So today a new horse arrived at our barn. Now, he's a rescue from a situation where they were not feeding him or paying any attention to him whatsoever.
I did not see his prior situation, but my mother did. According to her, he was in a pasture without grass, was not grained, and did not have hay. Apparently he had also eaten his wooden lean-to so far down that it was basically a skeleton of a building.
My question is, in your opinions, does this horse look underweight to you? And if so, how underweight?
My mother says he's about 350 lbs underweight but I've heard others say he's at a healthy weight. We have the vet coming out to see him tomorrow so then we'll know for sure. Until then, I figured I'd just ask you all.
I'm just curious about your view of him.
He's 10 years old and is 16 hh.
