    He looks more conditioned now bee of his weight but none of it really looks like muscle. Muscle has a different buldge about it. His back isn't looking to flash, do heaps of stretching down then bringing him back up then down etc.

    Absolutely right. You can put all the weight you want on a horse and it can still have a bad topline. The overall conformation of a horse will also determine just how good the topline will ever be. Without changing fat to solid muscle a topline will never really improve and if the basic conformation has flaws the best you can do are minor improvements.

    Higher haunches especially with a steep haunch to wither angle/drop can only be improved upon just so far.

    Jeddah, yes his topline isn't finished building yet....so of course his back doesn't "look to flash" because we still has a way to go on building it back up.

    Spyder, please note he was not 100% on equal ground nor was he squared up the best. He wanted nothing to do with the camera and just wanted the left over treats that were in my pocket (too bad for him, I didn't have any...but he thought I did ), normally he's uphill when on flat ground.
