Talking Latest pics of my horse, Chance

Got Sis to take some pics of Chance (he tends to walk up and stick his nose in the lens when I try to take pics myself). I had an vet come out last month who does equine chiropractic work and massage because I was having trouble lifting Chance's feet when I needed to. I wanted to know if it was a physical or training problem, and it turned out to be physical (he had a vertebrae out of alignment and his right hip is frozen.) She worked on him and gave me exercises/stretches to do with him and they've really helped. She came out again today to do a follow up visit and she says he's improved a lot. I still have to do his stretches though.
Here's Chance parked out (the equine equivalent of stacking, I guess. Lol!) He'll immediately park whenever I halt him, so I'm guessing he was shown extensively at some point in his life. I am strategically placed behind him. Lol!


Stretching his topline (carrot stretchies):


More stretches:

You know I love necks and he's got the most wonderful crest!! LOL

What a difference a few months makes eh... Was it last winter you got him or early this spring?

I can't believe the change in his muscle mass and coat. He's a totally different horse!

It's actually been over a year since I first got him but he had a long way to go. This was taken the night he arrived.
