A couple more pictures of our beautiful Chrome thanks to Juliana Colombo's twitter! He's still looking great and I can't wait to see little Chromes running around this coming spring. I know the odds aren't in his favor of being a successful stallion, but I also know I'm not the only one rooting for him. Scroll down to October 16 for the photos and enjoy: https://twitter.com/julianacolomboo
