My pictures aren't as nice as Melinda's, as I don't show, so rarely have posed pictures, heck half the time, they aren't even groomed or clean; but here are a few of my babies that are adults now.

Most recent pic I have of Dolly, the pic is 2014; Dolly is a 2009 cremello out of Caddy and by Che` (only foal to date from either), and she is a chunky girl:

Manny, 2012 smoky silver black gelding by Topper out of Bonny (he's also a bit chunky and was being uncooperative for pictures last summer.
Manny - August 17, 2015 - right 1.jpg

Monte, 2012 grulla gelding by Topper out of Tana, pic from last summer:

I think they all look great!  I particularly like the grulla gelding, great build, would make a nice driver I bet!

Thank you, Melinda. He's my favorite of all my foals born. Manny was darling as a youngster, but Monte has matured nicer. If I ever get off my behind and get anyone started in harness, I'll let you know if he's any good.  :wink

Hmm...  the only 2016 photo of Bunny - born 2 April 2013.

Echo - "kissing" his podiatrist!  He was born on 10 April 2013.

Rio - born 17 April 2013.

Dandy was born 31 August 2013.

Yep, we like those "podiatrist" photos!  Dandy is finally larger than Rio, but I really think that Rio will do a spurt late next year as a 4 yr old and get up to 40" just like his full brother.  I've always been surprised by how "small" Dandy is, but  it's hard to compare too, when the 3 April kids were born 4 1/2 months before him.

 

No shed out pics or clipped pics.  Haven't had those in a while...  All of these guys retained their coats last year - only literally shedding out for about 1.5 months before "hairing" back up for the winter.  I didn't get many pics last summer when they were all shed out.

 

I can't remember if I shared the journey with the 2012 babies or not...

The "podiatrist" photos.....GREAT!  They've really grown and are so fun to see growing!  Thank you for sharing these pictures.  I can't believe how fast these little ones do grow!!

And what "journey" with the 2012 babies?

My sweet Annabelle. And her mommy. She has grown so fast.
I can't fix them. Don't know why they are upside down.
