I have to disagree. I know what you're talking about, I've seen a number of Thoroughbreds with that same body type, but I'm not speaking about her ribs. You can see her bones all through her spine and her hips. Her hide is stretched gaunt, and it's obvious she needs more food. If she looks this way all the time, I'd advise calling a vet because regardless of body type, that mare is bone rack thin. A belly doesn't mean anything, it means the nutrients aren't going to the right place. And the fact that her foal is so thin only confirms that.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
