A lot of walkers are on the thin side, yours is slab sided and that's how most of them look. He is under weight but not by as much as you probably think so you'll have to quit comparing him to those QH's in the barn. What you need to look for is how much fat he has sitting on top of his ribs. If he has a nice pad between that and his backbone he's fine. Don't expect a big butt, broad back or a lot of padding over the sides of those ribs.
Get that roll of fat going over his ribs and muscle him up and you'll see a different horse. Just don't put him side to side with a QH!
Thank you for posting this.. My TWH needed a little weight on her but my husband keeps saying she is too skinny.. She looks to be next to his hoss of a QH.. I agree she needed a little more groceries when we brought her home 3 weeks ago but I think she is looking better.
