Ok, so I've put this picture up once before, in a thread asking if I might ever be able to ride her, if only to get her broke for my siblings to ride (40 lb and down) I'm 5' and about 115 lbs. Right now, she measures about 455lbs and 11.2 hands.
THE REASON SHE LOOKS LIKE THIS: So, about 2 months ago me, and most of my familly had to go on a trip that ended up being almost 5 weeks long. While we were gone, all of our land and livestock (including our pony) was left in the care of my older brother. (which I greatly distain right now!) But, long story short, he was lazy, and didn't think that the animals NEEDED food and water ..... So, in those 5 weeks or so, Star had gone from "plump" to extremely emaciated! To the point where the day after we got home, we rushed her to the vet, and got her on fluids. We gave her some water, but only some at a time, because she would have drunken herself sick!!!
So, after lots of care, regular (good) food, ALWAYS having water, and regular exercise, this is what she looks like, 2 months latter....
SO.... I wanted to work on her overall health and condition, and muscle building for the next several months. You can see it, she's slim and weak right now. And I've gotten some mixed bag results as to whether or not she could (NOT NOW) hold me, if only to break her in. (because she is a naughty pony!)
So, I wanted to post pictures (and possibly videos) every month to show her progress and condition. And in August get a good solid review form everyone on how she looks then, compared to now. THEN, we'll ask it again, if you suppose she could carry me or not. (remember, just to get her to behave, and not throw kids!)
