Progress(its taken alot of courge to put this ohk guys, he was bad, but it just happened, due to what I am pretty sure was a gut imbalance and maybe worms, he has been bomb drenched and is on probiotics now, also winter didnt help, and losing my grazing) in real life at all these times he looks better and worse in certian angles. Try not to kill m, I was up late worriing most nights, and I was really trying. But its finnally working =]
Start(this was him =[ , it killed me to see him like this)

I know exactly how you feel. There is a horse at my barn whom I take care of. He's about 40 years old and like skin and bones. All the time people say he is mistreated but they don't seem to understand that we are feeding him and trying to fatten him up but he's OLD.

He looks much better, his top line is more lined up.

You have done a great job getting him back to a decent weight. Those probiotics are surely making his coat look gorgeous!

He looks way better - I love the fact that you stressed over this as it shows that you really care how he looked/felt....

Keep up the great work...

Honestly I've seen horses out that have less weight on that your first pic out at comps....

Well done

Your horse looks ok to me - I've seen a lot worse - and at least you are doing all you can and yours being underweight was an unforeseen set of circumstances.

Just to put things in perspective look at this pic. This poor boy worked for 10 years in a circus and when at the age of 18 ( not old ) he could no longer perform due to the arthritis in his legs caused by going round in endless circles he was abandoned at my place. He was supposedly one of their favorite horses but they didnt even check my place out or visit him - I never even got a single phone call to ask how he was doing.
