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.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
