I was also told that despite putting on my big girl mean mommy pants on he is still too fat. Poor pony! Im telling you, he has seriously mastered his grazing muzzle! One tip she told me was to soak his (tiny little flake) of dinner hay. It will help bulk it up, filling him up more, and it also takes calories out of it. So we are going to try that. He definitely carries more of his fat towards the front as she was saying how he doesnt have the creasy fat butt and fat pocket over his tail yet he has a fat pocket by each shoulder. So poor, poor pony goes on yet another diet. He is going to think there is a hay shortage up in this place ;)
He isnt that fat!! This is him being super thrilled about getting a light lunge tonight. Had his appt this morning and she wanted me to give him a light lunge tonight just to get him moving a little (since we all know he doesn't do it on his own in his pasture) to help prevent him from being sore.
He did enjoy our nice short walk down the road though!
It is inane how much his hair grows. The first picture is of his mane today and the second is one of it on September 15th. You can see how uneven his braids were because he was grazing the top two off some. Since I started zip tying them up they are evening out really nicely! You can especially tell in pictures of his mane down. Pictures dont do it justice, it is crazy! Amazes me everytime I let it down!
|September 15th. Not as good of a pic but you can still really tell!|
