Colton: Three Months Old

A fan asked for a “Colton” colt update, and the request was perfect timing. I just got a couple of new videos (which I combined below) and pictures! So, let the update begin. At three months old, Colton has very good manners. He leads and even lifts his feet so he will learn to be a good boy for the farrier. Just like Andi trained Shasta and Sunny (from Thick as Thieves, chapter 11):

Andi drew alongside Shasta. “I’m going to pick up your foot, so stand still,” she warned her colt. Sliding her hand firmly along Shasta’s front leg, she gave him the signal to lift his foot.

“He obeys well,” Melinda said. “You’ve been working hard on his training.”

“Nothing annoys Jake more than a skittish horse during shoeing,” Andi replied, scraping the pick along the colt’s hoof. “I heard him scorch Hector last week when he had to replace a shoe.” She cringed at the memory. Hector’s horse had danced all over the place, just missing the ranch’s farrier with a swift kick. “My colts are never going to give Jake trouble.”

Colton is 8.1 hh at twelve weeks (he will be three months September 6. Minnie Mae is only 9.0 hh. Scroll down to enjoy the pictures and then watch Colton live in the video I put together. Ask questions, and my daughter (or I) hopefully can answer them. In answer to his coloring questions, Colton is a dark bay. He is losing his white baby hair, and his legs are coming in a shade darker than his body. The white spots on his face is still baby hair too. He is going to be gorgeous. His tail is already getting long.

He’s nearly as tall as Minnie Mae Mama now!
Colton loves his grain!

    1. Thanks, eagle-eye Anonymous. The deed is done. If you only knew how many SPAM comments land in my Spam folder, and many are just like what you caught. I’m sad that WordPress did not catch that one. Usually it’s automatically filtered, but apparently one (out of thousands) sneaked through. Glad to have your eyes to help me. I never read them cuz it’s pages and pages. It’s a BOT, so that’s why none of it makes sense but they throw bad words in there, which is usually how WP filters. Keep up the good work!


  3. Aww Colton is so big and fast now!
    Do Colton’s owners have chickens? (really random question, sorry.) I saw a chicken in the background of the second video 🙂


  4. Can you pls do Chad and the Lost Mine next, Mrs M.? Also i think it would be a good idea to be able to comment on Audio Shot Stories page.


  5. Oh! I guess I forgot to enable the comments on the Audio Stories page. Thx for the heads up. I have all of the Tales stories recorded so sure, I can record the Lost mine one sometime. But although the other stories are recorded they are not yet edited and that takes a long time…..


    1. Except for the last story, Adios, Jeffrey Sullivan. Not sure I’ll do that one. I have not edited then yet though. I have…. I think three already uploaded and the posts scheduled. Once a month you will get a new audio story.
