He isnt very bulky but part of that is my fault. I'm trying to put some weight on him becuase I don't want him too thin but I want to keep him a bit leaner becuase of his feet... if that makes sense. I don't think a huge horse on those little feet would end good
. I'd rather long and lean and big and bulky.
Perhaps I should aim for Trail or Western Riding/ classes where riding skills are judged more-so than the horse by itself.
Of course I love him no matter what and I know about the odds of him having trouble with his feet later in life (I hope much, much, later). But he is here already so some one might as well feed him... which is part of the reason I bought him back.
For those of you not familiar with his story I sold him for $100.00 and bought him back for $3000.00. I had to get him back, he was too good to let slip through the cracks... I know how so many young unfinished/green horses end up getting passed around... so I bought him back and now he sits in my back yard... I would rather board him at a large place with an indoor for the winter (but its cheaper to keep him at home of course) so for now he gets to be a horse again, he gets 24.7 turnout with a shed and grass. (he was at a 'show barn' where he was kept in a 12x12 stall and never turned out). He seems happy anyway!
