I'm the one you're referring to trying to get a ex-broodmare in shape. Your girl looks a lot better off than my mare. She doesn't have a belly or anything, just needs some muscle. Mine still has her last filly with her (we don't have the space to completely wean her right now - Daisy is naturally weaning her, not my choice, but it works...) so that's not helping her gain weight.
But, I agree - lots of ground work for these girls! We'll be lunging, trail walking and long lining all winter long.
