Rocky Mountain Juniper nr. 4 getting to look good

The first image shows how a healthy Rocky Mountain Juniper can look like if you treat it right. They never have growth like this in nature and usually in captivity they look a lot worse. Only with very well draining substrate, agressive and very frequent feeding and watering a lot and full sunshine all day they can look like this.
And then very quickly the long shoots were cut back and a nice crown appeared. Now for the first time this tree looks like it will be something special one day.
