what do you think now? does he look better?

Well I upped his food on Thursday and gave him alot today and here's what he looks like so far...ribs are still a tiny bit visible but not to the extent as what he was before (at least I don't think so)





What's ya think?

The old pictures must have been funky... I don't know how he would put on weight that quickly. Maybe it was just the lighting/fur thing??? dunno. He looks good to me tho. :)

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I think he looks alot better, but make sure you don't OVER feed him.

well before I got him he was used to free-choice hay so I doubt i'm going to overfeed him...he hasn't been getting too much...and he doesn't eat all of his hay...he actually leaves some, but it's just there for him to munch on.

I think mainly it's his fur...some days he looks rubby...others he looks fat as my 22 pound cat (haha yeah she's huge)...I don't think his weight can move that much.

Here's a picture from this morning

That's good. I was just making sure because we rescued a dog and we were over feeding him and then he wouldn't eat at all!

It usually takes a while for horses to gain weight, but he's looking really good so far. Also, yeah, it could be his fur that makes it look funky. Good luck with him and I hope he continues to gain weight!

awwww thankies. And can you believe that I ddn't like him when I saw his ad?

I think part of the ribbyness if due to his coat...and part of his weight...I don't think it's all his weight or all his coat

Oh trust me...weird enough he'd rather spend most of his time staring at his girlfriend then eating...he always has hehe

I think he looks great, but I didn't think he looked that bad before.
