Let's Just Say He's "Big-Boned"...

Okay, that's a lie, Jasper's fat. But I mean that in the most loving way! Haha. He had winter of eating and being ridden by little kids while I was busy with a sick horse and school. I can't wait to get him back into shape! Anyone else's horse gain some winter weight?

He's a cutie. We have the opposite problem, the Thoroughbreds both lost a bit over the summer!

I had a mare that I couldn't weight on no matter how hard I tried :/ Sometimes I think getting them to gain weight is more difficult than helping them lose it

Jasper would rather stand in 3 feet of snow and eat than be warm in the shelter haha

My TB loses weight in the winter and gains it all back in the summer

He's cute fat, though, you have to admit.

We're working on a weight loss plan for my rescue guy.

The before pic is when we got him in January, the 'in progress' pics are from today.

We still have quite a way to go...I know. :)

He's looking good! You can see the muscles in his chest now and his back is starting to come up. He has such a cute face, I love the little dip.

my horse has gotten a hay belly on her. She had lost a lot of weight due to poor hay( I will admitt it wasn't the best but at the time I thought it was good hay untill the vet checked it out and told me it was too mature)...anways,she is well rounded now. I need to work her more to bring her belly up.
