Color Change

Spice is going to have another week or two off until her legs are better, so I decided to take pictures, I wish I could have got pictures of her running around like normal but that won't be happening for a little while, so here are the pictures. The pictures where she is really dark is her now with her new summer coat, she is still holding on to some of her winter coat (the light patches on her face, belly and legs). She has no muscle tone because of the problem with the farrier prevented me from working her any amount but once it is straightened out we're going full out.

And the older pictures are from late September last year.

Someone asked me if she was wet because she looks so much darker, no idea why she is no dark now, but it sure is pretty, I love the color chestnut regardless of the shade, as a show groom copper and dark chestnuts I found were so easy to shine up nicely.

The pictures also show how much weight she's gained. We had a mishap when changing feeds they were suppose to feed her the same weight of each but she really needed more of the new than the label had for her weight, so she still is gaining a little more, but she really needs muscles.
