Haha twins indeed! He was similar when I first bought him in early 2011 - the lady who trucked him to his new home was like "Ummm...are you sure that's not a pregnant mare?" when she first saw him in the field. His anatomy proved otherwise, thankfully, and he trimmed up in no time after I took him out of the paddock but, well, here he is again! Difficult to ride with, it moves from side to side and kills my hips lol.
I think curing his ulcers would definitely helped Drif keep weight on, and the stifle injury has probably helped too as I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be doing much running around on it! He's a handsome boy even with the belly and no topline, but horses seem to trim up and build muscle so much easier than people so I'm sure he won't take long to get back into shape once he's over his injury!
Brock is too lazy to run around anyway lol, believe it or not this is him on a diet
, when he's on full feed he develops layers of fat on his back, neck and ribs that jiggle when you poke them...
