nice! At least they were supportive, right? =D Hunter is really cute by the way =)

Personally though: I haven't even admitted that I have a horse yet =x

I wouldn't worry about it for now. She has a lot of growing to do. :)
Thank you, animalartcreations! I really hope that some of it evens out, especially that big head of hers! =P

She is a really good girl, the BO's favorite, never gives any trouble (though she tried to mow me down for some grain, but we'll deal with that...I think she'd do anything for food..). My BO calls her a "once in a lifetime" horse and says I got lucky to find a horse with such a good disposition. So yeah, a long way of saying..."it's what's inside that counts"
...
As long as she isn't an utter trainwreck outside, I'm happy xD

I'll prove it to you, there's hope!

16-18 months, something around there.




2 years 3 months ( Even I thought she was ugly at this point, poor thing.)

2 years 6 months

Three years


Three years


Three years, 8 months (with winter fuzzies but...)


(no recent conformation shots, sorry)



I have to say though...Hunter IS one of the prettiest little ponies I've seen in a long time-Hunter65. Wanna trade?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Um....NOPE although I almost did trade him away a year ago as he was a biting brat and wasn't fun to be around but he is coming along nicely now. If only he would grow just a wee bit more lol
