Wadd, yesterday

Posted on April 20th, 2015 in General

I am in the USA for a few days, for the first time in two years. I am here for work reasons, but you can imagine I took advantage of the weekend to go see my horses. So Saturday, Darlene Summers and Jenny Krieg drove up with me to Pennsylvania to see the 7 (well, 6.5) I have there, and had a wonderful time talking horse on the way. As usual, my camera died on me half-way through the visit, and I have to rely on my friends’ photos.

Here is a photo of my Wadd, which Darlene too. He will be 4 years old this September. He is a slow grower, and Charles Craver told me today that the inbred ones are even slower growers than the others.

He had just rolled in the mud, and still had a lot of his winter coat. I still think highly of him, and hopefully he will keep improving and taking more after his sire, the glorious Triermain CF (whom I also saw today — what a privilege).

  1. All the bones are there, just need time to fill out the rest.

  2. That’s the boy! He is looking just right for a growing lad.

  3. I’m really pleased to see his progress.

  4. Re-reading my comment above, it sounds as though I was saying Wadd was thin, not what I meant. I was a nicely balanced conformation that will be even more wonderful when he matures!
