Chester Day 1 - Just a few hours old. Tall, big boned and lots of feather on the back of his legs already.

Chester Day 5 - It's been raining and we are all wet. He is so curious, even though mom says "no", he keeps coming up for little scratches. Check out his short back, angled shoulder and elegant neck. This boy has it all!

Chester Day 10 - Chester received his first lessons in leading today! He was just getting the hang of it when I quit. The next day lead trining just clicked with him. "You mean follow you, ok"! Smart little guy!

Chester Day 23 - I took Maia for a stroll in the yard today. She got to eat some good grass before I cut it. Chester had a wonderful time running around the yard and he was actually playing with the dogs. They were following each other around and sniffing noses.

Chester 18 Oct 09) - Have I said how much I love this boy? He loves attention and follows me like a puppy dog in the pasture.! We have been working on cross-tieing, picking his feet (already had first filing from the farrier) and he is now confident enough to be lead on walks in the yard without mom. I swear, he will do anything for a few scratches or a peppermint. He shed some baby hair, but it's starting to get cold so his winter coat is coming in before shedding completely. His mane is starting to show lighter hairs too, so I am sure it will go flaxen....and talk about built, look at that butt!

Chester turned 3 months on Thanksgiving. Thinking ahead, it was time to introduce him to one of the other horses so he could make a buddy. Tequila is my 3 year old QH gelding. He is very laid back and used to being with the playful Hairy and Halfpint. I thought he would be a good choice. They will spend time together, so when Mom is taken away, Chester will have a friend to keep him company and secure while weaned.

06 Feb 10 - Chester is 5+ months, being weaned and is doing really well. Only occasionally will he nicker wondering where mom is (she is taking this harder). The past month has been nothing but rain (2+ inches yesterday). Too cold for a bath, but a bit of brushing helped. Everything including Chester has a red tint from the GA clay.
