The transformation of Adana

on .

Our lovely old Elfenglanz mare, Excelsior Adana, suffers from Cushings disease.  This year her coat did not come out as well so we decided to clip her, as we were worried about heat exhaustion due to the early warm weather and her advancing age (24 years).

This mare has never been backed and has not had much handling (apart from feet, teeth and worming), as she has always been a broodmare, howeve she let us clip her with no drugs or twitches...an example of the wonderful temperament of this breed.

Here is the transformation...
