Differense - good or bad?

I might not get the answers I want, but I'll ask anyway. And yes, I know it's difficult to judge from a summer coat picture and one with a sweaty wintercoat, but I've tried to make them as similiar in pose as possible, at least :)

Please feel free to give some critique about his shape altogether as well. You who don't know already may guess his breed, just for fun :P As if it's not obvious what he is.. xD

Last summer:



Today:

I agree, he looks better now and will look much better when he sheds out. Before he looked fat, now he is looks like he has a good weight.

Hm.. I see what you mean, but that horse has never been fat actually.. I've always had trouble keeping his weight! The first summer I had him, he lost too much weight, he looked awful.. :/ And that was on a 24hours turnout on several acres with grass.. x_X; I've learnt to keep his weight good now tho, I think and hope.

Could the belly be a lack of abdomen muscles to keep it up or something, you think? (first picture)

I hope he'll look better later on :P Or else I'll have to reconcider how I ride. X)

Throwing in a picture from when I bought him 2 years ago (tho it's the wrong angle to see much..):


And how he looked that first horrible summer, before I figured what to give him to get his weight back...I tried everything.. x__x I think he had started gaining some at that picture, actually..
