Wonderful job!

As others have said, never judge a horse by breed, color or size.....you could miss out on the horse of your dreams. Glad you took that chance...looks like he needed you.

What a beautiful animal !!! I have recently taken on the responsibility for my daughter's 17.2 hand OTTB that she adopted from a "rescue" in south MS. My own horse is a 14.2 hand QH, so sometimes I suffer from size-shock ! The big guy is really sweet to handle, good manners etc. In the last few months he has gained about 150 lbs. but I can still see a few ribs. My concern is should I blanket him this winter just to help him hold his weight , or since we have fairly mild winters(only a few weeks with weather in the teens) just leave him alone. He is such a clown, I'm afraid he will either tangle himself up in a blanket or eat it...whichever comes to mind first. He will stay in his stall at night and the barn is very dry and warm. Also, since the grass is all gone now, should there be any changes in feed and hay allowances. Never had a project like this before, so it's a great learning experience.

He looks so good now! I adopted a horse a month ago and he too was in poor condition, not as bad as Beau did when you got him, but close to it. He already looks so different. I love seeing these before and after pics because so many want to write an animal off when it hasn't been taken care of, but with some tlc, food, and general care they can transform. And they seem so grateful for it, too!

Wow, absolutely amazing transformation!
You can tell just by the photos how much life and personality he has in him. You are an angel.
