    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)

    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. :)

    I don't know how either...but he did look alot better.
    His coat seemed to be the same...but then again I did give him alot more grain the past some days but not double or anything

    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.
