To me, he doesn't look very thin except for the third photo. I looked over the post again to see if that picture was taken at a different time, because he looks very thin there. Maybe he just needs some development over the topline.

He has a sway back a little bit, to me or my vet he doesn't look bad. He's in walk trot work right now so, that should become better in a couple of weeks.

he looks like he needs more muscle than any thing else. Also more protien.

Here is a good read.

i think this guy will look much better after he's packed on some pounds. even with trot work - he can't add muscle unless he's getting the necessary nutrients from his feed to turn into muscle. what is he being fed now and how long have you had him?

he's being fed... 2 1/2 scoops of grain in the morning and 4 flakes of hay... morning, night and afternoon... except for afternoon he gets 1 flake because he normally has hay left over from morning feed.

i've had him for awhile... he just came back out of a full board place who treated him like crap.... like i said previously he looks like absolute crap in pictures, in person he's really not as bad as the pictures make him seem
