Nicholas was born on April 7, 2013, so small, weighing only 15-20 lbs.He will most likely stay small like his parents. Mom is a beautiful 31 in. bay and dad is a 33 1/2 in. red roan. Mom is registered with the AMHA; dad is double registered with the AMHA and AMHR. Nicolas is not registered, but he can be.
Nicholas' coat is changing to a soft reddish brown now, suggesting that he might turn out to be a red dun, a bay or a buckskin - only time will tell, but it's fun to guess.
His conformation is great, he has a stately head-up stance, expressive talk-to-you eyes and a beautiful refined head.
He's all boy, so busy finding out how everything works, what everyone else is doing, what happens if he steps on the rake, and anything else that looks adventuresome.
He is so fun to be around and to be with. He loves to run and play, to see how high he can jump and how fast he can run, not to speak of the great fun in climbing on the backs of the other minis or nipping at their legs. Never a dull moment, except for special times for a drink or a nap.
He has a great curiosity characteristic of fast learners.
We have begun weaning but he is already eating full helpings of grain, hay, alfalfa cubes and any other treat you want to give him. He is drinking well and has a great pasture buddy he loves to spend time with. He is a very adaptable little guy, accepting all this change without signs of stress. Our goal is to complete his weaning by mid-November.
He is happy, healthy and full of energy. He has a great personality, very friendly, very approachable, very laid back. Like both mom and dad, he is mild mannered and easy to be around and to train.
He is progressing in his training; he has learned not to nip at me like he does his mom and other horses(except for an occasional mistake); he stopped trying to kick at people and reserves that for the other horses now; he has learned not to turn his back to you in disrespect; he will come from the pasture when you call his name; he will follow you around the yard or the pen, he has learned to eat from a bucket, he can eat from your hand now without biting, he knows what "no" means.
He is uptodate on vaccinations, worming, hoof trimming and coggins report.
He's a very quick learner, smart enough to be trained to do anything. He would do very well in the show ring (his maternal brother was purchased for the show ring and his dad is son of a national champion), pulling a cart (his dad has training in this), and with his conformation and coloring, he will make an awesome herd sire if you want to breed him. But on top of anything you train him to do, he will always be a fantastic little friend. Because of his temperament, he will be excellent with children or a senior who could use a good, fun friend.
We're looking for a loving family who would like to have a beautiful and bright little horse as a forever friend! He will bless the family who gets him!
We can discuss a payment plan if that would help.
