Remember a few months ago when the foals were all cute and shiny and fancy-looking? Not so much these days… they’re looking decidedly more scruffy in all of their winter coat baby horse glory.
They’re still pretty cute though, if you ask me. None of them have quite hit the yearling uglies stage yet where you have to hide them behind the barn and pretend like you don’t notice that none of their parts match. Right now they’re chunky and fluffy and squishably adorable.
Some of them have been weaned now, which was fairly uneventful. They’re pretty independent by this point and have gotten good at entertaining themselves. For the most part they’re just hanging out enjoying being baby horses and growing up.
The two brothers and their antics are still one of the most entertaining aspects of the group. Obi and Patrick have only bonded more and more as they’ve gotten older, and are fairly inseparable at this point. They’re constantly antagonizing each other, chasing each other, biting each other, etc… all the things that colts do best.
They’re quite evenly-matched though, and seem to enjoy taking turns dishing it out. At least their winter coats seem to help prevent quite as many bite marks?
Wherever these boys go, they might just have to go together. I dunno if we can break up this comedic duo anytime soon.
I know they’ve got a Christmas shoot coming up, and after that we might be nearing the end of the Foal Friday posts for the 2021 class. I’ve stretched it out longer than usual because they’re just so entertaining. After we wrap with this year’s foals I’m working on an update post for some of the previous years’ foals so we can take a look at what they’re up to now… stay tuned!

I can’t believe Patrick is so grey so young! I bet he’s white by the time he’s 5!
Also, super excited for the follow-up on previous classes. 🙂

His sire grayed pretty quickly too
I always dread the end of Foal Friday.
Patrick’s ears being forward in the last picture kind of ruin the “I’m a mean guy” effect.
I also will miss Foal Friday. At least we only have a few months to wait for new babies.
I will definitely miss foal Fridays! But I’m looking forward to catching up on what the older class(es) is (are) up to these days!
I love it when you do a look back on past foals!
