Yes, the chestnut looks very skinny and needs more weight, specially for winter.

Yes, the horse needs more food. Especially with winter coming up!

Hard to tell with the black, but the sorrel is thin, both look unthrifty.

I agree she's thin, neither of them have much to spare really. Judging by the pics. They seem to have very lil muscle too. What are you feeding daily and how?

I agree, the sorrel is thin. Ideally, you shouldn't be able to see the ribs at all. She doesn't yet look like she's starving, but she definitely needs either more food or something higher in fat than what she's getting.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
