Well, I ended up picking up my new horse today. The last two I asked for critiques on I ended up passing. My new horse is a 13 year old Paint gelding. He is 15 hands but seems he's lost quite a bit of muscle from summer to now...I am planning on worming him and I would like to do a power pack (if anyone could give me more info on them? I've never actually used one) And he is in with my horses now. They were all wormed at the beginning of the month but would you advise that I re-worm them all again as I give the new guy a power pack? Any insight on that issue is appericiated. He also did colic last month. It was gas colic and they gave him banamine and after a few hours he apparently let the farts rip and he was fine.
Anyway, so I would like to know what y'all think about him. I know he needs muscle..his butt had none and his spine sticks out and is sunken in around it..my mare looked like this when I got her but with proper feedings she filled out nicely. I do have pix of him from summer from the person I bought him from, which I will post. (the person I bought him from is also the trainer I sent one of my horses to previously) Im not sure why he's lost so much muscle but maybe you guys can comment on that.
He is bombproof and anyone can supposidly ride. He's a cutie for sure! Any insight is appericiated :)
I don't exactly have any great conformation pictures but I will post what I have. I just would like to know if you see anything glairingly wrong with him or opinions on his weight/muscle...anything!! ..thanks
I will get better pictures when I go back to feed in a bit cause im in the way in most of them :)
First two are from summer, the rest are from today.
