12/24/16 update: Started under saddle, going w,t,c in the arena and hacking out. Will get new pics soon.
5/21/16 update: Pulled this fellow in from our 150 acre pasture. Here are the things that I found remarkable, laying eyes on him as a 2 yr old. 1) he walked right up to me in a catch pen crowded with several horses of all ages and allowed me to halter him, lead him out and walked right onto the trailer on which he stood quietly until we arrived at the farm and he stepped off without incident and walked right into the barn where he quietly stood.
2) he is drop dead gorgeous - wish I had a helper - I'd take a picture.
3) I squared him up (easily) on concrete and measured him with an offical stick with a level and he stands 15H and string tests to 16H, validating my predictions for him sing birth.
4) he has F A B U L O U S..... did you get that? Fabulous naturally balanced feet. I almost dont want to admit this but they have not been trimmed in 6 months - and THEY DONT NEED IT...
Can not wait to see this fellow develop. VERY proud!!

Oisin's dam Mystique was a purebred but unregistered Clydesdale, I have her pedigree info. Oisin is registerable with the Connemara Pony Society as 1/2 Connemara and with the AWS, and DCBOA. If registered with the ACPS, he can be shown at the ACPS shows.
