Haha he is chunky! Gorgeous horse tho. Funny, when in English he looks like a TB, but in Western, I wouldn't guess ;)

He is no doubt a gorgeous boy, but the round bales do his belly no justice.

When I purchased him last fall he'd just came out of training for dressage/jumping. The "nice" pictures were from spring of 2010. I purchased him to breed to our mares and to use as a trail horse however life has kept me from using him at all until this month. Hence the weight :)

KawaiiCharlie Summit does not feel so bad now knowing that he is not alone in this. (Actually, the jerk doesn't feel bad at all! He is rather "fat and happy" I however think its time for a tummy tuck)

The OPPS happened here... My broodmares needed to go from this (when I bought them last year)

To this, taken last week:

And tubby here lives with them so he enjoyed the year of round bale. Unfortunately, the weight is really only in his belly. His ribs can easily be felt he just appears to be expecting next April as well :)

haha i bet the owners of the thoroughbreds at my barn would be glad if there horses got that tubby. we have trouble keeping weight ON our thoroughbreds. sadly i dont have the same problem with my paint lol we do lots of work to keep his belly down lol i think lots and lots and lots of trotting is in need for your boy lol (thats what my boy and i did today). but still he is absolutly stunning. as are your mares

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

Being overweight is just as unhealthful on an animal as underweight. North Americans think it's okay though because we are a nation of unhealthful overweights.

I'm sorry, but this is simply not true. As I'm sure we're all well aware, all generalizations are false, and this one is no different. Yes, it is true that the United States has an alarming number of obese citizens, but that doesn't make us "a nation of unhealthful overweights". And regardless, I know plenty of people who are overweight themselves, yet are very conscious that their animals stay fit. Allowing oneself to become obese is, in most cases, a personal lifestyle choice, and I'd be willing to bet that the majority of people who do so are well aware of the negative effects on their wellbeing. Deciding not to care, and thinking it's okay, are two very different things. Just sayin. /endrant.

And OP, he's gorgeous. Haha! At least he's not gonna cost you a bajillion dollars trying to keep weight on him :P
