Okay 2011 was my first year breeding. I was fortunate enough to have three absolutely gorgeous and healthy foals in 2012. I always knew that they go through that 'ugly' stage where you can hardly look at them but I was not prepared for the upside-down necks....! The muscling seems heavier underneath- particularly on one of the foals. They were all so brilliantly uphill when they were born. Please tell me that this is just a phase they are going through and it goes away when they grow up and fill out...!?
My little girl looked hideous with all her winter hair... Huge blocky head etc... But now that she's clipped in prep for shows she's the swan I remember her being!!! And she feels extra beautiful I guess, she sure arches her neck and struts her stuff now!!
