I beg to differ. Every elderly horse myself or my mother has ever had stayed looking full figured. Old, yes. You can't always halt aging but unless there is an extreme medical condition going on there is no excuse for a super thin old horse. Just because they are harder to keep does not mean you can get away with not putting in the effort to keep them up.
