Talking Then and now; Goodness Gracious.

Ok, so this is Gracie, my almost yearling Quarter Horse filly. The first two pictures were taken late May or early April, at about 7 months when I first got her. The rest of the pictures are her today. I'm just so happy with how she's been coming along, and wanted to share. Any and all critiques welcome. =]

Then.





Now.







I know the warps hide her legs, but we were trying them on. So cute. =]

I love the fuzzy weanling/yearling stage. They look sooo cute! She's very cute, makes me want my colt to start growing up! And my mare to have her baby!

She IS soft. I think that has a lot to do with the show sheen applied weekly. =P Or maybe the corn oil. She just looks all over healthier. You can't tell through all the fluff, but she was really thin when I first got her, and very wormy. She's managed to fill out pretty well, I don't know if that's growing up or her diet [which is 2 flakes of orchard grass hay a day, a coffee can of Omolene 300, a drop of corn oil, and a dash of garlic powder] but either way, I just think she's looking amazing!

Hi, I live in Calgary, AB. I have raised a few youngsters and know how much I learned from this experience. To ride and train on a older horse is very beneficial but when you raise a youngster the rewards are numerous.

One reward is in the close bond you have with your horse. Babies rely on us to teach them how to be around humans. What a treat it is to see the potential in a young horse and be in a position to take a foals natural talents and use these to help you train in a positive way.

Bad behaviors can be eliminated in young horses. When you purchase an older horse negative habits have been established. Now, don't get me wrong. We all establish our horses habits based on our ability and knowledge at the time. Each horse we work with brings new challenges and insights.

Young horses are as amusing as any other young animals. You can see how each one views the world by just observing them in their daily surroundings. This can tip you off about training strategies that might work well with your youngster.

Your babe looks like she has a very nice disposition and some common sense. In the one photo I can see in her eye she also has a questioning attitude. Good luck as you work through your training.

Cheers,
Equine Journalist

I'm so excited to start REALLY working with her. She is a love bug, absolutely loves to cuddle and be groomed. She is very sweet, but very obstinate. She is definitely blessed with common sense, and she learns super fast. She is very curious, but practically bomb proof. The girl spooks at nothing! I just can't wait to start riding her. She's either going to be a piece of cake or take a LOT of work, lol.
