I just got official word that I get to be the new mom of a weanling colt (to be gelded) He isn't registable except maybe WCMHR. His daddy wasn't registered
Thats OK because he will be a good "pet"
Once he gets settled in I will start the adventure of a show quality mini. For now I get to sit back and wait in excitement for him to get weaned. I will pick a name after he gets here. I will send pics as soon as I figure out how
Thanks for letting me share.

Yea!!! How exciting for you. Geldings are soooo much fun.

When you settle on his name be sure and let us all know. What color is he? How old is he? Tell us more.

He is a Buckskin colt. Born on June 7 2005. Easy to handle, ties, has had feet done, working on leading. Loves to be brushed and scratched. Very friendly. Will be ready to leave in October. Dam is 34 inches tall, stud unknown. So she says I can pick him up mid September. He is already eating ans drinking well. She is going to send me a CD of all the pictures she has taken of him since his birth. I am really excited
I will update often...Ya'll will probably get sick of me and all my questions.

To your left
What a pretty boy! Sounds like he's found a great home, and you have a wonderful new friend.

One thought...my colt was weaned at 3 months, as he was drawing down his dam; he was a bit depressed at first, and it has been a challenge to keep him at a proper weight -- he's had some major growth spurts with which I've had to catch up in his diet.

Hard to say how much of this is from early weaning, but I've heard many say that this can be very stressful, so just be sure to keep a close eye on him. If he's an only mini, remember that you'll be his herd, and he will need tons of attention!

Good luck, and have fun with your new little one!
