Lotsa Ronan pics here!

Alright - so since my thread a couple months ago (mid-February?) about Ronan's weight and how to improve that, he's been on a round bale and getting grain twice daily. Grain consists of beet pulp, Step 2, flax, and a vitamin/mineral supplement that was recommended by a nutritionist. We have been working a LOT on long-and-low, and getting him to use his hind end properly, including a ton of collected/extended trot, transitions, trot poles (some raised) and conditioning. He's generally worked 5 days a week, and jumps one of those days, up to 3'3" ish. I'm still not thrilled with his weight/muscling/body shape, but I can't quite put my finger on why. His belly hair could be creating a bit of an optical illusion as well. He's hanging on to his winter coat as if his life depends on it even though we've gotten decent weather recently (as I'm typing this though the weather network is predicting snow and cold temps tonight, so I'm going to go put a heavier blanket on him today.)
I see him 5 days a week, and so I'd really appreciate input from fresh, un-jaded eyes with no emotional attachment.

Otherwise, here are some pics to enjoy: (and yes, my horse gallops stupidly.)

I think he looks awful..... so I shall trade you for one really out-of-shape, fat, spooky, tantrum throwing lil Morgan.

He comes with a stepladder to get up there right?

Next time you turn him out and does that, get video to amuse us, ok?

Are you still feeling that sense of , what shall I say, "ennui" with him?
