Conditioning.. what do you think?

I've decided to share the progress that my horse has made over the last almost 3 years, weight wise. He's a coming 12 year old Standardbred gelding. Let me know what you think! Sorry that some of the pictures are so dark and are crappy quality.

Thank you, he definitely has a loving home, considering I was the last resort. If I didn't take him, it was off to the meat truck for him. He's a beautiful boy and he eats about as much as a draft horse.. Gotta love Standardbreds and their crazy metabolisms.
