He doesn't look overweight at all to me. I could only imagine what your vet would say about my haflingers. LOL.
I used to have a mustang out of Nevada and even at 5 years old he never had the big muscles on the hind like my other horses, but he sure could move pretty!
Does your boy get a lot of turn-out where he can excersize on his own and run around? That will help some when you can't ride. If he is still young I wouldn't be overly concerned right now with building up too much muscle until he has matured a bit. 5-7 years of age is when you tend to see the best muscle development on a mustang it seems.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
