Nessie's progress

Almost a year ago I first posted here with pics of skinny Nessie who I leased for a while and then I finally bought her in February. She had been a brood mare out to pasture for about 10 years and hadn't been ridden. I have taken very good care of her and am puttiing long slow miles on her to prepare for some longer trail rides when the weather cools off in the fall. Here are before and after pics.

Thanks, everyone. Her tail has grown some and maybe even her mane! I think I'll try MTG and see what happens with the mane.
