Talking Then and now

So when I first saw Oliver, then was named "mark" ew! I thought oh man another funky horse for me! When I met him, way different! Either way I would love him the same! But I have now owned Ollie 10 full month, about 81/2 of then he's been getting worked 3-5 days a week. He's still got another year of growing in him, thank you 2/3 Dutch warmblood! Lol his ribcage hasn't "sprung" all the way yet, right now he is slightly rump high.

So here are pictures from then and now.
First picture is from febuary of 2011
What do you like in the change? What do you hope to see in this last year of maturing/growing?

febuary 2011

January 2012 ( was off of any work, this was when he was currently sick with pneumonia....one of his better days coming out if it!

April 2012
