Different Horse?

Last year I bought a 4 year old colt at the time he was noticeable downhill built, obese, and pretty wooly compared to the horses in my state. For some months now I've looked at him thinking 'he doesn't look like the same horse' and then the other day a friend commented he looks completely different now. So today I was looking at pictures from when I bought him, it's humorous really. Other than being shed out and in shape now he has grown taller like I figured he would, almost completely level now. He's not my little fat horse anymore lol.

Link at 5, almost a year later and when I first got him last year.

He's just growing up :)

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
– I love you, Mudpie!

Yep, but it's amusing. Most people just saw what was infront of them and I used to find him akward too. I just knew (and hoped) he would grow up

He's looking good! Funny how much they can change! That's kind of my situtation with my mare I bought last year as well. She looked like a yearling, and this year she looks like a gorgeous little mare! Here, you can see my thread I posted on her awhile ago: Belle outgrew her halter already!

Mudpie has grown up so much, too! He used to be so awkward and lanky, and he's really filled out ;)

SaddleStrings- your horse is very pretty and has changed a lot

Mudpie- I used to find him kinda odd because his back is so short and he was so downhill lol but his front is catching up to his butt, he looks like a horse now not an awkward colt
