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

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.

No I told you he was 1016. That quite a BIG difference.

I told you when they were up, if you had told me when I posted them I would have taken them down

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