Day 4 to Day 50 Comparison

Thought you guys might like to see a little comparison! The first photo was taken on day 4 of owning Annie (April 13th) and the second photo is from day 50 (May 29th).

There's definitely still a lot of work to be done but I'm loving the progress I'm seeing in her muscling. I'd still like her to gain even more weight, so I might be upping her grain just a bit here soon. She's not getting a whole lot right now because I wanted to see how well she'd gain weight on the free-choice hay and two flakes of alfalfa before messing with concentrated feeds too much.

Also, here's a video of her doing some baby grid-work from the other day and some flatwork from earlier in the week. She went on to do the full grid the day after I got this video (bounce, one stride, one stride). Once she understands what is being asked of her she steps it up and is confident basically doing it on her own. I like to let her figure out her own footwork, especially early on. She's really gained a ton of confidence and I'm super happy with her progress so far.

She looks like she's coming along nicely. Does she seem to like her new job?

She's looking great, her neck is looking better. The second picture is dark, but her hip looks more filled out, too. Good work! She's a very lovely too, her legs go on for miles, haha.

Thank you!

And yes, she really seems to be enjoying her new job. She's got a great work ethic and now that she's figuring out the jumping and understanding it better she's much keener to take me to the fences and pick her feet up over them!

I'm super fond of her overall balance and proportions. Yeah, there are some faults, but no horse is perfect and she really uses herself nicely. I've been working a lot on teaching her to really reach under herself from behind (mostly at the trot, she naturally has a pretty good walk and canter, one of the reasons I bought her without even getting on) and use her hind end to lift through her back into the contact. She's getting the hang of it!
