    look at him now

    I am so happy and I hope you agree. In just 1 week of lots of TLC do you think my Diamond looks better? I know he still needs 2 gain more weight but I love how he is doing.

    Yes he is looking much better. Still has a little ways to go, but much better than the first photo.

    What have you changed?

    I go and see him everyday 2 make sure he has a lot to eat in his stall with fresh water, also I walk him outside the pasture on a lead rope so I can see him getting awesome spring grass ,clover and Dandalions. I will get him wormed next week .

    He's looking great! Although, I'd try to not give him any clover. Some types can make them drool and other nasty stuff, so just try to avoid it. Good work!

    Of course I'm only going off one not very good pic(need some different angles) but I don't know about the 'needs more' he doesn't look underweight to me in this pic. He is of course lacking muscle & his hind quarters look a bit funny, perhaps giving the appearance of being lighter than he is.

    As a guide, horses (as with people) are healthier if on the light side, rather than overweight. You need to look at the entire horse, not just topline or ribs or such, to get a good idea. Different beasts carry weight differently. Ribs should be 'covered' & not easily visible but easily felt...

    Oh just have to comment on a common mistake with rope halters... tie it around the loop from throat/cheek, not above it. That way it can't pull loose or get tight & jammed
