Izzy seems to be the exact same size to me, but that's what happens when you see the same brown face day after day. It wasn't until I was sharing media of our last lesson that I noticed one picture in particular. It was the one where I asked in the caption if he was getting bigger. As luck would have it, the photo was sitting right next to Izzy's "About" photo over in the side column. Visit the link here if you want to see what I saw - you'll need to scroll down a bit.
Izzy is definitely filling out. He has a lot more muscle than he did last summer. Now that I've helped him build all that muscle, I need to really make sure that I help him by elasticizing and suppling it.
When I bought him, I was searching for a diamond in the rough, something that I could polish and (hopefully) develop into a fancy schmancy dressage horse. Looking at him right now, I am thinking I might have just got super lucky!
