Smile Hey, I'm new :D

Hi everyone, My names Josie, I'm from Australia :)
I have a 5 year old TB gelding named Banjo
He's normally pretty quiet, but has only been trained up in the basics, so I'm struggling to teach him things I don't even inderstand!
But we're getting there
I've attatched some pictures of him, when I first got him he was very underweight and quite wormy, his old owner hadnt been feeding him at all.
I've had him for about 4 months, and have been feeding him a very basic diet of lucerne hay, any grains or anything too sweet make his glands swell up and he gets cranky and in pain.
Then some after pics, where you can see he's still a bit ribby but his coats way shinier (no that's not just the light, when I first got him he was all dandruffy and his coat was dull)
Then theres a piccie of me and a friend mucking around with their shetty
We didnt actually RIDE her like this, just sat on her double.
Anyway, hope the pictures work!!
Josiie

Welcome! She looks a lot better and she's gorgeous! I know how hard it is to get weight on OTTB's. I've got a two year old im training myself and were going throught the basics ourselves.

Don't worry, the number of people who think he's a mare...
The person I kept him with until our fences were done, was always calling him a mare, for over 3 weeks
