topline critique

Please note: I could not get a full body picture because I was in the stall...and it was pouring outside so I couldn't bring my camera out there
So, I'm sorry that it's not the best of pictures

First pictre = Before
Second picture = Back (after)
Third picture = neck (after)

It is rather hard to critique, we could do with a picture of the whole of your horse, alot like the first one. I must say he certainly is a handsome fella though.

Meggymoo is right, it is hard to critique without a full pic of the after, but he is very beautiful. I love a good looking bay horse.

Yeah sorry about the bad pictures...the day that it wasn't raining I forgot my camera so I couldn't take the pictures.
I wasn't sure if some of you could tell from them. To me, it does look alot better, but that's just me

To me it actually looks quite under developped. What do you do with him?

To be honest, and not to be harsh, but he looks fatter noww, and his coat looks heealthier, he looks a tad muslier on his shoulders, but his top line doesn't look a whole lot different

On which picture? The one with the blue lead and the nylon halter was taken like ages ago at the old stables.
I'll have to get a recent confo shot because I know his neck has built up some...and his back somewhat. He has high withers so that kinda throws off his topline in a bit

Oh, yeah he's fatter now because he's fed better. The last stables hardly fed him (note in the last picture I posted he was on 10 lbs of grain if not more...never weighted it...and he got it every day with beet pulp and rice bran). Now he's on just hay and got a hay belly because I don't ride him as often as I used to due to weather. But hey, winter is coming...last time he lost soooo much weight over the winter so I want to be prepared.

Here's another picture that is more level and has both part of his back and neck...not sure if it helps
