Show us your Before and After pictures!

I've seen some amazing before and after shots posted throughout this forum so I thought I'd add a centralized location. Show off your hard work! Your young and old, your winter and summer, your skinny and prime conditioning, your ratty mane to glorious waves of.... you get the idea :)

Here's mine:

This is Rusty. Defiantly not the same horse I remember rescuing a year ago...

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

Well, Major has always been pretty well-taken care of, so most of his changes have been conditioning wise and training wise.. since he was only four and a half when I started leasing him. (although I'll be owning him in September if the vet check goes well) So the first pictures are our first winter together, him being a pretty green horse and me being completely new to green horses.. the last pictures are after we've gotten into a rhythm and he improved a crazy amount.

(my position is definitely something to be frowned upon here... it took soo much leg to get him going, hence why he needs a pair of spurs)

Here's Mellow three weeks after we brought him home.

An now just a few weeks ago-- I've only had him four months (I know because my son was born the weekend we brought Mellow home )

I haven't gotten a decent "conformation" shot recently since I'm in the middle of moving, but he looks so much better! Just filthy from being out in the pasture. I can't wait to give him a bath after the move.

Wow, awesome changes everyone! I love seeing these kinds of photos.
