WarmBlood or Appendix?

Hi long time lurker first time poster. Winchester is a new horse to me. Pre purchase Vet said Warm Blood. My Vet thought Appendix. What do you guys think?

Also I've been trying to put some weight on him and he has put some good weight on in the last month. How much more do you think he needs? He is 16.2 10 yrs old

Welcome to the forum! Can you repost the pictures? It's not showing up for me :(

Can't see your picture. Did you link it from your email? If so, that's why we can't see it. You need to upload the pic to a hosting site like Photobucket and then link it from there.

Pretty impossible to tell for sure from those pics. For a more accurate idea, we'd need a squared-up side on pic.

However, from those pics, I would say appendix. Most warmbloods that I've seen are stouter than what your horse looks. From the pics you put up, he has a very thoroughbred, racy look to him.

Looks like he's had some bad saddle sores that healed up, too.

One More Picture

Also I'm having a hard time figuring where the saddle should sit on this horse. I bought a hih wither pad with pads where his withers are sunken in but I still can't figure exactly how far up the saddle should be placed. Those white saddle spots were there when I got him.

From what limited things I can see in the pictures posted, i'd lean towards appendix as well. Please make sure you have a saddle that fits him properly as you can see he's had some saddle fit issues previously.

Welcome to the forum! :)

How much more weight?

I'm feeding him 12 lbs daily Legends Performance pelleted and 3 lbs of Legends Ultra Plus per day split into 2 feedings AM and PM and round bale hay free choice 24/7.

He has put on some good weight but I don't know how much more he needs to be back to his proper weight. How much should he weigh when he is at his ideal weight?

How much do you think he weighs now?

Sorry for the rapid fire questions, i'm just trying to learn, I've never had to deal with an under weight horse before

What has your vet said?

Honestly, he doesn't look that underweight to me. Under muscled, yes. Underweight, not really.

And that last pic...DEFINITELY seeing appendix, not warmblood.
