Volta body May

Volta has not grown or changed very much. The only change we notice is he is still thickening in his conformation. His legs are little tree trunks and his neck and chest are becoming very thick indeed. Wes is very pleased with his overall development and cannot wait for him to be a 3 year old. He is up by 1/2 cm in the wither but the rump height has stayed the same. So he is going through a small growth spurt. Oh and his tail is growing longer every month!

Poll to muzzle: 71cm no change
