How am I doing?

So I've been working with Herbie for not even a year now and he came with pretty much no muscle and pretty underweight. Since the last photo was taen he has been worked five days a week and given 8 quarts of food daily (recently he has gone down to 4 quarts). These picture was taken like 6 months ago (not when we first got him).

and these were taken today. Sorry about the poor lighting/quality, they had to be taken inside his stall because of the thunder storm outside.

I'm pretty happy with the results, but I want to see if anyone other than me can tell. I know he still needs work and we are still trying to build him up, but how am a doing so far?

I've been riding him a lot and we fed him, but that about it. I'm pretty sure he was in the field for a while before we bought him...

WAYYY BETTER!!!! I agree with Sonny, that he needs some more muscle on his hindquarters ( a lot of troting sometimes helps with this ) But other than that he look a lot better and a lot healthier!!!! good job!

He looks a lot better. His hindquarters could use a little more muscle, collected and extended trotting and cantering really help with building up muscle.

He looks way better and a whole lot healthier. His coat also looks amazing, nice and shiny.

I love Lad and Heidi! <3
