I have had Nimir almost a year...the difference a year makes!

Yep...I have Nimir almost a year (in september). I think he has had an amazing recovery from when I first got him. I thought it would be fun to post some pics of from when I very first got him...and some from today! If you are interested in viewing his full one year photo journal visit his rinky dink website ( Amirage Nimir-Brindle Arabian - Home ). Not a great site...but the best I could put together in a couple hours...lol.

Yes...I know...he still has quite a ways to go before he is really looking good...especially in the muscle department...but I think he is on a great track so far

Wow I love his coloring! He looks great!


You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown

::secretly wants him:: Wish I could afford him! He's stunning. And he looks like he's my favorite size. Trade me for a cute little filly? Lol (Just kidding)

Are you looking for a conformation critique? That is the section you posted in but the body of your post does not sound like that is what you are looking for.

He has put on some weight. It will not fix his very upright shoulder and his weak looking back end though. His coloring is cool, will he keep it or is he greying out?

Oops....Actually I meant to post this in the Pictures section. Guess I wasn't paying attention..haha. I PM'd a MOD to see if they can move it :) His shoulder does seem upright though....I looked for pics of his sire and it seemed pretty similar to his and since his sire did so many amazing things in the Arabian world I am guessing it can't be all that bad....Maybe what they breed for the SE world?

He doesn't seem to be greying out at all...in fact as time goes on it seems like his stripes are all getting darker...almost close to black now. When I got him they were all light beige. It is very fun and interesting watching his coat in each season. I am reasonably sure that if he hasn't started significant greying by 4 1/2 that he probably won't anytime soon. I could be completely wrong on this though

Thank-you all I am glad I am not the only one seeing the difference...lol. I see him everday though plus I am a bit biased so....good to hear honest opinions! As soon as my ankle finishes healing Nimir and I are going into serious work mode...tons of trail rides and gaining muscle on his part hopefully!
