    Smile Before and After

    Ok so not really a critique, but couldn't figure out what section to put this one in! These are "before" and "after" pics of Sandie -- when I first got her, she had been rescued from a bad situation in which she was emaciated...her foster "mom" took her in for the SPCA and put some weight on her. BUT Sandie is a VERY easy keeper apparently so when I got her she was actually OVERweight and her muscles were pretty jiggly from just not being worked much. I've only had her a couple months, but I think she's looking much better already!

    She still needs to lose a little bit of weight & tone up but her frame is really looking much more toned and slim than it did when I first got her in my opinion - what do you all think?? I'm proud of where she is after just 2 mos!

    BEFORE:



    AFTER (taken this morning):

    Wow, I can see why you call her sandie, her coat looks EXACTLY like sand lol.
    What is that scar by her girth on her tummy?

    Haha yeah that's actually the name she had when I got her but I'm positive that's why they named her that! The scar is from a lump that just got removed a couple weeks ago -- ended up being just a sensitive reaction to a bug bite but the vet didn't like the look of it! She just got her stitches out a couple days ago!

    I can really tell the difference, like you said she still needs to lose a little and tone up but you have done great with her. Adorable girl you have there ;)

    I did before she had the lump removed, but she's been on stall rest for 2 weeks bc of the stitches, so the last couple of days after that was over I've just been letting her run around because she has too much energy for me to ride her! And because of where the location is, I can't put a girth on her for awhile so when I do ride again it's probably going to bareback (yikes!!) lol

    Awww, I love Sandie, can I have her?? LOL. She is soooo pretty.
    She is looking really great. I'm so glad to hear the lump wasn't serious.
    If they would have known it was only a bug bite, would they have removed it?

    Thanks Jubilee! The vet said that they would have likely removed it anyway, because of the location - right where the girth goes. The constant rubbing there wouldn't have let it heal so it would've needed to come off anyway. I'm just glad it wasn't something else more serious! Although now I have to watch our for bugs when the weather gets warmer and really soak her in fly spray for turnout every day!!
