Do you see skinny or just right?
I taped Sam yesterday and he measured out just over 900 lbs (940 lbs). He is a cow bred Quarter Horse. From my research, the QH should average between 1000 and 1300 lbs, the average being 1100 lbs.
I think he looks skinny, but I am NO judge of this, especially since Sam was obese for so long, I think he looks poor.
My barn owner, who specializes in warmbloods thinks he looks great.
I've decided to ooch him up to about 1000 lbs, not a huge weight gain, but a bit better. I would like him to enter our southern Midwest winter closer to 1100.
The first photo is from this spring.
The second photo is from today. I didn't have time to drag him from the stall. I think he is too "tucked up" in the groin/loin area.
Thank you for your opinions.
