Sorry to bore you with Bo Bo pictures, but look at how good he now looks, when compared to two months ago. After two months of senior supplement, and lots of riding/exercise, he is now developing a hind end that can drive forward, a top line that supports his abdomen (bottom line) and a bottom line that supports his back (top line).
Amber and I were a little worried that he would never resemble the "old" Bo again, but it appears that he is coming along nicely. I need to scan some old pics of Bo and Amber showing, so you can see just how handsome old Bo Bo can look!
When Amber first got Bo back and we started riding him, it was rather embarrassing, because he looked like a typical, backyard, underweight, scrawny, Arab. Not anymore!
As my mom likes to say, "Cabalero is muy guapo!"
I always wondered why his original owner chose to call him "Bo." I know Cabalero sounds like "Cabolero," but Bo? I would have called him Cabalero or Cabbi, I think, but Bo it was, and Bo it is.
When my kids were little, they both called horses "Bo Bo's," even after Amber returned him to his owner. It was a name that stuck, and we still drive down the road and say, "Hey! Look at the pretty Bo Bo's!"
