What a difference 3 months makes.

I've had Sunny now for over three months, when I got him he was skinny, still had his winter coat, hadn't been groomed in goodness knows how long, didn't know what having his feet picked up meant, had overcrown (like curling up into his foot) hooves and although he was very placid and plesent, his manners weren't the best. He was very friendly, but could be very pushy and would shove and snatch his food from you.

Fast forward three months, and this is what he looks like...

His manners are flawless, when I take him his food he walks to the back of his stable and waits there until I have put it down and left the stable, if he accidentally stands on your feet you just say ouch and he picks his food up. He lifts his feet for me when I show him the hoof pick and touch his leg, he has been trimmed brushed, picked bathed and fed to his hearts content and is just the sweetest boy ever. I am so proud in the improvement in his weight since I got him and can't believe how far he's come. I just wanted to show you all how much he's progressed :)

Wow, he looks like a completely different horse! So much better. He looks a lot happier, too! Awesome horse you have there.

He carried me away from all my fears, and his mane was there to wipe my tears. -RIP Vegas, my best friend.

doesn't even look like the same horse anymore. I can tell that he found a good home with you.
