Hows his neck looking?

How are his neck muscles? when I got them everything was hard as a rock at the bottom line of his neck, no real muscle from the top.

Just looking for improvement dont be tooharsh cuz i know its not his final touch!! lol I dont think that dip near his withers will ever really improve but i also dont think he is ewed neck like some ppl said when i first introduced him..
still ribby but he has put on a lot of muscle and weight were he was lacking

sorry these are cell photos and he kept trying to come close to me.



Just want to make sure I'm working him in the right direction

ah maybe some day he'll have a neck like his buddy Pete

Yep, it is possible. It will just take some time to build it up to where it needs to be. You have gotten amazing results already so just keep doing what you are doing.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
