Pictures of Horses
I dont know if this is the thread I need to post this but oh well. Close enough. I really want to see how a horses conformation is compared. Fat, built, moderately thin, skinny..etc... Pictures of the top line. Like my mare has lost weight and I am working on getting that back but her topline sucks and I am too afraid to ride her. Her spine isnt too bad but enough where you can see it. There is a hump before the hip bones and butt bones on her spine and I would like to know what bone it is. I need to ride her and maybe as I am working on her weight with food, I can rebuild these muscles along her topline. I dont want to ride her hard as that defeats the purpose of putting on weight. I heard hill work is good, but I dont really have any hills here. Does anyone know any sites where I could get pics of horses fat, skinny, thin..etc....? How long also should it take for you to see any result after starting them on a weight gain diet?

Not quite sure what you're looking for, however here are a few of my before and afters... and the time it took to achieve the difference you see.
In the "Afters" take a a few months later you can see the horses are more well muscled. Typically I can get weight back on in 2-4 weeks in these cases, at which time I do not ride.

Thoroughbred Gelding "Before"

One month later:

QH Mare "Before"

This was a couple weeks later:

Arabian cross Gelding "Before"

And two weeks later:

Thoroughbred Gelding "Before"

And FOUR months later:

QH Mare "Before"

And two weeks later:

ANOTHER Thoroughbred Gelding "Before"

And about three months later:

Love how most of the horses are a couple weeks, and then there's the dreaded TB's :-)

You guys are awsome! I will take pics of my mare today. It will be from my phone so bare with that. What did you do to get these guys looking better so quick? I have been feeding my mare now two weeks or more two scoops of senoir and 3 cups beet pulp. No real change. Once a day tho. Mayb start two feedings?

I'm not sure how to spell it but I've heard good things about Calfmana?

mbender 09-05-2010 09:08 AM

Is this what you used?

mbender 09-05-2010 09:15 AM

oops wrong person. i was asking the person who has the pics of the before and afters. isnt calf mana a milk replacer?

I believe she uses a combination of a good quality senior feed, safechoice, and beet pulp. Puts weight on very quickly!!

mbender 09-05-2010 09:48 AM

Ok, that is exactly what I am feeding. Do you possibly know how much that arab cross weighed? My arab mare weighs approximatley 800lbs. I am feeding 2scoops of that senior feed and 3 cups of beet pulp once a day. Did she feed twice? I would love to know?! thanks for helping me out
