Having a rest

My friend took this picture on her phone a while ago - its still one of my favorite ones ! Its not the best picture but you can see that I am bending down doing my mares hooves and she decided to rest the full weight of her head on my back ! She is a rescue and we have a really close bond - she has gained 400lbs since this picture was taken !

Cute picture. Was she really resting? Or maybe trying to groom you back? Sweet either way.

But gained 400 lbs since then? Either the picture is really really really crappy quality, she is hugely overweight now or you typo-ed???

What you can't see in this picture is that she is really skinny - had no muscle and was suffering from chronic ulcers. She was just over 900lbs in this pic - she is now 1300lbs - stands 16.3 and is solid. The picture actually makes her look good - I couldnt groom her with a brush at that point because there were so many bones sticking out !

I never thought about her trying to groom me back - she still does it sometimes now but not for as long as she used to - thankfully - I don't think I could manage the extra weight - ha ha !

Here are some before and after pics !
