arabian mare
so no im not looking for conformation critique but i was wondering does my mare look like shes at a good weight she needs lots of muscle right now but should i up her feed a bit to get her weight up some or does she look good. Keep in mind this horse hasn't been used for a year an a half so i think she looks good considering haha
(yes i know she needs her feet trimmed im in the process of getting the number to my friends farrier)

Can't see her ribs and her hip, back, and withers aren't jutting out, so I would say she looks in decent shape, just needs to muscle up.

I think her weight looks fine. You are right that she is out of shape, but no worse than my weekend warriors.

I would kill for either of my two arabs to look like that. They are both round as round can be.

She looks a good weight and very fit. If I were going to turn her out for the winter I would want some more weight on, but for a riding horse, she looks great :]

wild spot-we dont have fields where i live sadly i wish we did though. but i am very lucky she isn't round i figured out why she isn't round nd it has to be because she hates beign left by herself so she will pace but she isn't doing it as much now since shes being ridden thankfully.
northern mama-thanks haha she will hopefully look better by the end of the summer
