Exclamation YOUR before and After/ baby and adults?

Im not quite sure that this goes here. But I LOVE seeing before and after of rescues/ horses bought in bad condition:). I love seeing how many good people that there actually is in this world. That help horses get back to good health.

I also would like to see the pictures of your horses when they were babies and when they were full to almost full grown. Thanks:)

I think this goes here? Maybe not? Sorry if it doesnt:/

Not quite a baby picture, but pretty close (got this from his breeder):

My horse wasn't super neglected when I got him, but he was pretty skinny and undermuscled. I keep meaning to get a more recent photo of him, but haven't managed to do so yet. He's an easy keeper, so I can only imagine how little the seller had been feeding him.

I built up his exercise pretty gradually, and used "Equine Fitness" by Jec Ballou as a resource for keeping the routine varied and covering the various muscle groups.

Here is my Lyric at 6 months.

And at 3 years.

Calamity at 5 months.

Calamity at 2 1/2 yrs.

The only horse I've ever had that came to me not in good condition was an orphan filly this summer. The owners didn't know how to take care of her once her mother died.

Here she was in July. The day I got her.

Here she is now.

The first picture is of Arrow the day I brought him home.
The second is a picture of him getting all pretty about a month ago, and the last one is of him under saddle a few weeks ago.
