Billy was a weedy looking yearling that has blossomed into a hunk of a three year old. He has become super athletic and has learned to use his body correctly. It’s been a joy to watch this unfold.

Luckily I have been snapping pictures of Billy all along this journey so i could SEE the changes.  I knew that they would happen slowly and I might miss a few things along the way. Of course when I put the top two pictures side by side it’s pretty amazing the dramatic changes that have occurred, but watching them happen over the last 3 years has been enlightening!
