Sandie - before and after!
 
A friend of mine found an email I sent her back in November of 2008, from the day I was going to pick up Sandie! :D I was so excited and nervous, as she was my very first horse and I had only been riding at that point for 2 years! She had been rescued from a bad situation where she'd been used as a broodmare and the lovely foster home had rehabbed her back over the course of a year and put some meat on her bones (well, FAT, but better than her being the bony mess she had been!!)

Here are some photos of the day I first went to see her before I bought her:

Now almost 3 years later, here she is, my prize pony Eventer! :wink:
