    He's already looking better good job. Think the name kiko would fit him quite well.

    Good job! Yeah, I wouldn't think he's too thin to ride(of course barring heavy exercise), but being thin & lacking topline muscle, I'd probably forego a saddle until his condition is good.... sure bareback would be ouchie with that spine tho, so a bareback pad/surcingle around a western pad would do the trick.

    I wonder, what are the 'dietary aid, weighbuilder etc & why does he get them only once daily? Generally it's best to give whatever ration over a couple or more meals daily, esp if it's related to weightgain/condition.

    I'm not exactly sure what they are. My mom is mostly in charge of monitoring his feedings. She has this whole chart thing that she follows. I do know that she and the vet worked it all out and she's following his instructions though so I would assume that whatever it is she's giving him is good.

    You raise a good point though about giving the aids more frequently. I'll ask her if there's a reason she only gives them once a day.

    I see progress already-good job! Sounds like he will be a good horse for your family. I had a cat named Kiko many years ago. Do you like the name Scout?

    I like that name :) I'll pass it along for suggestion.

    He's a nice-looking horse. Namewise he looks like a Caspian to me.... but Leo suits him as well.

    Leo or Scout is what I prefer for him!

    Funny the way names have different meaning for different people. Scout is a tacky name for me & Leo is no good unless the horse is a palomino, Caspian only for a white or dapple horse... But don't ask me for suggestions - picking names for my kids & animals were among some of the hardest decisions I've ever made!

    More pictures. He's been with us for two weeks now. He looks a little scruffier but that's just because his winter coat is starting to come in. Sorry the pictures aren't good quality. I had to take them with my phone and we all know how well non-smart phones take pictures.

    Oh, and his name is officially Nick. Not sure what I think about it. Sometimes he strikes me as a Nick and sometimes not so much. We'll see if he grows into it.

    He still looks thin, but I promise he looks less ribby when you see him in person. He is an attention hog. He loves being groomed and pampered :p
