How does his weight look? Hooves?

So I finally got some good pictures of Junior to show his weight and his hooves. Both have been a work in progress and are still a trial and error sort of scenario.

I have included before and current pictures.

When I first got him, 1 1/2 years ago: (note the huge quarter crack in his rear left)




Today:

^^Front Right

^^Front Left
Now I know his back feet are chipped, I just pulled his back shoes and he has notoriously bad feet. Working on it. They just need to be re-filed again. Haven't had a chance.

^^Rear right

^^Rear left, notice no quarter crack

Now for the weight.

From September:



From Today:

He is definitely lacking topline. He is 23 years old so tends to drop muscle in an instant if you aren't working him. Due to weather and not having an indoor arena he only gets ridden like once a week if that.

But I am putting him back into work starting on Monday since I now have access to an indoor arena so hopefully his muscle will build back up soon

His fronts are more than ready for a reset. Clinches are way popped. Looks to have some flaring. HArd to tell much without proper shots from all angles tho.

Weight looks fine for a horse of his age. I see the same issue with topline but that is common for older horses.

How do his hooves look as compared to a year and a half ago? Better? Worse?

Hi, weight looks ok, he's just lacking topline muscle. Hooves are all a bit overdue looking and flared all round. Hoof pics only show quarter flares with that angle but other shots look like toes are a bit long/stretched too. I'd be partic from the ground surface relieving walls - but id also consider diet-nutrition on that not too. Id also be inclined to avoid shoeing at least until I got his feet health.ular about better hoof balance and treating mechanics that are perpetuating the flares - ie
