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.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

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

*whispers* Senior feed works wonders.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

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.
