    Improving topline & other suggestions?

    So we bought a new gelding about a week and a half ago. He's really fluffy but needs to gain about 100 pounds, he needs to work on muscling and get re-shod. I've wormed him and he's getting his teeth done on Friday. He already looks a lot better so I am going to start conditioning him, and I would love opinions on how to do it the best.

    I'd love to get suggestions on how to improve his condition. It is getting chilly here but I usually make it out to the barn every day so it's no problem. He is most definitely not perfect but has a heart of gold.

    Here are some photos of him (I like his butt.):

    I would try to include some hill work. I do a few spurts of backing my gelding uphill on a leadline once he's nice and warmed up.
