    Short update: nothing too exciting, but Baly's been getting tied up to get her grain. Since she has been in with the big girls, she has been waiting at the gate, easy to walk up to and catch, and has even followed me around some. She's been really good about tying, and although I haven't handled her a lot, she hasn't been as jumpy. She is going to be going out on pasture sometime this week with just Remi, so I'm excited to see how she fills out on just a decent grass pasture with all she can eat. I stood her up next to Remi tonight out of curiosity, I think she is going to easily be 15-15.1 hands if not a little taller. Remi is currently about 14.1-14.2 at the hip.

    Waiting at the gate. Hope stole her front row seating... DSCN3506.JPG

    Thanks, she does look a little more ribby than that picture shows, but she really doesn't look like the same horse other than her face. She looks a mile long though, in person she looks like she has a little shorter back. I'm very happy to be seeing some of the rough working off of her though.
    I'm not at all surprised, when I went to look at her originally I was amazed at how tall she already was, and she has probably grown an inch or more (at the hip at least :rofl: since I've had her. I don't think she will be as thick as Remi will be, but definitely probably going to be a bit taller. Hope still makes her look like a pony though, I'll have to get a picture of the 3 of them standing next to each other.
    Thank you! She is transforming about like I had hoped. Still pretty minimal handling, but she isn't the same horse that the seller ran down the chute onto my trailer.

    I had a feeling she’d bloom! It’s going to be so cool watching her grow up!
