    Before, After.

    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.

    Wish I could get my extremely easy keeper to lose weight like that! She gets worked 3 to 4 times a week and she still won't drop weight. Good job though. She's a pretty horse.

    Thanks! I'm so proud of her.

    Her past life was not the best. She has really nice lines and her conformation is fair, but the way she was kept, ridden and treated just brought her down. Not necessarily by the owner who had her on the roundbale (although she looked pretty bad), but the owner before that. She wasn't abused necessarily, but she was handled incorrectly and rough. I just found out they bred her at 2 years old as well.

    They used to call her the "hony" at the old barn. She was really an ugly looking horse, and I definitely didn't buy her for looks out there, although I saw the potential.

    Her hay belly combined with her natural "stockyness" made her look like she had terribly short legs, and thus made her look far less than 15h.

    When I bought her, some of the teenagers that rode there actually had the audacity to say "You're buying THAT thing?"

    Definitely came out on top though!

    And I just noticed the faint little dapples she has. I think they'd be showing more if she was out in the day, but she gets her turnout at night in the summer.

    She's so cute! Definitely can tell there is a huge difference with her!
