Slow but steady...

  

I've had Glacier for about 5 weeks, she's gained forty plus pounds. The top picture is her the day we got her, the next one is today. Can you see the improvement? It isn't my imagination is it? She has more energy too. I can actually lunge her for more than five minutes now. 
Antoinette came out again today and lunged her for me. What a neat thing too! Does the mare look happy? Well.. it is hard to tell, she always looks a little crabby- but her eyes are closed in this last picture and she at least looks content.

Seems like those Appys are tough cookies and can make good come-backs. It looks as though it won't take long with your good vittles.

She is looking so much better - like everyone else has said, much more round. Round is good!! I'm so glad she's with people who will love and care for her. I love her spots!!

Most definitely(a visible improvement)!!! That is so cool that you found her and get the chance to get her back into the best shape possible.

She's a pretty mare. Did you adopt her? Or am I missin' something. I think she definately looks like she's gianed weight!

Paige said...

Definitely not your imagination--she is packing it on

The W.O.W. factor said...

She's looking good and loving where she's at! Funny how they can become so unfit, so thin, so fast...and it takes 'ages' to see improvements when love and care is provided! Great job!
