I think he looks very well balance, not skinny but not fat
He looks great :)

I thought he looked better when you got him. He looks more muscled now but his rump looks sunkin in and his spine looks like it could use some more cushion

I agree that he is a long way from "skinny" but he doesn't quite have the muscle mass that I would like to see in a horse that is obviously in a decent amount of work. He doesn't need more fat but a bit of added protein might help him to build some muscle up.

For my liking he's lacking condition, he has no topline and his bum needs some muscle and condition!

But I am used to my paint boy who's got huge natural muscle tone.. I have had people telling me my own horse is over weight -.-
