Gypsy - One Year Ago vs. Now
2 Attachment(s)
We took our old Morgan mare out driving yesterday and we managed to get a few pictures snapped. I was looking back on it, and I realized we have a picture taken in almost the exact same spot from way earlier this year [January 2012]. It was the first time we'd driven her, and at that time seemed like a death-or-glory mission. Just looking at the two pictures in comparison, the differences are amazing.

First picture her head was raised, she was unfocused, trotting recklessly. Not to mention I was driving her casual-rein like a western trail horse. :-) We also have worked out a few minor harnessing issues, (not including the breast collar, which looks like it slipped down a bit into an awkward position.) But second picture I am actually giving her guidance with the reins, and she is walking calmly forward. Before yesterday she hadn't been driven in a few months, so she took to it quite well.

It's definitely a nice change, but the poor mare is a little out of shape from being laid off for a while. Also our cart now is properly adjusted into 'winter-mode' and has gotten a few aesthetic upgrades as well.

She looks so much calmer and more relaxed.

Just read about the slipped breast collar, glad you got that fixed.
She sure looks nice in harness!!

What a fun vehicle to have.
