How's their weight?

I have two Thoroughbreds, I bought both of them when they were underweight and would like to see if you guys think they've gained a good amount so far. I bought Molly, the bay 7-yr old, in April, and Excel, the 5-yr old chestnut gelding, in July. I know the pictures are bad, but critique what you can :)

Molly, July 14, 2010: We bought her in April, sent her to a trainer until July 14.

Excel, September:

You're a great person for buying them while not completely sure what they were going to turn out like!
They're weight has definitely improved! I mean obviously you've still got a bit of ways to go until their ribs aren't showing and their flank/hip areas are filled in, but they look happy! :)

Excel has improved greatly :) I think he still may have a bit more to go though.
Molly looks great as well.
I always ask but what do you feed them?
Having a tb as well its always good to hear others people diets

Thanks guys!

I feed them each 12 lbs of Nutrena Prime per day, split into two days. I add corn oil to their diets as well and they're on great alfalfa hay right now

Their bodies look really good. But those feet bother me. The toe is about an inch too long on both of them. I hope they just hadn't been shod recently?

^^They're both shod regularly on a schedule. Molly's feet weren't too good when we got her, but they look fine now. Excel has really weak feet and wears 4 shoes with clips, and pads on the front. He recently abcessed as well....those feet are just an ongoing battle! After we bought him he lost 2 or 3 shoes at different times from clipping his feet, so I put bell boots on him in the pasture and we put the shoes with clips on. We had to take the back shoe off because of his abcess, but the farrier's coming this weekend to put it back on as he's completely sound again.

Great job and great feeding program for TB's - Finally someone who understands :)

Excel could use a bit more time and some riding but he's looking much better.
