Condition critique?

He has been off for a few months, but what do you think about his weight, muscling, and overall condition. What can I improve on?

Here is the progression oldest to newest:









Current:


Standing funny...


Again, no idea what's up with his back legs here...

I dont think hes chubby just needs a little more muscle. Especially the front end. I would do lots of trotting preferrably up and down hill if possible

It's actually not possible at the moment, but I will when he goes back into work. He's been off for a while due to lymes and we are just starting to get him back into work, which he hasn't been too happy about.

I'll start doing that when he is a little less crazy undersaddle.

I think he looks good, I dotn think hes chubby.

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

I don't really think he looks chubby, maybe for a TB.

Here are some field shots, they it might help to see him at a different angle:

Compared to what he looked like before...(way too 'underconditioned') I think all he needs is a bit of work to turn some of that flab to muscle and he will look fantastic.

If you can feel his ribs fairly easily, he is not at all too fat...;)

I think he looks good actually. But I prefer them being a bit over then under. And once he is being worked, I assume it'll even out and he'll look just perfect.
