The 'before' pictures were taken the day I got Amber. I finally got around to doing some 'glamour shots' today. With her previous owner, she basically got no grain other than a handful to lure her into the barn from her paddock attached to the barn. She had a round bale with 24/7 access.
She was ridden regularly, but incorrectly, by a young teenager who was just learning how to jump. Amber was usually pretty inverted and always braced with the under-muscle in her neck.
Big difference? Oh yes. Amber now gets probably a sprinkle of grain. More than anything I have such a small amount given so that she won't feel "left out" during feeding time. It's just a 10% maintenance feed, nothing special.
12hrs of turnout daily. No hay at all (at least, in the summer). She's a prime example of easy keeper.
^Not cooperating for a nice photo for her allbreed page. First word that comes to mind? Sassy.
