Critic My New BoofHead !

This is Shadow, he scrubs up well ;D

I bought him on the 31st of last month, i've just been letting him get used to everything and he's been rugged up, scrubbed, washed, wormed, been trimmed, both hair and hoof, this is what he looked like a week before i bought him ;

Are you in the Southern Hemisphere? The trees look like they have lost their leaves in the top photo and are leafed out in the lower one.. and you are saying the top photo is "today?"

How old is Shadow? He could stand a bit more groceries. He is long backed and his hind pasterns are very long. Other than that he looks a useful sort. A little more weight and he will look MUCH better.

I'm in Australia so Yes, the bottom photo is when i first looked at him, in a entirely different area, the trees are pine and gum, so they don't loose their leaves, the top photo is at my paddock, the trees are some foreign tree, like birch or something i dont know.

When i first looked at him, i couldn't get decent photos as it was nearing dusk, so they looked shadowed, but he was dirty, covered in matted hair, mud, and was really thick, it was hiding the fact he had lost more weight then stated, thanks for your comments.
