Awww thanks

I'm still working on getting the top of the neck to be flat....you know how on most horses it kinda curves up due to improper collection? At least that's what I've been told causes it...well it has flattened out some, but still needs more work

And I want more muscles on his hind-quarters....sadly with all the work the BO is doing on her house I can't trot up the huge hill anymore or at least until they are done
Any way that I can get better hind-muscles just doing arena work?

you really think he has a hay belly? The outline of his rib cage is visible on the belly so I don't know if that's normal or not
At the moment he gets 1 bale a day due to he has no grass in his pasture, once I clean out the other pasture he'll have grass and some buddies...so he won't need all that hay.

He's always had a shiny coat...even when I first bought him...I was quite surpirsed...and he's really not getting any supplements for his coat at all.

Hehe I'm glad you love him so much, farmpony hehe. :)

He has a hay belly but really, he looks awesome. You have done so much in such a short time, the hay belly will go as you continue to muscle him up, which you've done an amazing job on. His neck and butt have improved... You are doing great with him!

Can I have him?
