Yeah, Sara, that's what I was thinking. He looks pretty good in the 2nd batch of photos.
The only place where he looks ribby is the ones in his stall.

I just don't want to turn him back into the fat lazy horse he once was...since he's lost alot of the fat that he once had (when I first bought him) and he's had so much more energy...his endurance has gotten better and he loves to work now.

Here's the video of him before I bought him
that shows how over-weight he was haha

How much grain should I give him? I was just thinking one cup a day (meaning one coffee cup's a 1 pound coffee cup). Do you think that would be a good ammount?

I don't think he's bad at all. He just needs some muscle.

I know this is off subject, but I must say that he moves WAY better in this video before you bought him, he is not coming up short strided and has a wonderful English Gate on him.
