    LOL, MH, he's no longer quite so sexy. He didn't get much work over the winter so he's pretty...um...fluffy now.

    Maybe we can move it around like humans do. You know take some from the belly and put it over the hips or other desired areas lol.

    I wish, OH and they really should be working on a fat transplant scheme, I would willingly go to the fat bank and sell or donate a few pounds a couple of times a year

    Well, then he'd fit right in with the rest of the resident air ferns.


    I guess I will post an example. Though he might be rather embarrassed that I shared his "prego" look.

    Here's Woodstock after a year & half out of work after tendon injury. This was first time being saddled after. I sang to him "fat horse, little saddle." I'm pretty sure he was trying to outfat Lacey, who is very, very prego.

    Here's both of us looking fat (quitting smoking = gaining major poundage)

    Here's what he looks like when he's worked on a regular basis

    Hey, they do that! Seriously. There's a plastic surgeon a couple hours from me that does fat injections from donors. I've been trying to convince my sister that I'll gladly donate some of my butt so she can have boobs!

    :) I would consider our babies quite fit and muscular, but it just goes to show how much breeding/genetics goes into development.

    Now there is a question, can babies be 'fit'

    I'm using fit as in fit for their purpose, so I guess foals are fit to run around and play and sleep....

    I really don't know, CAN you use fit, certainly health, well conformed etc but fit?? What does anyone else think?

    -shrug- I dunno. When I think of fit, I think of lean, muscular, and capable of performing. Both of the kids have well developed toplines, shoulder musculature, round hindquarters, and when they kick off in the field they carry themselves like pros. As weanlings, they would be fit to show, without much hard work on them... That's a good question! I guess it's in semantics. When you think of a "fit" horse, you think of something you ride and could carry you all day and possibly show... But when I think of "fit", I think of well developed, not too thin or too fat...

    I think a baby could be fit. By fit, I mean well filled-out. Some babies are born scrawny and stay lanky for months, whereas others "bloom" and fill out very nicely. You can definitely see muscle definition in a foal, too. Basically a fit foal is a foal that is growing nicely, and getting all the nutrition it needs to grow and bloom.

    I can't believe you let your horse smoke in the first place! LOL I'm so fat now that I'm terrified to quick smoking :/
