Do you know what poverty lines are? For those that don't, see the dimple in the butt that follows the curve of the cheek there? It is about two inches in from the back of the butt. That is a poverty line. The chestnut has them. The black doesn't. The chestnut needs more weight - poverty lines are a good way of telling that.
