Can you guys tell me what score you would consider these guys?

I have a Morgan mare that got an injury on her leg a few months ago, over the next month she lost a bit of weight. I have had her on a good diet and she seems to me to be doing better but I have never done the scoring system and I am not sure I am doing it right.
The second horse is a paint gelding I took in as a rescue. He was abandoned and saved by his neighbors. They got him UTD on shots then I got him.
If its not to much trouble I would appreciate if you guys could take a look for me. They both still need weight, but what score would you give them on The Henneke scale?

5 too. I think you need a vet to remove those dangly things on the chestnut's belly!

IMO they don't need more weight; they're both perfect. The paint MIGHT be ok with another 20 lbs or so, but not more than that. They could use more muscle though.

I'd say about a 5, too. :)

*whispers* Senior feed works wonders.

I agree with Endiku. They look pretty good. Just need some muscling.

Yeah, missed the last bit of your post OP... those danglies distracted me! I agree with Endiku, neither needs any more weight. They look good & you don't want them fat. I think going of the Henneke scale, about 4.5 is generally perfect.

I agree they look perfect weight to me just needing some muscling and toning up they should be absolutely amazing in a few months :). Good work

Very nice looking horses. They don't look like they need more weight, just more muscle.
