Denali Stud shared some updates on Lassofthemohicans19 as she turned two months old on June 6!

She is enjoying her time in the big field. She is making friends, being social and enjoying all of her time outdoors.

Silver Colors19 Socializing

Silver Colors
June 4th, 2019

Silver Colors and her colt have been placed with Wicked Mizz and her bay filly by Tapizar. The broodmare manager at Gainesway Farm likes to buddy mares up, 2-3 at a time to let them get safely accustomed to being back with their own pasture mates with their babies. In the next month or so, he will then place most of them back together in a larger herd, and since the mares will have a horse they are comfortable being around, there will be less of a chance of a horse getting injured.

As far as little Silver Colors19 turning gray...He will probably stay chestnut. It can be hard to tell, but most of the time the babies that will turn gray usually have what I call a thick "white eye-liner" around their eyes. Kind of a roaning around them. They will, after about a month or so, have a roan/steel look about their entire coat. Silver Colors19 had a little lite coloring around his eyes when he was younger, but that was due to his chestnut color. 

Here is a recent video of Silver Colors19 socializing with his friend. 

 

Happy two months, Frivolous19!

Silver Colors19 is growing by leaps and bounds

Gainesway Farm shared this update on Silver Colors19:

Silver Colors19 is growing by leaps and bounds. He just celebrated his one month on May 28th! He has been turned out with his pasture buddy for a couple of weeks now and they are as close as siblings. They spend their afternoons and evenings playing, sleeping and just enjoying being a horse. While in his stall, he is learning how to stand to have his feet picked, his body groomed and learning to walk with a handler without his mother being right beside him.
