Ok - Stella is closer to a 3 than a 2 in my opinion - at least from the pictures. Most definitely still needed weight on her.
As to the original post, I do agree - though I haven't seen it so much on this forum, but I have seen it in the horse world in general. 5 should be the ideal, but I see a lot of people thinking a 6 or even 7 is ideal and actually tell people with horses with body scores of right around 5 it was too thin.
But a lot of it was dependent on what people grew up seeing and are used too.
It seems like in EVERY FREAKING post I make... you have to point out that I'm completely wrong... almost to the point of stupidity on my part!!
I'm NOT talking about Mozart, Deniro (the chestnut), or Coco (the bay). I'm not saying that they're fat or chubby... or that they have perfect weight. So PLEASE shut up about them. You don't know anything about their stories, why they're this way, or anything. You assume without getting ANY facts... which is one of the worst things you can do. Honestly... from what I'm seeing right now... if you heard from one person that a certain man is a killer... you'd immidiately condemn that man to death. Whether he really was a killer or not.
And Ruby Tuesday... I'm not saying that horses don't need to gain weight. I'm just tired of people posting pictures of chubby horses (not overweight, but good weights), and saying that they're thin and need to gain a ton of weight.
Look... I'm sorry that I'm not allowed to rant. I'm SO freakin sorry that I can't say one thing without having everyone say how wrong I am. ARGH!!!
Wow. I am very confused about where this is all coming from ...
I think I get what you're saying.But there are also ppl that make excuses of why a skinny horse is skinny. Could be for attention, I dunno. I def see it, but more of horses that are skinny.It's not too big of a deal tho....
