these are the latest pics, taken monday. let me know what you guys think (conformation).
remember when we got her in oct 06, she only weighed 934#, was rated a "5" on the body conditioning scale by our local equine nutritionist, and as of this past sat. she is up to 1023#. she is on his (e.n.) feeding program. she also had 5 weeks of training during the interim period, so thats why its taking so long to put on weight. so i know in advance that she's still underweight. oh yeah, she is 16'hh and an appendix (qh/tb) maiden mare.
She looks to have pretty sound conformation to be perfectly honest! just the obvious weight and muscle to be gained in all the right places!
I have a rescued hanoverian x tb that i got as a 4month old already away from his mother and in an awful mess! 3yrs down the line he still isnt fully upto weight! (below him as a 4month old in a tine lean to shed he was kept in, completely in the dark)
And this is him today
So please dont worry-she'l get there, just a matter of time! Im having to wait for tennyson to stop growing before he can put all of his efforts into putting weight on and less into going up and out in the most bizar and ugly ways! (gangly babies!)
