Speed of weight gain

Hi there!
Ok so my question to all you lovely folk is what is a good rate for a horse to regain weight.
When we picked my gelding up from his previous neglectful owners he looked like this
This is 4 weeks later
Images are a little grainy but you get the basic idea
Anyways I'm aware he still has a while to go but I guess I'm just wondering whether the progress he's made in that time frame is good? Or otherwise comments ?

He looks good. I've fattened a few skinnies in my time and they all gained a little different. Most of them that last 100 lbs seems to take forever. When they are that skinny they have lost a lot of muscle mass. Pretty much the body starts consuming itself in an attempt to stay alive.

Whatever you are doing it's working.

Good to get reassurance he's on track!! :):)
It's hard to tell when I see him daily I forget how bad he was to start with!!!
