If you were going to purchase a horse and were presented these two pictures as two different horses, which one would you pick? I would definitely pick the chubbier one. I don't think she looks as healthy in the current picture.
All of you who like them on the thinner side......which one would you pick? Do you think ribs suggest ill health, at least along with a long dull coat?
I don't know. I like a little flesh on them. But that's just me. I don't want people to think I am neglecting them. Heck, I don't want to think I am neglecting them.
Edited to say......I am not suggesting the horse in question is neglected. She looks good in both photos! I am just pointing out how other people may see a ribby horse. How I may see a ribby horse I am not familiar with.
