    Thank you dream catcher! I have never seen him shine like this. I think it is thanks to the Ultium and Strategy idea I got from you! :)

    Gorgeous horse, he doesn't even look like the same horse. He just needed your TLC, good job!

    Well we hit a snag approximately 8 weeks ago. Drifter came up three legged lame with a swollen splint bone. We took him into the vet and he had a bone chip. Urgh! Treated it with arthroscopy and he had 7 weeks of pasture rest. He continued to gain weight and is doing much better! He is now slowly being introduced back into work and we are working on lots of long and low to help him rebuild his muscle mass.

    I would still like to see him put on a few more pounds but he is gaining day by day and is back to his playful TB self. I meant to keep this thread more update but sadly I got busy and distracted by his injury on top of work and summer classes. It has been a LONG year with this guy, and I am hoping that this fall and 2014 bring in nicer skies. Since last July we have experiences dramatic weight losses, abscesses, a stifle tear, colic, ulcers and now a bone chip. I swear he enjoys being injured.

    Sadly we have lost all work progress we have made, because he is the type of horse that needs consistent riding or he goes back to believing he was never broke in the first place. The past week has been very frustrating for me because it is hard to start over at square one with a horse who just 2 months ago was absolutely perfect. But enough venting and whining on my part. Ill bring on the pictures :) Sorry for the dull coat colors, he is actually quite shiny when he is clean. But its hard to keep him that way. He spends all of his time rolling in the pond in his pasture. He is still on Ultium. He loves it and he is thriving.

    He also has a newly pulled mane. These pictures were taken before I pulled it, but his latest hair do can be found in my thread under horse grooming.

    Looking soooooooo good
    I like him with the longer mane.....
    The only thing I see that needs a little attention are his long toes in front, other than that he looks spectacular

    Haha I actually like the longer mane too Desert! However, I am hoping to take him to a show in September near my school that requires the pulled look. I wanted to pull it now in case I messed up! Sort of a practice run haha. The good news is that his mane grows INSANELY fast. So there is hope for it to be long again :) haha

    And I forgot to mention about his toes! They were insanely long in that photo, I know. They have since been trimmed :) That is the first time I have ever let them get that long and I don't plan on allowing them to get that way again. Had a family emergency come up that resulted in me being out of town for a while.

    Im just speaking from experience with long TB toes....they're quite delicate with their legs and a long toe corrected can do wonders sometimes

    He has a forelock to match....two of my three had no forelock worth mentioning, but mane and tail thick and wavy.......

    The difference between the first post you made in this thread and even his most recent photos is amazing! You have done an amazing job :)

    Got some pics this morning that show off his penny shine! (Thank you for that Ultium!!). Also, desert, it lets you see his newly trimmed feet :)

    Had to throw in some of the sunrise pictures I caught as well. It was breathtakingly beautiful out in the pasture this morning. So blessed to live the life I do!!
