    Fat to Muscle? Or Fat to Fat?

    Alright, so here are pictures of my mare whenever we first got her. About. . . 7 years ago I think? I was thirteen in this picture -.- and my little sister was. . 10 I believe. This was about a month after she foaled.

    And this was her about two years ago.

    This was her about a year ago with an eight month break due to a leg injury

    I can't take current pictures, considering her giant baby belly is probably half fat :P I spoil my girls with food and hay, alfalfa and grass. Then again, she also works like a work horse. I've noticed she is really easy to lose her muscle or built look within about a month of no work. -.-

    So what are you wanting to know? If she had muscles? If she's fat?

    Muscles get smaller when they don't get used. Fat occurs when there are more calories taken in than expended. It does take sufficient energy(calories) to build muscles.

    Make sense?

    Are you wantn a criticism? She don't look fat or very muscular to me.. that's how my mare looked before I started riding her-- she was a pasture poof ball and a broodie most of her life.. she wasnt thin or muscled.. just.. I don't know the word to describe, lol. but she was kinda like that.. just smooth-- no muscle or fat really- but not ribby malnourished or sickly either.. weaker and out of shape for sure..

    Your mare just doesnt look like she's ment to be a big mare though.. she could be a little more toned up and be better in shape- but she just aint that bigga gal.

    fat, mare, muscle, quarter
