These are pics of my old girl Flame. She is 29 years old and this was after bath day and some clipping. I learned how to ride on this horse and she was and still is a great mare. Not great maybe in some people's worlds, but she's been the first horse and the first horse love of several young girls. She's still a sweetie and spends her days grazing the pasture flirting with her younger man (he's only 8
). I don't ride her anymore due to some lameness issues, but she provides pony rides to all the kids. You can see in these pics that she's a bit of a butterball, but two years ago she was probably 200 pounds heavier... and its awfully hard to keep weight off a horse you can't really exercise
That's alright though she's enjoying her retirement.
