Ok so at the begining of this year I had to move from my home start boarding my horse Bella who is a 28 year old Arabian mare. I found this place that was great, Bella would be turned out in a huge pasture everyday and fed quality feed.... Supposedly!!! I went up there every weekend to see her, and noticed she was NEVER out in her pasture, she was always in her 12x24 pen and she was lossing muscle... I talked to the lady and she promised she was getting out. I missed one weekend and when I was able to get up there the following weekend this is what I found!! My horse had no water or food for who knows how long!!!!
These were just TWO WEEKS after getting her to the barn she's at now... which clearly means that the last barn just wasn't feeding her!
Heres Cricket. We still got a little ways to go. Much more muscle...
These are from a few weeks ago
These are from a yesterday =D
I know I'm terribly fat and ugly in every way, shape, and form... But Im working on it =( I don't remember looking so horrible on Shrek. Oh boy.
Theres gotta be something amazing about a rescued horse. It's been two months and I am absolutely 100 percent attached to Cricket with everything in me... She's my baby. We have alot to work on, but I'm so proud of everything she's gone through and how much spirit she has for being so malnourished. She's a trooper and she's my world.
My Gracie was quite a tub of goo when I got her. Here is a picture the day I brought her home. She's a 5 year old halfinger cross (as far as I've been told) that was bossy, pushy, no resepect, and spooked at EVERYTHING!
Now she is a quiet, sweet, willing girl that has been transformed by a wonderful trainer. And...there is alot less of her. I think her training was much more of a transformation then her looks, but man is she pretty now!
