Evolution of the G-Man

It responding to some comments on the preferences of long v. short manes (I overwhelmingly prefer neat, tidy, short manes), I mentioned that Granite's was LONG when I brought him home (1/17/09). Then I realized that I didn't really have any pictures on the blog of when I first got the baby. So here are a few of from various times in the little man's life. Enjoy:

Baby Granite (only a day old) and his mom 'Grace'

Getting bigger!

The day I brought him home (he was 1 yr 9 months)- Check out that mane!

Getting adjusted to his new paddock (at D's barn).

Photo Shoot on his 2nd Birthday

And Again.

You all know what he looks like now (at least in fuzzy blackberry pictures). Perhaps Carrie will come out and photog him for his 3rd birthday!


  1. He's beautiful, Rachel...short or long. ;-)

  2. He was a beautiful foal, and he's even more beautiful now. Hoping for more pictures!

  3. Aww thanks ya'll! I wish you could meet him. He's SO funny and kind.

  4. He is soooooo a gray and I can't believe he was a little caramel chocolate man when born! His Mom was so pretty, I see she passed down her genes nicely to Granite.
    I am SO jeal that u have baby photos!!!!!

  5. Kristen: for you, I added a new page at the top of the blog (Photo Album). I requested any baby pictures before I bought him since I never had the pleasure of having any from my previous ponies.

  6. First, thank you for visiting my blog and for the well wishes for my girl! We sure appreciate them!

    Your boy is gorgeous! I love grays... they constantly change colors it seems. I love that!

    It's great to have pictures of them when they were little, isn't it? I've had my mare since she was weaned, so I have a lot of pictures of her as she grew up too. Having baby pictures is one of the things I cherish most.

  7. Consider it done - photo shoot for his 3rd birthday!! I'll bust out some film too, so I can use my nice manual SLR that I love so much :)
