Does Gidget have muscle atrophy at the withers?

Okay,yea...I nit pic but I was wondering if she was having muscle atrophy because he withers are more prominent than when I first got her but back then she was a fat cow so getting her into working shape might have helped redefine the wither area....what do you think?

Before and after

Last winter

Last summer

When I first got her

IMO they actually look cleaner now than they used to. Ofcourse, I'm no expert, but I don't really see anything to worry about. Is her saddle fit well?

Yea,I have 3 saddles for her. Wintec with interchangle gullet. It fits her really well. She has to go to a wide in that one and she isn't upset when I put it on her.I have a treeless and she loooooves it! I also just got a barrel saddle and I used my HAF pad with it the other day and it fits well with the pad and isn't upset...sooooo I think everything is good. I was just wondering if she looked okay at the withers.
