Yes, you are right, thin stallions can have cresty necks.
And you're horse is not pleasantly plump like "other peoples" (which by the way you shouldnt care about other people, do what is right for your horse, which is get her much thinner) she is obese! Huge! Way over the safety limit you set for people. You need to set for these for your horse too btw, cause carrying that around is much more uncomfortable than lugging a fat man around a couple times for an hour. Don't be a hypocrite.

I'm sorry but I used to own a morgan and one of my good friends is a morgan breeder and um....I know morgans do not have necks that look like THAT or have a belly like THAT. I also have never seen a welsh like that.

I don't mean to be mean because you are obviously a very sweet person but I think you are in denial. The last person I knew in denial about her horses weight was my cousin...and her horse died at age 10. I would really get the vet to run those tests and/or get a second opinion.

And, not to be rude, but um....what do you do that you have 6 hours a day 5 days a week to ride, I wish I had that much time :)

Very well said.

OP you are very quick to judge people but you just can't take what you dish out. Please do your mare a favor and don't make exscuses for her and get that fat off of her.

I would also get a Cushings test. Check out the Body Condition Score chart, go out and feel your horse. You want her at about a 4-5 for optimum health. Morgans are prone to issues like Cushings/IR and ponies are known for it too, so you need to be extra careful with her.

How to Condition Score Horses - by Susan Evans Garlinghouse
Henneke Body Scoring - Habitat for Horses - Equine Protection Organization - Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Horse Education and Adoptions

Otherwise she looks really cute, nothing majorly wrong. She has a sweet expression (when she isn't glaring at the other horse ).

Guys this is a critique thread. If you want to bash her for her opinions on overweight people why don't you go to that thread and flame her. There's no need to bring that into this thread and you aren't helping the horse any by making her get defensive.

Dont ask for a critique if all you want to here is "wow your mare is perfect" because there is not perfect horse sorry news flash! Now get your head out of your sky and come back and at least pretend like you care about your horse.
