Eep I don't like his front pasterns. They look long and sloppy. Other than that he's cute, I'd def. get him on a wormer though, he looks wormy.

Hi Guys

Yeah his pasterns do look bad in that picture...they aren't that bad in reality. He looks wormy but we think it's just because he's malnuroused. We still wormed him tho. He don't look it in these pictures but he is quite thin. (score ~3) He's looking and I think feeling better already.
I know from the moment I paid for him he was thrown out in a paddock and forgoten about. Poor little guy.
Put his first ever rug on today, he was an angel about it :)
Once I get him fully onto his new diet it won't take long for him to build up.
Cheers for all the advice guys. Keep it coming, I'm a new mum now, need all that I can get :)

Ah he's a cutie. Reminds me of my pony Willy in my avatar. I'm glad he got to you safely and he's in good shape, minus the skinniness.
