Two years with Penny

Just thought I'd upload some more pics of my sweetie, Penny.

The day I picked her up, June 2006. She's gone 5 years out in a paddock, virtually untouched, so she's got years worth of fuzz, :P

A week later at my aunt's property, cleanup time for a fat horse, look at that crest!

Not sure when these pics were taken, some time during the 6 months that she was at my aunt's.

Then she went lame after my aunt's freisian/tb cross double barrelled her just above her elbow , we thought at one point that she might have to be put down. Her shoulder swelled up and she wouldn't even move. Due to the injury and her age she dropped weight really fast.

the culprit is the dark bay on the left, aptly named boof. imagine being thumped by him

Then, about 6 mponths after I got her, and four months after her injury, she's sound again and moved to a small place near my house. still skinny, but putting the weight on, and finally losing all that hair. Yay!

Looking even better

being a sticky beak, lol

return of the winter fuzzies

That's incredible. I didn't realise it was the same horse throughout until the last set of pictures. She looks really good!

Good for you! you have a really pretty mare on your hands dear!

Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

I would have never of known that was the same horse! Amazing that she let you get near her after being out in a pasture that long. She must be a really sweet girl. What kind of horse is she?

And a redhead to boot! Lovely, before and after picts.

My Ludicris was out in a back pasture for most of his young life. He is adjusting really well and I take loads of picts so that I can remember what he looked like "before" and "after". Amazing isn't it?
