Thanks! Akhal tekes are normally on the thin side. The colt is currently growing up like a weed and not filling not. Trust me, his breeder is shoveling grain into him like there is no tomorrow! They tend to go through a very awkward stage when they are growing. The mare meanwhile has major muscle atrophy alone her topline. I can't remember why but I know he rescued the mare from a different breeding farm in Texas years ago.
