Indy before & after PIC HEAVY

Hey Guys,

I took some pictures of Indy yesterday and I compared them to the ones I took when he first came to my barn. I was hoping you could tell me if you see any noticeable changes in the year that i've had him or if you see anything that I should work with on him.

Here's a little info on him:
He was turned out on 80 acres of land in North Carolina until he was three and a half. Then he was in upstate New York and two months before he turned four we began riding him. I brought him home in September of last year just after he turned four. Now, he and I are working on walk, trot, canter, and tiny cross rails. However I mostly ride him western. Eventually I would like to show him in some kind of jumper class, but just for fun.

And what breed do you think he could be? When I got him we thought he was an appendix quarter horse but some people say he looks arabian. Also, when I ask him to stand square, he does it, but then other time's he looks like he is "parking out" but the vet says it looks more like a fox trotters stance or something. He also has been known to pick up a "gait" instead of cantering. Not always or often but sometimes. What do you guys think?

Sorry there are so many pictures, thanks for checking it out!!


Eating hay after he arrived:

More hay :

Even MORE hay but from the other side:

Us standing next to him:


Not the most attractive picture of me:

Three months after I got him, it was winter. Nice fuzzy coat:

Eating when he was SUPPOSED to be working:

He looks sleepy:

Trot/canter transition:

What a cutey, he was going like that for a whole circle:

I love when his mane flys:

His front legs look funny but he's moving :) :

Standing in the wash area:

I can hardly ever get him to stand square unless I'm riding, and when he does, I never have the camera:

Falling asleep AGAIN:

He cut his nose sticking his face through the fence:

Drinking out of the trough:

Going back to his turnout:

I think he looks alot better. He looks happier, and healthier. He has gained more weight and is just soooo adorable! I love that face!

Where in NY are you?

As for breed: possibly QH/TB cross or something around there. He looks almost like a QH/TB cross that boards with my horse

Aw thank you :)

The vet first told me that he would need to gain three hundred pounds. You could count his ribs from ten feet away. I'm glad you noticed that he gained weight =]

I actually live in CT but I go up to an area near Saratoga Springs (about 45 minutes north) a lot.

PM me if you want more info, as i'm guessing you're from NY. You might know the place I got him from.. hm... LOL

Yeah there is a noticable change in his weight. He still needs to gain a few more pounds, but he isn't extremely skinny like he was.
You did a good job with him!

I'm sure I've heard of the place!!! I am located probably 20 minutes away from Saratoga Springs.
I used to live in CT though! Hehe
