    He looks a bit pudgy to me. But, maybe more excersize is all it would take.

    muppet - Good tip with the flank!

    tiny - Ha ha yea I think your right..I don't think 1200lbs is going to be good on my guy unless its muscle weight. Now that I am getting some different eyes to look at him for me. :)) Its okay though I am not disappointed because I have been working on putting this weight on him just to see where I think he would look good at.
    I think all the rich green grass has had a helping hand too.

That might be something to consider. They sell 250 lb barrels for ~50$. It's grain free, and can be fed as roughage or normal feed. Look into it. I'll try it once hubby comes home.
    Desert I'll take a look into that tomorrow morning..I think my niece has mentioned this feed..She wanted to go in halfs w/me on it and she said it comes in a barrel that its not a sweet feed..

    He looks just fine for his breed. I really wonder if he is 16.3, though. How are you measuring him? Based on your fences, I would have guessed him at around 15 hands, give or take.

    Ive got ADHD and OCD-- aka-- I see ALL! Lol.
    Ours is a smart aleck-- I show him how to flex his head.. barley tap the reins and he bends his head all the way to my leg and stares at me out the side of his eye like he's sayin 'i got it the first 3 times' lol. Gotta love an appy!

    If you look that is normal horse fencing and two strands of barbed wire about a foot apart-- he's ever bit of 16.3hh. If you say that he's 15hh cause of the gait-- again that's 'normal sized' horse panneling and about a foot or two before the top bar-- he just stunts the size of it because he's a big ol boy, lol.

    I think he looks gorgeous. Could even stand to lose a few pounds, OR just gain some good muscle tone :) Pretty horse!

    toto ~ Again, I assure you HAVE A GREAT EYE!!!

    Sahara~ Yes he is ever bit of 16.3hh....Here is a photo of my son standing w/him and my son is six ft three...
    I am five eight and I can't reach my foot into the stirrups, I have to use a block or have him down hill from me so I can mount.
    I measured him w/one of those weight tapes and it has the height measurements on the other side. "He's a big boy"
    The reason being is he has TB back in his mothers bloodlines.
    The second photo he is down hill from the quarter horse and he is about 15hh

    I wonder if he will keep growing??? He just turned five in March..
