Well, she's 18. My other horse is 20 months, maybe that's where the 20 came from, lol. I see what you're seeing. We've been working on getting more butt muscle since the first picture and are actually beginning to USE our butt when we ride, and so far it's been coming along GREAT. Hence the slightly better butt in the second picture. I love her butt. =P And thanks so much for saying that, it means a lot. All the vets and farriers that have seen her ask how old she is and when I tell them, they all take a step back, eyeball her, and say, "Really?" Haha. =D

Clearly this is a situation where a young, immature girl owns a horse she loves and sees as perfect and nothing less. She should know better than to post in this section...and say "we can take it" when she cant.

Yes, the horse is obese...however it could be partially due to her being half welsh cob. However, she does look very unhealthy and I would heed some of this advice if I were her instead of "lmfao" at it...

Oh. I bought her at 15, and she had been sitting around 5 years prior to that. Whoops! =]
