Technically I should have written this post at the beginning of July, because July 2012 is when I officially became Simon’s owner. I’m a few weeks late, but I wanted to show some transformation pictures to show y’all how far we’ve come.
He went from being the scraggly horse that not many people thought was worth much, to a solid citizen with a job and some small success (that I’m sure will grow!). The biggest surprise to me is that people lately will comment how pretty he is. Now don’t get me wrong, this horse is the apple of my eye and I’ve always thought he was attractive (even when he was underweight and gangly), but nobody else shared that opinion until recently.
I’ll let the pictures tell the rest. I’m so proud of him and excited for the future.
It was a great first year of ups and downs with my horse, and I can’t wait to do next year’s post of progress pictures. I’m hoping they involve some hunter derbies and 2’6″ classes… one day!
