I got a new picture of Mr. Fabio.
And brace yourselves, it's basically a prime example of why there are good angles to critique from. And why there are terrible, terrible angles.

HOWEVER, focus on his back! I'm pleased with this. I think it's already looking better and it's only been barely 2 weeks since that^ picture.

Does he have a partially blue eye? I only ask because he's the right age and color to be a horse I used to know...

He does have a white scelera on one eye and a few white eyelashes over there [I'm beginning to wonder if he might be half Paint??], but no blue in his eyes. Sorry!!

I figured I might update again :)

Mr. Fabs has basically had the whole winter off so he's not "in shape" at all and he's got a major case of the winter fuzzies, but look at how much his back has come up!!
I'm impressed. I thought that that sway of his was something we'd be dealing with for the rest of time...apparently not!

Haha, his back went up and his belly came down! Look at that gut!

[and in case anyone is confused, the bottom picture -taken today- was flipped so he would be facing the same direction in both pictures]

For reference, the top picture was take about a week after he came home in May 2014, the bottom picture was taken today - 1/10/15.
Nearly 8 months of time between the two.

funny how his mane had switched sides. He looks ok for having had the winter off.

haha that's because I flipped the photo with a photo editor. :) In the original of most recent picture, he's facing to the left - I flipped it so he would be facing the same direction in both photos and it'd be easier to see changes.
His markings are so symmetrical, his mane is the only give away!

And thanks! All that running and sliding he does must be keeping him in shape, somehow... haha

how can that be? The photo is of his right side, correct? How can you flip a photo so that you see the side that you did not photograph? It doens't make sense to me.
So , is the the right side of his body?

The recent photo is of his left side. I totally know where you're coming from - the idea of flipping a photo totally bamboozled me before I watched someone do it!!

Here's the original of the recent photo, before I edited it at all, in case that helps:



It might make more sense if you look at the fence behind him in the recent picture - the part that's by his booty in the recent one is the same section of fence that's by his head in the older photo...

She didn't flip it so you can see the other side. The bottom photo is a shot of his left side and then mirrored horizontally with a photo editor (correct me if I'm wrong). So it's still his left side, but mirrored.
