Truthfully, just judging by those pictures, I would say that your friend's horse is on the verge of being pretty darn overweight.
Exactly.

Your horse looks perfect. Don't worry :)

I think your horse looks perfect. You're actually suppose to feel the ribs but not see them. My guy is very tall and very narrow (thoroughbred body). I can still feel my horses ribs but not quite see them anymore. He's always been ribby though because of his build though.

Manasquan, probably best to PM about that... especially if you didn't want people to know that was you & your horse pictured!
