How does he look now? Still to thin?

My horse has gained some weight since you all agreed that he was too thin but his progress has slowed. I couldn't find cool calories 100 so I bought bodybuilder 4000.

Please give me your opinions.

The first pic is of him now. His ribs can only be seen in certain lighting. Sorry about the dirty camera lens. I need to clean it!

The second pic is when he was too thin.

The last pic is of him in the summer. You can see the layer of fat over his ribs. Just right? Too much fat?

What should my goal be? A bit more weight?

Thanks so much for all of your help and advice:)

Summer pic is perfect! Get him like that and you'll be fine- And he looks decent in his recent shape.

He looks a little thin... You could just add a little oil or linseed for him to gain some fat but not have him hyper or increasing any feed.

He looks great in the summer!

He's still a bit on the thin side for my liking.. though 1048734987% better than how he was before!

If you keep it up, he'll look even better this upcoming summer and get a better thicker coat for next winter.

I'm doing the same with my boy right now.. the important thing is to make sure all the bases are covered and he's getting enough exercise to keep and develop muscle.

Hope to see updates in the future!

He's a touch lean, but within the acceptable range. I would much rather see a horse at his weight than way too fat. You probably could keep doing exactly what you are since he is obviously putting some weight on and then adjust it once he has filled out a touch more.

I agree, lean in the summer pic but still looking a ton better there. I'd aim for that.

Lean in the summer pic? Really? He looked perfect in the summer pic - at least to me.

He doesn't really look underweight to me per say...he looks more under muscled. Have you altered or lessened his exercise? Looks like his neck and topline are slightly wasted but he's got a bit of a paunch. In the summer pic he looks just perfect to me, very nice and fit :) Beautiful boy BTW
