They Grow Up So Fast

Since it's the new year, I've started calling Cinder a coming two year old. She's closer to two than one at this point, but it's still weird to think of her as a two year old. She still acts very babyish, has the attention span of a gnat, and is go go go all the time. It's exhausting.

Looks pretty grown up to me
She's taken a break from growing taller, but has grown longer and filled out a little. My farrier called her a wiener dog last time he was out.  She grew out of the 69" sheet I got for her in about 6 weeks, but thankfully the 70" blanket still fits pretty well. I figure she and Peebs can share his 75"-78" clothes next winter.

I had the two of them out together a few days ago. I haven't been putting them out together since they play pretty rough and last time Peebs got kicked hard and was off for a few days.  He probably deserved it.  This time he was really vocal to her and nuzzling her a lot.  I thought it was cute at first.  Till Cinder squatted and peed. My 20 month old filly is having her first heat, in January. There is something wrong with this. I'm not prepared for this. I don't think she was prepared for this. Do I need to have a birds and the bees conversation with her? There is a five month old colt on the property; I don't want Cin getting any ideas. I guess I'll add this to the list of things to talk to my vet about.


  1. Haha! Little hussy! It's definitely easier to handle with boys, you just take the hormone producers away! Tougher with baby girls I guess.

  2. Babies grow up so fast! Except their brains... those develop sloooowly :)

  3. Uh oh, probably wanna hold back on the turnouts till it passes.

  4. Ah I hope I can come visit in the summer and squish her face sometime (hold me to it in 2020 for sure!)
