Smrobs: I'm definitely glad he's feeling better enough to be obnoxious! I KNEW her horse's apparent calm behavior couldn't be ONLY her training, given how scrawny those fellas were! I will be completely and totally happy if I wake up one morning and measure him at a few inches taller LOL.
That being said, I finally made it out with a measuring tape today. We taped him at 12.2 Hands. Crossing my fingers that he can grow another 8 inches!!!! The way he eats, he may well make it LOL
Anyway, went out today and tried my hand at using a thinning comb to trim down his mane. It was a first try and his hair was a bit wavy from the running braid, so it came out a little "meh". I'll work on evening it out a little more another day when it's less fluffy in spots.
I also noticed that little ginger hairs are starting to poke out of some of the big facial wounds. YAY!!!! =D He won't be franken-pony forever! His leg still looks like crap, so I blue koted it again, then cold hosed his castration wound. Again, not his favorite thing in the world, but this time I was more considerate of pressure.
Here's some pix of Strider as of this afternoon:
"Whatcha got there?"
