    The funny thing is....where he had the fungus on the back of his bum and back legs the hair is finally growing back...pitch black. So he looks like he has black stripes down the back of his back legs lol. So happy I'm not showing this year lol.

    I see a horse that has trimmed down. He is in no way shape or form thin or even close to it. I can see where he has dropped the fat from his neck, belly, and butt. Now he just needs more work to build up the muscle to take it's place. Now, he looks like the type of horse you could expect a full day's work from. Before, he would have been one horse in a string of 3 for the day.

    Depending on where you are locate you might look into a ration balancer and you could elminate everything else. As in one thing only no sweet feed no other supplements excpet joint stuff..

    I think he looks great! You've done a good job with him. I can see he's lost some fat on his neck especially. Good looking boy!

    To me it just looks like he lost his topline.

    MF his topline does look a bit weak which is where a ration blanacer will come into play with quality amino acids(protiens)

    And of course she needs to work on getting him to round his back and using his butt when working him

    Yeah, that's in the works actually. He was a pasture pet his whole life (7 years) until I got him two months ago...so I really don't expect he really had a topline, just a fatty back. I had to start him from the ground up as he had very little training when he was 2 and that was it...so we are getting there. He's a good boy, very willing to please.
