Critique Grace's Progress

Several months ago I posted critiques for my 5 year old OTTB, and was curious to see what you guys thought of her progress.

I only have one video of her and it's very short (camera died) but it's taken in the exact place where the other one was... and they're both about 10 seconds! (Don't know how that happened...)

Notice her feet differences. I always thought they looked way too short with my old farrier...




The Other Day: (going through a long puddle) Not her best moment, but sooo different from the other video!

Were her feet really as short as they look in the first picture?
I'm sorry, but they look horribly short, made me uncomfortable to look at. :/

She's improved a lot, much better muscle tone, much nicer coat. Good job.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Me too. ;o I haven't look at any of those old pictures in so long and that immediately popped out at me. Now she has normal feet AND poured pads for extra comfort. =)

And thank you! I'm so proud of that back.

I can definitely notice a different in her shape. She looks much more well put together and nicer muscle tone.

Her feet... WOW. They are extremely short in that first picture. Her feet looks 10x more healthy now.
To me, in that first video, she looks to be trotting shorter in her stride, and it would make sense since her feet were awfully short and probably not very comfortable for her to move on.
The second video, she looks more relaxed and to be stretching her stride more.

Good job!

...he's so kissable, huggable, loveable, unbelievable...

I think in the first picture her feet are just being covered by dirt. I dont think they were actually that short.

She looks alot better to me. Seems like you're doing great.

She looks much healthier overall, but her feet now seem to have too much heel.
