm definitely a bit biased, haha!

    Thank you!! Last weekend she was looking a bit more like a collection of parts (and had almost a three inch difference between hip and withers haha), but she's looking more balanced this week! She was always just such a graceful, pretty foal, so now that she's more of a fluffy, cute weanling, it's a change!

    Hero shot up over the holidays; she's about 12.2 at the withers and 13.1 at the hip now. She and Marvel had a bit of fun enjoying the nice weather, hanging out together, and running around like maniacs for a bit yesterday.
