how is his weight?

I see my horse to often to tell if he is gaining weight. My mom came out and hadn't seen him since october and said he'd lost almost 250 lbs! So does his weight look decent in these photos, or does he still look that drastically under weight? He looks a lot better to me....

Sorry there are no "before" photos..



He still looks a little under too me, but not 250lbs worth... what say y'all? Ha!

Thanks!

His weight looks fine, he looks like he need muscle though.

He looks to be a fine weight. He could use some more muscle, but that will come with riding time. I, personally, would rather see a horse thin than too fat. It's easier on the horse in the summer to be a little on the svelt side. Fat horses sweat a lot more than fit or thin ones .

I agree with the above...he may not be muscled, but he's not underfed.

I know what you're talking about, thinking he might be underweight. My horse lives in my front yard and I see him often also. He looks skinnier at certain angles than others. Also, he has very pointy hip bones! This also makes him look a little skinnier than what he is. He's the one in my picture to the left <----

Okay thanks guys! He's been on a new feeding schedule for a month now so I'm glad he's gained his weight back. A lot of te problem was he was in pasture getting beat up and not getting enough food. And yes, he's under muscled, I have only been riding or lunging him once a week cause my schedule sucks with work! Getting a new job and moving him closer to me should help get him (and I!) back in shape!!
