This is one of the very first pictures taken of Mistletoe born 12/05/08.
At birth and over the last few months he has been very sweet and attentive to his mom... always making sure to check in with her.
But now? Going on 4 months old, his attention is on what he can get into! Here he is in the feed trough, not in his stall but the neighboring stall! His mom and I cannot figure out how he got in there.
He is now sprouting his horns, but they are going in the wrong direction (down instead of up). Mistletoe will be great for wool... he has such a wonderful coat... but not for breading. Since I took these pictures he has continued to escape and join the herd next door at night leaving Mom behind. I think he can jump stalls in a single leap like superman!!
