I agree he is pretty weedy looking, I would like to see him more fit, some added muscle, but not fat.
What do you suggest for adding muscle without stress to joints? Trail walks? THanks
hes just at a weird stage, the summer after my boy turned two, boy wasnt he funny looking, from 2 to three they start looking more like a horse.. he will be finee
He very well could be at a funny looking stage, he's gone through enough of them since I've had him! To add to that, I took pics a week before I took these, and he looked ribby, and thin, and these pics, a week later, he looks completely different. Thanks!
There is no way his growth is stunted. There has to be a very serious lack of nutition to cause that. It is arguable whether his nutition is ideal, but it is obviously not so lacking as to inhibit growth.
I don't agree with the "weedy" comments at all, although everyone is entitled to their opinion. He is 20 months old...a fat 20 month old is an unhealthy 20 month old. He is still putting on height, and is no where near the age when he will start filling out. He shows no rib, the tailhead is not showing fat, but is not showing underweight either, his rump is round and his flanks are normal, and his withers are quite convex. He is a leggy, lanky 20 month old - hardly what I would term "weedy". If he looks the same a year and a half from now, I would term him "rangey", same as "weedy", but that is a long way off...
What do the terms "weedy" and "rangey" mean? I honestly don't think I've really ever heard of them before. As for him being leggy, there is no doubt he is leggy, has been since I got him!! And he is pretty narrow, def nowhere near to being filled out, or even starting to fill out, he is still adding height for sure!
