Hey everyone it's been a while since I've been on here but I was hoping to get some critiques on my new Haflinger pony Bella. I brought her home in September and I have some pictures from before I got her/when I got her/over the past couple of months.
What I have noticed so far is that she toes out in the front and in the back (more so in the back). However, if I can get her to stand square, it is almost unnoticeable unless you are really looking. Unfortunately I have not had anyone I could have take the pictures for me so its hard to keep her from moving around. She tries to follow me as soon as I move away from her head (therefore hard to get her to stand still). As soon as the snow is gone I will see what I can do about getting some pictures of her squared up.
She also seems to be a little overweight (her nickname before I got her was the fat pony...). She currently gets free choice hay and Triple Crown Lite (one pound twice a day). She was originally getting the 12% supplement but that is very hard to get where I am located so she was switched to the Triple Crown Lite (all with the guidance/advice of the vet and a Triple Crown representative). Her previous owners mentioned that there is a slim possibility she may be pregnant and she does seem to have put on some weight (despite her being on a diet/being worked more consistently than she was before). What do you guys think based on the pictures? Might just be her winter coat. The vet is coming out to see her about another issue so we may do a PPE.
Some of them are just for fun but I'm putting them in chronological order...
Thanks in advance!
