    Weight Critique

    Another thread got me to thinking about my horses weight. I would like your opinions on where they are, and where they should be. Now, I know muscling is needed, but at this point in time cannot be attained. Please give me your honest opinions on them. Be as harsh as you want/need to be. Thanks. I know they arent great, but these are the best pictures I have at the moment.

    From what I can see in these pictures, Kita needs more weight. Bo looks pretty good and Queen could use a little more weight.

    I think Bo's weight is good. Kita needs a little more weight and Queen needs just a little. Queen is just a little ribby but not bad at all and Kita is a little ribbier than Queen.

    Thank you both for your opinions. I do appreciate it.

    Kita could use some weight, bo looks great, queen could use a little weight. Same as the rest of them but the more people that agree the more comforting.

    I wasnt sure if they were to ribby or not. We are working on getting weight on Kita and Queen, but it seems to be taking forever. I seem to be impatient. They are fed free hay and grass, and Strategy. I was reading the thread about OTT not gaining weight, and I think I might have Cool Calories or something to that affect added to the girls' food. Bo gets fat looking at food, kinda like me. :)

    I can eat and eat and eat and never get fat, hahaha.

    I'm going to regret saying that one day :P

    I used to be that way, then I hit the 30's and kids....i can't keep the weight off now. Of course grazing all day doesnt help me. But you would think I chase after the kids enough to counter balance that. Nope. Oh well. Thanks everyone.

    I think your grey horse looks good, but your two sorrel horses need some weight. Not a lot, just enough to get rid of that ribby appearance.

    Have you ever tried Triple Crown Senior? It does wonders.
