    I recently bought a 2017 stud colt, that o will be picking up in 4 weeks. The breeder has been wonderful in sending me pictures!
    I will post pictures and updates here!

    I currently plan to show him in halter (performance halter) until he goes to training for reined cow horse stuff.

    He has a bend or spot that is growing, I'm curious if maybe he will be a sooty palamino roan? received_1833116413668759.jpeg received_1833116393668761.jpeg received_1834682130178854.jpeg received_1839728399674227.jpeg received_1841088449538222.jpeg received_1841088402871560.jpeg

    I know a palomino who has Bend Or spots all over him. He isn't roan but he does have some white hairs.

    Aren't you jinxing him by calling him Trouble??!! :p

    Foals usually shed out darker the first time and then go light again. He may be a sooty 1 yr old but most likely will be pale as an adult.

    The Bend'or spot will stay. He may develop more if them.

    He has to earn a register of merit to be shown in performance halter. Just in case you don't know. And just in case he is registered aq ha.

    He is aqha. And I didn't know! I've never shown a horse in halter, so that's good to know!

    Requiring the ROM in performance keeps most of the true halter horses from just going in both, which gives the riding horses a chance to compete in halter. He is cute! My horse's barn name is also Trouble. Lol he earned his by being a little snot when he was born though. He's now quite easy going and sweet, so I like to think of the name as ironic now.

    Excited to watch this guy grow up!

    Very good idea AQHA came up with IMO. I know you wanted to show him before saddle training but go ahead and show him. I'd not hit expensive shows but exposure helps. I absolutely hate what halter classes have turned into anyway. Those horses couldn't run a quarter mile/work cattle or barrels to save their lives. Most IMO.
