I think he looks pretty good, just needs muscling up and he'll be perfect.

Look again, they tied in a snap to make it a quick release/no tie halter. Kind of defeats the purpose of having no hardware that can break, but people do strange things.

teresa, he looks SUPER!! I am os glad you can get out regularly to care for him. I saw your post about a riding buddy...do you have a trailer?

I live about 2 hours south of you, and we could meet somewhere.

I shall add regarding the halter. It is too low and if he were startled and flew ahead it could cause a fracture. Try to keep the knot of the cheekpiece about two fingers below the jawbone, like a regular halter. I'm curious, what is the age of this horse?

Yup, did notice that.... & ignored it! I agree also with fitting the halter a lot higher too.
