And to say "well cared for drafts have more weight" implies that Indyhorse is not caring for her colt properly. That is what irritated me- the implication of neglect.
The Iowa state fair is the largest fair in the US and is comprised of mainly draft horses. We also have 2 of the largest draft horse sales in the country in Waverly that people come from all over the world to buy horses taht I attend regularly. No implying neglect on my part just thought it looked under weight escpecially compared to the horse in the avatar. I didn't know I needed to post my experience to give my opinion.

Haha, the horse on my avatar has been on a diet for a year, and still is far too chubby - like I said, I generally spend more time battling pudge than thinness!

I do appreciate your concern, and as I mentioned, I DO believe your comments stemmed out of concern. Thank you.

I know nothing about drafts, and I really am too tired to do any sort of critique or evaluation, but I have to say he's gorgeous.
