Quiet Storm is having a good time playing in the pasture! She's nearly shed out, a bit of dark hair is still left on her neck and she's still a wee fuzzy. But over all, she's looking pretty sleek, showing off her cavalry horse heritage in good looks.
She'll never be very tall, I don't think; lucky to make 14 hands at this rate.
One can never tell for certain, of course. She's just two, and the bulk of the growing tends to be done between two and three. Still, she's never gone through that gangly stage, instead always looking like a scaled down horse. Plus, she's got a very short back. At this stage of the game, I'd expect more length if she were going to shoot up. She stands just over 13 hands right now.
Er...below? No, Darling isn't thinking of leading a parade. This is the 'behind the scenes' shot. Quiet Storm would just stand around all day and barely move if she didn't have a little inspiration! Darling makes a great assistant, marching and racing back and forth behind me with that long piece of fabric. Not that Quiet Storm was frightened, she just took it as her cue to race around and play in front of the camera!
