Rescue TB - Before and "During" her Transformation

Okay...first time posting pics so hopefully it works! The first three pics are of Tara when I first got her...the one where she's just standing in the field with me was when she was still at the rescue. That's how she acted all the time...half dead I couldn't believe she looked like that after having been there for three months, but maybe that's just me...The one with her nose out is right after we brought her to her new home. Already feeling better! I got her two Marches ago, and the last two pics are during the summer after I got her, I can't remember exactly when (the dark splotches on her were from fly spray). She's not eating in the one picture...just sniffing around!

Now, she's fatter than that. A friend said today that she'd never seen a TB so fat, but the vet said she's perfect, so I'm happy! Her feet are 1000x better too.

What do you think? How's her conformation? Sorry it's kind of hard to tell with the saddle and mask

wow, wasn't sure if that is even the same horse, but clearly it is. I love the difference in her energy way more than the changes in her body. the first pic she just looks like she is about to give up on everything, and closed off to any kind of interaction with humans, who up until you, did her no favors. It
is really remarkable and apparent that whatever relationship she has with you is a good one, as she acknowledges you in the last two pictures. I bet that bond alone is what created a bulk of the positive charges in her body. That and alot good food! Good luck!

Thank you! She definitely acts like a completely different horse. She's energetic and so, so happy!

Wow, she doesn't look like the same horse!! You have done a fantastic job with her . I must say, the only thing that I can spot about her conformation is that she appears to have a slight roach back in that first pic, but that could have been due to the fact that she was starving and all her bones were sticking out. Wow, she looks amazing!! Great job.

Thank you I took a guess as to what "roach-backed" is, but I searched it to be sure. I think it was because she was so doesn't look like that at all now. Looks perfect to me, but of course her mom would say that But, really, her spine doesn't stick up at all.
