    What do you think?

    Hey just want to know your opinions on my horse bijou here! What do you think of his coat? Do you know any different grooming tehniques that might help? Do you think I could do anything better?
    Just want your advice, anything and everything is helpful :)
    Also the picture of the dark brown horse getting hosed/washed is Valley, can I have your opinions on him too? X

    The buckskin/ lighter brown one seems to have a very healthy coat. He might look a bit better with a short bridle path and the part of the mane near his ears on the side with the rest of the mane!!!!

    The darker brown/bay also looks to have a healthy coat.

    I agree that their coats look good. But clip the bridle path and they could use a little weight.

    As we don't know what the owners do with these horses it's not right to say they need more weight - for all we know they are eventing fit or just come out of racing. Weight wise they are both fine but the darker horse needs to muscle up.

    Coat wise looking OK.

    Adding freshly ground Flax seed to their daily feed will really bring out the shine. You can grind it easily in a small coffee grinder. 1 cupful each daily will do wonders and if freshly ground will help with joints as well.
    Fulford15 and squigley like this.

    Thankyou I will definetly try that :) Also thanks for backing me up about their weight but I do understand what the others are saying as Bijou (the lighter one) I think is the right weight but im working on his muscles but Valley (the darker one) is just off the track 2 weeks so I'm not starting to work him just yet, Im letting him have time off in pasture to settle so as for his weight I honestly don't think he's too bad or out of form but im allowing his fitness to go a bit as I don't want to be riding a racing fit horse
    Thank you so much
