Whoever said he was a healthy weight? Whack that sob in the head with a 2X4, hard. It makes me so angry to see horses like this, im glad you got him.

I'm in the way too thin camp.

Good on you for giving him a new home.

Ribs and hip bones? Definitely too thin!
Glad you're taking care of him.

He is definitely a skinny horse. I agree whoever thought he's a healthy weight must not know a lot about horses :/.

I'm glad he is in your care and that the vet will be coming out soon. Keep us updated on him!

If anyone else wants an update, it's only been 3 days but I think he's looking better already.

Who ever said that horse is at a healthy weight is an idiot. That horse is thin and I am glad he is now receiving the care he needs!

How could anyone say he was healthy? He does look better even after only 3 days.
