Thank you very much! Coming from you (and the quality of horses you have) That is a major compliment to me.

Wrecker got her feet trimmed yesterday. My farrier really really loves her. Says she one of the most well put together foals he's seen. She was kind of naughty with her front feet. But was great with the backs. More work to be done I suppose.

5-1/2 Months Old...

New pictures. Wrecker is growing like a weed...And looks it! She's a little ribby, down-hill and overall right now looks more like a recent rescue. She has been on good, green pasture. Is getting fresh alfalfa hay. And I've recently added some grain to her diet to help with her weight.

She was with Nutmeg for awhile when first separated from Chilly. Then I added Jasper and they were like that for about 3 weeks. And just recently I put Chilly with Nut and Jasper, and Rumor and Wrecker have been together. Rumor is a very good Auntie to Wrecker.

This picture is great showing how much she faded! And now she's already growing in her "winter coat" So the new black is pushing out that nasty orange hair now. My dad was questioning me about the "black spots" on her shoulders and I didn't realize what he was talking about until inspecting her. He has been so adamant that she is NOT BLACK. I keep telling him to shush, she is too, just wait until winter. LoL.

And here's Momma, Chilly. She was not happy that she didn't get grain when Rumor and Wrecker did. Or hay. But she's been cut off of pretty much everything except pasture. I'd say she's maintaining her weight "just fine" without extras. LoL. So she's with "The Fatties" who only are on pasture.

Everyone is looking so good! I especially love the pic of Wrecker looking up from the feed bucket at you. It's sad how much dark horses bleach out over summer.. she'll be black again soon enough :)

Yeah, she's a cutie. And sweet as pie.

I think she is going to have a ridiculously long mane as well. Her mane is already 7 inches long. Halfway down her neck. Rumor's mane is 2 feet at it's longest point and it's quite a hassle to keep healthy. So now I'll have 2 of them!

As you can tell I cut Chilly's mane. Her's is SO thick it lies on both sides like this. Her mane got very scraggley and she was so hot, so I chopped, chopped, chopped it. My mom hates when I get the scissors out!

I think Chilly's mane looks good!My boy's is thin but I still always keep it somewhat trimmed up too. You can make it look decent with scissors, despite what some say ;) I think long manes look good though! Hopefully hers won't be terribly thick though

Here's my gangley, fugly girl. she's actually looking much better then she was. I refused to take pictures of her at 6 months old because she looked like a rescue. She's almost 7 months old now. And starting to fill out again. I upped her grain intake by alot, thanks to Cherie on another thread, I concluded she was protein deficient. I tried not giving her much grain because I didnt want her growing too fast and grain isnt necessarily good for horses, but I caved after taking advice from Cherie. And am very glad I did. She's looking much better and healthier now. Still gangley though...

And I couldnt stand her sunbleached mane and tail. The rest of her is back to black with her winter coat coming in. (By the way, I won the bet with my bf and dad, she is black and they finally admit Anyways, so I dyed her forelock, mane and tail today. It turned out fantastic. She stood tied for about an hour while I did it and waited for it to set in. And afterwards, I put coconut oil in for the first time on a horse, and im in love with that stuff. It smells amazing and her mane is so stinking soft. I also trimmed up the dead ends on her mane, so she's looking quite spiffy now.

And we learned to walk over a bunch of scary garbage bags today. She snorted a few times but went over them without any trouble. It was no big deal to her.
