My geldings improvements
6 Attachment(s)
Here's my boy :) first two pictures are when i bought him 9/9/10, third picture is when he arrived at my barn on 10/1/10 and the last 3 pictures are from since then. Is it just me or does he ALREADY look like he's filling out?

He is :)
I notice that with rescues, there's a visible difference in only a few weeks :) You'll be amazed in a month or two. Good job with your kiddo :)

Great! I figured maybe i was overoptimistic. He's looking like a diamond in the rough, but he's still young!

He looks like he's getting a lot better! When I'm able to I would love to rescue horses :)

Great, i'm so happy to hear that others are seeing improvements as well! I've rescued a few so far, he's by far the skinniest :(

He does look like he's filling in some. I'm assuming you've had him thoroughly vetted? He looks a bit pot bellied in some of the pics.

He's super cute; what are you going to use him for?

Yepp on the 30th. I probably sound completely uneducated in terms of horses, but how do i check for wolf teeth? I've never owned a 2 year old, but i'm assuming he has them.. correct? He was alot more potbellied when i first met him, but he's actually filling out as opposed to getting fatter. He does NOT have worms and we've dewormed him several times this month, including daily dewormer. His sheath was really swollen and i went to clean it and he had a huge bean, so i'm hoping the swelling will go down.

Keep up the good work, there certainly is a big improvement there, well done!

Thank you Sarahver! Do you think he still looks pot bellied in the later pictures? Or does he look like he's gaining weight in all the right places?
