weight???

howdy everyone!

here is my baby gurl sasha ( es paradis ), she has

Always done very well at shows but over the last couple of months

She has put on a bit of weight, I don't want this to effect her

Success at shows. My fellow horsey mates say that she looks fine

But I wanted some more opinions on the matter!

Thanx people x x x Sophie x

She looks good and healthy to me. Remember, a haflinger is considered a small "heavy" breed, she should look stocky.
She's beautiful!

She looks fine to me!! And like BeautifulBay said she's meant to be stocky!
And even if she is a bit overweight.......it's always better to have a horse slightly overweight than underweight!!!!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

She's very pretty. I agree with Crackrider, she looks just right to me. Very healthy and not overweight at all.
You should see some of the horses on our yard, now they would be classed as porkies!!!
