Before and after and a just a before

Hi there,
I came to you a while back to ask for your opinions about my horses weight. I was a new horse owner, at the time, and in a predicament. My barn owner was telling me my horse was just right and his former owner was threatening to take him back because he was too thin.

Since then, I met a man, got engaged, and moved to his farm which just happened to have a large empty horse barn, a round pen, and pastures. Lucky me! I brought my horse with me and adopted my fiance's dad's overweight mini.

This week, my farrier called and asked if I'd be interested in taking another horse. Long story short, I now have a very sweet thoroughbred who's extremely underweight.

I was out taking "before" pictures of him, today, when looked at my other two, and realized how great they look.

I'd like to share their before and after pics as well as the before picture of my new boy.

They all look in great condition now (and once the new guy fills in I would love to see pictures!)

Honestly I think your better off getting out of that barn if he thought your horse was in great condition.. on the flip side the guy you bought the horse from couldn't just "take" him back if you paid for him
