We've officially named him POWER BALL but I still call him "Pike".
UPDATE: above is "Pike" this week 3/9/11
A very cold March day. See video beneath. He is now 15.2, maturing well and
will be two next month.
These are current pictures of Pike taken 11/18
These are older pictures of Pike following.
I have followed this gelding since birth. We dubbed him the "power colt" at birth because nothing out moved him out in the field. The owner brought him in last month to separate him from the herd mentality that all yearlings have. We do this to encourage handling by humans. Although he took a bit more convincing than others, (not that he's a difficult horse, some just take a bit more time - its a matter of two weeks added slowly moving the horse up) I'm told he's now lunging well. We will be going out on the 30th to get more video of him.
We'll get a current measurement on him too.
Again, this will be the performance horse. I believe he could go any discipline.
Take a look of some recent pictures above and stay tuned for more updated video on him soon.
The 1/2 Friesian colt, out of a black Percheron/Morgan mare 15.3 is listed for sale at weanling time. Above is a pictures of him at 2 mos and now he's matured into a very correct yearling. You can't deny the big bone structure, the shorter back...the defined definition of a eventing/dressage champion. This colt will move and shake the show circuit in the right hands. We're offering him now because this Frisian cross between the breeders Percheron/Morgan mares go quickly because of their outstanding confirmation and agility.
This colt is due to be gelding in May 2010. Our photos of him (5/10) above show how quiet this colt was for being taken out of the yearling herd. He stood quietly tied and managed to lead him nicely for the photos.
He currently stands at 14.1.
This colt is offered at $3500. All pricing is negotiable.
This is a video we took in December on a 20 below day. :)
NEW short video on Pike a freezing 23 degree March day.
