I know I do not often write about my wonderful 27 yo Morgan mare, but she is doing great. She is living the life of luxury as my retired horse. She gets plenty of hay, her senior grain, and lots of turnout. I brush her and keep her trimmed up, because even though she may no longer show, she still deserves it.
I took some pictures today and I am really pleased with how she looks. There have been times in the past when she has not looked "good" to me, but right now I am pleased with her body condition. Of course, having owned her now for over 16 years, I remember a much younger horse, so to me, she looks OLD. She has grayed out so much over her body, especially her face. :( But she is young at heart and still gives me the evil mare face each morning. So I know she is feeling good. :)
There is nothing quite like your first horse. <3 :)
