Before and After

Here are some pictures of the standardbred gelding I recently rescued. Here his is the first day I got him.

And here he is a few weeks later, after a body clip. I think he still needs a little weight.

What do you think?

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare

Well, I tend to like my horses on the round and muscular side, (just like me ), but I think from all the standardbreds I've seen he doen't look too thin.

He looks better already from the before picture and he'll keep looking better as you work with him.

He's a lucky horse, good luck.

Leave your emotions on the ground when your up in the saddle.

Oh wow, he looks so sad in the first pic. :(
He's a good looking horse.

Where did you rescue him from?
Do you know what happened to him?

I hope all works out for you, he's gorgeous.
