What A Difference A Year Makes
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!

He certainly has come a long way and filled out into a lovely fellow.
Weight gain for the win – there’s so much more of him to love now 🙂
I like seeing how his form has improved in just a year as well. What a cool kid.
Yes! I’m trying to slowly turn him into a chunky monkey 😉
Wow!! Crazy how much Red and Simon have in common. Red was about the same weight if not skinnier when I got him in Sept.
Simon looks great!! You’ve done a great job!!
Wow props to you for turning him into such a hunk!! Lovely!
I didn’t do much… I just pay the bills haha.
Congrats on owning him a whole year.
Wow! He filled out nicely this last year and looks soo pretty!
Congrats on 1 year! He’s filled out a lot! Good job getting him chunkier 🙂
Wow what a transformation! You guys look fantastic… great job with him 🙂
Wow, even just the difference between the first two photos, July and September 2012, is dramatic. He looks great now and it’s only the beginning!
The first thing I noticed was his nicely filled out neck! You guys look much better balanced and put together this year. Nice work! :0)

oh my goodness- this gives me hope for wiz! hopefully one day he’ll be fat and have a neck… it can happen! And wow, he has really cute form over the bigger jumps! He’s going to be fantastic! I mean, he already is, but even more so 🙂
Wow! He’s really filled out. Congrats on one year!
Wow! He doesn’t even LOOK like the same horse. You should be super proud- he looks very handsome and fit 🙂
Simon looks great! You’ve done an awesome job with him.
Love the photographic timeline. He looks fabulous!
It’s been great to watch you guys progress, but it’s even cooler seeing all the photos side by side like this. Nice job with him! Can’t wait to see where you go next.
Wow. You can really tell the difference. He looks awesome!
I love how BIG his shoulder has gotten. He has made some amazing transformations. You should be really really proud!
He is definitely looking the best ever!!!!

Was he a rescue? In the first photo he looks a lot like what my first horse (a rescue) looked like when I first got her.
