Peanut Butter Fluff

Peanut is a Belgian Draft horse and my first baby. He was born in the driving rain on 6/6/6 about a 1/2 mile from my house and I happened to drive by his pasture about 10 minutes after he was born and stopped to watch him struggle to stand and then his first feeble steps. Soon he was running…I was starstruck. In my heart I claimed him for my own and a few weeks later sealed the deal with the dairy farmer who had no use for him.

Pictured here at 3 months old. Never haltered or handled.

He and I soon came to be ‘buds’. Halter trained and leading lessons behind us….sharing a morning cup of joe…at 4 months.

December 2006…six months old and nearly rideable!

The neighbors called constantly…’I think there is something wrong with your youngster!’ He loved to sleep…anywhere.

Here he is with the crew…winter 2007…8 months old. Look at those legs!

Nearly a yearling…hmmm..he’s getting big!

After a few days spent with Mark Rashid in the spring of 2007, Peanut was off to a great start! Ground driving 101. Here he is 16 months old.
Mark was glad we started him so young…when he was relatively small!?! He said I could start sitting on him when he was 18 mos old…yikes! Stay tuned!
