Bright has a Big Back End Now

Its disproportionate now. He's got a big ass. I have to think that's a good thing. Lots of acceleration in a big assed horse.

He's got a few cuts and scrapes on his legs too. He must be motoring around and getting into trouble. Isn't that what colts do? Sort of as a rule.


May 26, 2008 - Memorial Day

Bright got daring today and decided that he wanted to try a carrot. Here he is taking his first nibble. I don't think he has back teeth yet - so he just bit the tip off and rolled it around in his mouth before swallowing it. But he liked it well enough to keep coming back so we fed him the tips of the carrots for an hour. He's still adverse to being caught though - but he was much friendlier than last time. I was talking to Pete and Evelyn for a few minutes about the upcoming CARMA poker party in Del Mar and he and Lady came up behind me and started pestering me for carrots. Lady shoved me around and he nipped at my pants and got me in the calf. He's still nursing from Lady Marquise - but I don't think that should last too much longer.
