Would be interesting to know how much of what he is eating. I beg to differ, loosie , IMHO he could still use a bit more flesh....not fat.....he still got the tucked up racing underline. His muscles all went, especially over the croup and back.
From what iveseen with the Standies, it doesn't take much more than good hay to get them to fill out. I've seen many many once out of training, become really nice warmblood type horses, good topline and well muscled with free choice hay and 24/7 turnout.
And, I've yet to see one with IR, laminitic or foundered. Which is quite amazing when you take into consideration how and what they are being fed when in work.....
Not saying it wouldn't happen, just that I haven't seen it in 8 years with about 120 horses at any given time.
I agree with the saddle tho.....not the best choice...maybe because it looks still brand new?
