Skinny horse

I dont know if the attachment worked or not but this is the skinniest horse ive ever seen for sale in my area.Its pretty bad.I dont know if this is a boarding stable or a private owner but wow!I almost want to go buy this poor guy myself.If this doesnt belong here sorry. I didnt know where else to put it.Also they say "no studdish behavior" which you can see from the pic hes acting studdish.

Is this an ad posted somewhere? Do you have a link to the ad? What is your connection to the horse?

He is deff not the skinniest horse I have ever seen and to be honest the thin look he has may be becasue of his breed. No dought he deff is on the thin side but looks like an arab stud to me and LOOKS CRAZED! deff studdy! look how tight that lead is and how fixxed he is on whatever is in that stall.

But now that I look at the picture he does not have a arab head?!?! What breed does it say he is?

HE IS WAY TOO SKINNY! by looking at that one hind body shot you can def tell. But in the one you posted he looks like a arab stud. I can not believe they would post that add! They crazy! I LOVE the barn though :)

I fear this is another classic example of bad horse selling techniques... obviously the seller isn't really interested in selling the horse if they can't be bothered to get decent pictures and write at least a proper description for him.

He looks skinny, but he is allegedly 3 years old as well... so he *could* be in a growth spurt that's robbed him of some added weight.
