I am terrible about taking conformation photos. I either forget, or I take such bad photos that I am embarrassed to share them. Somehow, my boys always come out looking like lunkheads even though they're both pretty handsome fellows.
When Chemaine Hurtado, owner and trainer at Symphony Dressage Stables, was here two weeks ago, she nodded appreciatively at Izzy's developing topline. His neck is getting rounder and the bulge under his neck is getting smaller. She liked how his body was shaping up.
While I don't take many saddleless photos, Izzy's breeder/first owner did. Over the weekend, I started to dig through the pictures that she gave me just to see if I could see any appreciable differences in how his body is shaping up. The verdict? Not really. I see him too often to recognize the changes in his body.
Upon closer inspection though, that hind end does look like it might have come from Inschallah. Love me a good booty!
