    I don't think he's bowed either, his leg markings really throw off the eye leading them to look a bit off but they look good to me. His hock angle is his biggest flaw, a bit straighter than preferred and he's a little chunky right now (sorry!) but I'd still steal him if I saw him in the paddock ;)

    Good luck...most Appys can get fat on sticks and leaves...hard keepers are few and far between...

    Getting an easy keeper fit is a lifelong challenge (see my Porkchop) What has finally worked for us is my BO got better (or some would say worse) hay. They were feeding super high quality alfalfa and enough of us complained for years that they changed the mix to higher timothy and grass content. I also keep my boy on a dry lot with twice daily feedings- no round bales!!! He only gets enough low starch feed to hold his supplements. If you can't get a dry pen with measured feedings, a grazing muzzle is a must!! Ab work on the ground (which is actually better for the topline than the belly but it does double duty) is hay fork ab lifts. Scratch him right in front of the sheath to get him to 'lift'. I do this every time I see my boy (3 x week) and do ten-twenty with a hold of five seconds. Great for loin area as well as fat belly. Rump scratches are good for this too- scratch the rump three or four inches outside of the base of the tail and they suck up their abdomens hard...hold for a few seconds. Make sure your boy is tolerant as there is a risk of kicking. ;)
