TRM BlogHop - Before and After

I haven't done a bloghop in a good long while, and since daylight is becoming more and more elusive, I figured other bloggers would be spending more time penned up indoors like I am and looking for a way to release that energy.

Fear not, I come bearing gifts of the bloghop kind!

Most people I know of got their horses from good, honest sellers, so this isn't a rescue type before/after deal (although, if you horse is a rescue case, go ahead and share!). More like a before and after of their training progress, personality changes, or even of them growing up!

I have shared tons of before and after Spud media, so #sorrynotsorry for the additional photo dump that is about to occur.

We will start with some Before and After's of Suzie's conformation:

March 2013 - after about a week of having her home.
June 2016 - retired and looking pretty snazzy for
23 years old!

And when we did the riding stuff:

Our first ride in March 2013.

Reining clinic in the Summer of 2015.

Doing the Jumpy Thing in March 2014.

And then going into the Hunter ring August 2015 like nbd.

Attempting Reining in 2014.

Reining at the end of 2015.

Can't forget the little man Spud and his amazing change:

That time he actually looked like a potato.
September 2014.

This Spring, 2016.

And of course, the changes in his driving training:

From Green Pony + Green Owner, September 2014.

To respectable citizens in August 2016.

Plus, his sweet harness upgrade:

Because everyone starts somewhere... right?
November 2014

He isn't so sore on the eyes now.
August 2016.

So let's see the pic spamming! Bloggers, you know what to do!
