I've been taking my younger two to ringcraft occasionally, with the idea of showing one/both of them some time in the near future. Drake (boy) has grown his mane and right now, at almost a year old, looks almost bedraggled as he goes through what I suppose you could call "the fluffs." I'm expecting the somewhat flyaway look to smooth out as his hair grows and gains more weight, but I've looked for lots of pictures of "yearling" cavaliers and am yet to find one quite like Darwin (girl).
So, a couple of photo links:
I'm not going to be upset if she isn't "show worthy" as such, but the fact she's so lean and hairless is concerning me a bit. Shouldn't she be... well, hairier by now? She's muscular, has TONS of energy (indeed, apologies for the image quality but trying to get her to keep still is like trying to stop the tide) and eats like a horse. A Clydesdale horse! Yet she's tall and slim. She's never been trimmed at all, and has been through one season during which she moulted a bit but not excessively, and that was back in October/November.
