Hard to believe that Sonny just had his 3rd birthday this month in October!  He is no longer with his family band.  He is now a full-fledged ‘bachelor’ stallion.  As a 3 year old, he is currently hanging out with three other young bachelor stallions.  It is also interesting to see his coloring change.  He is truly a combination of his father – a dark bay with no markings, and his mother who is a light bay almost buckskin color.

Bachelors will continue on their own or with other bachelors until they are old enough and strong enough to steal a mare from another band.  This coming of age is usually around 5 or 6 years old.
