    Does Anyone Have......

    Any pictures of what a thoroughbred should look like when it is the right weight? I know my mare is underweight, but Im not entirely sure how she should look when filled out. Any pictures would be helpful to me. Or, if you could give me a description of how she should look.

    Run your hand over her ribcage with light pressure, you should be able to feel her ribs, but not see them :) that's the trick I use.

    Here's a picture of my mare. She's at the right weight grocery wise but she could use some more muscle along her neck, topline and butt. She is right now at the perfect weight, I wouldn't want her any thinner than she is now.
