    Opinions on conditions and grooming

    Was just wondering on his overall condition. We have only just got him a few months ago was quite sickly when arrived. I understand that he need a bit more of a top line but overall is there anything else that may need to be changed?

    As for grooming I know his mane and forelock need to be thinned but how much of a bridle path would you recommend for this horse?

    And is there anything else that may need to be adjusted.

    P.s this was just a quick clip to see what was under him and keep a better eye on his condition

    Thanks

    Any opinions are welcome

    And wolud you recommend getting a cable halter or a thicker one. The one he has on is a little small just brought a cheapish one to go for sizing

    He does not look sickly. And I don't see any bones sticking out ..not ribby etc.
    You can find nylon mini halters, the wider the straps the milder .

    This was him when he first arrived he has been with us for about 2 months now was infected with worms and had no muscle and top line.

    yer he normally has a nylon halter on but for showing because he seem to have a large head would it be better to go for a thicker halter rather then a cable?
