Bright has a very handsome body. Good bone structure. Long legs. Nice high croup. He's a good looking athletic horse. Its nice to be able to look at him in comparison to other colts his age. He is bigger and stronger than most. And there is something else about him that is interesting to me. He is not a frivilous horse. He is no nonsense. He doesn't want any part of goofing off with other foals. He has one friend that I coudl tell and he nibbled on his mane. Other than that, he wants to just hang out with Lady.

I went for a visit on Sunday July 20, 2008, and Bright and Lady M are now in the front pasture at Legacy with about 40 other foals and mares. Its so fun to see them all out together. Its colts only. The fillies are in another pasture because the colts like to rough-house. Except for Bright - who reminds me a little of shy sweet boy in a sandbox with feisty Irish kids from big families. Bright stays away from the trouble makers. And I suppose that's good because he will avoid getting hurt. Still - he had a bunch of bite marks and scratches on him. Lady and Bright are still a team and he is still suckling. But he's also nibbling grass and eating carrots. He's looking like a horse now. Just a small version.
