Body Condition scoring
Could anyone tell me if my 1 year old gelding is too skinny?:shock:

it's hard to tell from that picture. I can see a bit of his back bone, but I don't think he's too skinny, probably just growing.
He looks very good to me!

I think he looks fine. Like farm pony said you can see some backbone and a hint of ribs but he's growing.
Heres a body condition score chart for referance: Body Condition Scoring for Your Horse

Thanks. I am new to horses and I worry to death about them all the time!

I say that's a good thing!

He looks fine! You should be able to feel his ribs, but not see them. Thats what my trainer tells me! And I dont see them on your yearling.
