That was when I first had her

And this below
[IMG][/IMG]

Was last October.

And if that works, it's a miracle as I've never uploaded pictures before.

The first photo does not show the true glory of her unfitness. When I had her vetted the vet told me over the phone (I didn't attend the vetting) "her belly is down to her knees", and "I haven't tested her for pregnancy". In fact she emphasised that a lot!

And the second photo doesn't really show her off at all, but I don't seem to have any proper conformation shots.

Regardless, please take these as inspiration that yes indeed a Couch-loving-hay&chocolate-loving-ex-lardy-arsed-broodmare can indeed get hunting fit.


(oh, the shame of my chair seat!!!)

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Some of my broodmares never got their "girly" shape back.

I'm not going into critique (because I'm not good at it anyway), but isn't she a "foundation appy" type? Just curious here.

Cute girl and doesn't look like a typical "rescue" (skinny or scared).
