He looks just a tad on the skinny side, I would up his hay going into winter. He isn't ribby, but he doesn't have much in the way of topline...maybe I am just used to the big round wb look, but I vote more hay and maybe a fat supplement like ricebran to make him round and shiny.
I might have missed an earlier post...has he been dewormed recently?
You mentioned switching farriers, too short of a trim could account for him not wanting to go forward (if he was moving gingerly and not moving out)...you said he is going better now, is it further away from his last trim or was he recently done?
Let us know what the vet says!
Best of luck!
