    India *Update* After 8 months...weight gain and muscle!

    Well India is my first and ONLY horse right now. I bought her back in October of last year. Since it was my first time buying a horse I didn't really know what to look for [weight wise] All I know is that I wanted a gentle broke somewhat young [9] healthy horse. And ofcourse had a vet check her out and make sure she was healthy. So all in all, she's still a sweet sweet girl BUT she was underweight and her hair was matted. Her previous owner's only fed her coastal hay and feed [not sure what kind of feed] I think they did the best thing for her and that was to sale her. Cost of hay was going up and they had a few other horses. So I'm super proud of the way she looks right now...and we do got a lil more ways to go but were getting there. I have been working with a trainer and I have learned soooo much already. India gets daily exercise in the round pin (it's a very big round pin!) and loves to breeze!!! She is familiar with barrels although my trainer competes I have yet to compete (not too confident yet in that field) lol. So basically she used to look like a horse with a potbelly! Haha, all her weight was in her belly and her back was kinda slumpy (not too much but enought to notice) she had a huge knot in the back of her tail and mats in her mane. And ofcourse I fixed that right when I got her (the tail took work) but anyways I got her coat looking great now! She is "filling out" and gaining muscle...and lost that "pot belly" lol. So here she is...and I do believe she is a very beautiful horse. Please let me know what ya think?? :)
    1st & 2nd Pic-The day we went out to see her
    3rd Pic-Moments after unloading her "notice the matted hair" day we brought her home.

    and the rest are of her now :)

    That horse looks like she has an owner who takes care of her well and uses her correctly, enjoys her & loves her. She is a very lucky horse to have been chosen by you. I love her name, my horse's barn name is Indy (reg'd as RDR Independence Day) but sometimes I call him India, lol. Nice pictures as well, thanks for posting.

    @OMGPINK-Thanks! (:

    @Country Woman-We will both be in our first trail ride together in June and I plan to have her hair looking perty perty ;) Learned this style from my trainer :)

    @waresbear-Thanks so much...I kept in touch with her previous owners and just send them pix from time to time (keep them updated) and they can't believe how beautiful she has become, they say I'm doing an awesome job. I know India is a happy girl--I can just feel it?? Lol--Wierd to say but I can!

    Very nice, great pictures! Thanks for sharing.
    But.............. an off topic, you may want to tighten that back cinch. Being loose like that can really cause a problem in the horse were to get its back hoof in there while shewing off a fly. Its happened!

    @nvr2many
    I couldn't agree more. This was how she was when we went to look at her. Her previous owners had saddled her. I look back on pix of her while we were there looking at her [I got a few more] and I did noticed that...yikes. I may have been too much of a "nice girl" to say anything besides at the time I wasn't sure if that was the "norm" just because it was my first time buying a horse and never saddled one up myself...which now I know how--along with other things [thank God I got a trainer] lol.
