BCS of Arabian Gelding

Hey everyone. This photo was taken towards the beginning of last summer.

I know it's hard to tell from one photo, and no photos from behind, but what would you say his Body Condition Score would be. Do you think he looks just a bit underweight? (After this he was off for a very long time with scratches lameness and got pretty fleshy).

I don't think he is underweight, but he is lacking muscle (from being off for a long time like you said) form what I can see he has a steep croup and long pasterns, nice short back and such an adorable face! Could you post more pics soon?

Oh yes, he is soooo out of shape! I'm slowly bringing him back though. It's been a tough year with last winter being so terrible, him being lame this summer and me moving this fall. Now I'm having vehicle problems, so hopefully everything comes together soon so I can work with him!
He has the most un-like Arabian croup..
And yep, I'll probably be posting his progress, when we get into a routine, in a journal, full of lots of pictures!

Thanks for taking the time to comment, much appreciated.

Uhm...now you have to video it! ;)

I can try! Haha. I do have some pics of it I can go searching for after work. I have a video of him the other day I set up some cones to work through and he came behind me and lifted each one, flipping it around. I only caught the tail end of his antics. He's a bugger. I'm not sure how to upload videos..eep! So challenged with technology..

No, he is not underweight. He looks to be about 4.5, which is right where an Arab should be...
