She just looks like a stocky girl to me. Many of the QH/Paint lines are very stocky and they look fat to folks used to the TB look.

Our mare, Lady, is one of these, too (14.2+ hh, 1100 lbs). She is a big butt, stocky girl, but quick like the wind and will go all day on the trail with energy to spare.


On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Hey it's fine with me if she's just a stocky woman! She's just been out at pasture doing nothing for years so I figured she was out of shape and overweight. I'm still new to this so I don't really know how to distinguish between stocky and overweight.

Try doing a body condition scoring evaluation on your horse. You can find several on the internet, e.g. Body Condition Scoring of Horses

It's a more reliable way to get an idea if your horse is too thin or too fat than just look or weight.

She could stand to lose a few pounds. She looks really sweet
