    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.

    Thank you again everyone! I plan on getting my mare a little fatter, does anyone have any guess as to how much she can gain before she is at a decent weight? I was thinking if she was around 1000lbs it would be pretty good

    They both have them, which is why I said they appear to be in the same condition.

    I vote more weight. But, I like a few extra lbs on my horses.
