Not jumping on her but, I'm saying this horse needs more weight and she shouldn't be ridden. I feel for her because, I was going through the same thing before. Rumages through pictures....

I am guessing there is a good 2 inches of fur on her correct?
Yes. But tomorrow I'm going to bathe her, which may take off some inches.

About twenty pounds and five pounds of grain until she weighs 1,000 Lbs, like Vals horse, and then get back to my riding routines. From now until then I'll just work on the trailer routine.
Flower, I'm sure you love her. And yes all of us started somewhere. There is no shame to ask questions and no shame to not know something (especially at 11 yo). That's how you learn things - asking and educating yourself.

On those pics she looks like her back is sticking under the angle (heck, I'm always so bad at describing what I see :( ). Which also may be just bad pics/angle. But then you say she weights just 700 lbs and that doesn't sound quite right. That's why all of us were saying she needs more groceries. Now I want to add that it's hard to judge something off the Internet. Again personally I'd look into free choice hay (which is usually cheaper than alfalfa). Is she the only horse on property? If so, round bale probably wouldn't be a good idea.

Thanks :) But Flower doesn't look that thin. She has a bit of fat on her.

Wild Flower, her hips should not stick out that far. If she had fat on her you wouldn't be able to see her hip bones.

Where exactly are you seeing "fat" on her?

Can you get straight on side, front and back pictures of her?

Yep, only horse since her brother past away. But next year were looking into getting another one, after I get a little more experienced with all this. But for some reason she's always been like this, ever since we got her at the other Horse Farm. She only put on a few more pounds, and at first we fed her out the ying yang.

Exactly, what kitten_val said we do not see Flower in person, all we have is the internet. Free choice hay or maybe even a round bale would be ideal for her. Right now she should be getting as much hay as she wants.

Everyone starts somewhere

Sure.. I would, but I feel like I'm being criticized. I can't help she won't gain much weight. I'll see what happens in a few weeks.

In her front. Her chest jiggles when she walks.
