lmao really? no one wants to say anything?

riccil0ve 04-26-2010 06:28 PM

Is she, um, pregnant? Because if not, holy fat horse! She's huge, her neck is cresty, and she REALLY needs to be put on a good diet and exercise routine.

mom2pride 04-26-2010 06:31 PM

Agreed...she is carrying a bit more weight than I'd like to see. She needs muscle tone added to that 'weight', and some 'tummy tucks' done, and then she'd look much better.

She appears to be a fairly decent looking girl though...nice clean legs, kind gentle expression, decent shoulder, short backed...she just needs some of that extra 'fluff' taken off.

I'n no good at this but she REALLY needs a diet. I'm not being rude there are alot of helt isues with being over weight. You have a thread about fat people but what about your fat HORSE! Other than that I think shes cute. :)

bellatink89 04-26-2010 07:39 PM

lmao she is ridden at least 5 hours a day 6 days a week and gets a 1/4 pound of patriot pellets a day. we joke all the time that she looks like shes in foal. she loses some of it in the summer but for the most part she keeps most of that belly. thanks though :o) the vet said he wouldnt want her to lose very much weight because its just "her"

bellatink89 04-26-2010 07:41 PM

where do you think she could use some muscle?

riccil0ve 04-26-2010 08:04 PM

Your vet told you she doesn't need to lose weight? Are you kidding? She's HUGE. Her neck is REALLY cresty, you know that's a sign of founder? Her legs are pretty refined, and she is bearing a lot of extra weight. How long do you expect her to go before she runs into all sorts of lameness issues because she's so **** fat? You made the thread about fat riders and putting too much strain on a horse. What makes you think a fat horse isn't putting too much strain on itself? The fat rider at least gets off. The fat horse carries around its fat 24/7.

Exactly! I'd get a new vet if I were you. if she gets any bigger she might pop!

lmao a cresty neck is not always a sign of founder or IR. ive seen plenty of skinny horses that have cresty necks too. shes not that fat. most peoples horses are a little overweight - i consider her a little overweight. and the vet said he wouldnt want her losing TOO much weight. im having him do an IR test in about a month when he comes to do her teeth just to be sure. shes never had any sort of founder or laminitis problems.
