    Good thread. I actually just shocked myself posting these. Had completely forgotten what he looked liked:

    My baby when he was 7 months old:


    Him now at 15 months:

    Unfortunately my "diamonds in the rough" never had the chance to come out of the rough. A couple months after I started working with them (nobody ever cared what anyone did with them, they were in a small paddock in a wooded area away from the stables), they were sold, and I've never seen them again. I would have loved to see how they would have turned out. Charlie and Ebony Rose. Two Shetland Ponies. Ebony was Charlie's daughter, and a gorgeous black filly. She was always really shy, but it's completely understandable, seeing as she never really had any other companion/friend besides Charlie (who often ate up all of her food). Charlie's the biggest brat I ever met. Awesome, but a brat none-the-less. He would have made an absolutely gorgeous cart pony... with time. Now for the pictures of these two:

    This was the fifth or sixth time I had seen them, after the two mares were gone (look at bottom), after conditions improved, at a big sunday horse race. Nobody was coming around to see them, and I thought they'd be lonely, considering all of the big, fancy Standardbreds were everywhere.





    These pictures were taken a little while later. Poor shy little Ebony...





    And these really show what kind of conditions they were in day by day:



    And now... for my absolutely favorite picture of Charlie. Just look at that diamond...


    The worst I ever found them in was a VERY muddy paddock with Ebony's Dam, as well as an EXTREMELY thin and arthritic mare, and around the corner a you could find a dead goat (that had died of malnourishment), a couple of other goats that were extremely thin, and some chickens running around. Conditions changed over the next month, which was good, but Eb's dam and the arthritic mare both dissapeared. Just as mysteriously as Charlie and Ebony did several months later.
