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.
