Bright is on his own now. Lady Marquise went back to the farm to hang out with Queen of Paris. Bright's job is now to grow up big and strong. Here he is with his pals. He has nice big flat knees. Still a little skinny and lanky, but looking more horse like every day. He's got good room to run, and when it rains or gets hot, he's got a run in to get out of the elements. Legacy Ranch is definitely a nice place to live. He has been halter broke, but he won't start to train for another year. During that time, he will just eat and run around.


Bright is now a part of some juvenile gang of chestnuts in his 10 acre pasture.

Its funny to see. There are three chestnuts and four brown/black horses. They stand apart in groups from each other like 6th graders on the playground. I think Bright is the leader of his little band. Let me put it this way, when I would try to catch him to give him a carrot, he would run off and the other red horses would follow. The nice thing about this exercise was that Bright seems to handle the wet grass really well. Great stride. Nice turn of foot. He's the best turfer out there. In this photo, he is the horse on the outside with the strip of white down his face.
