Is my mare fat?

I'm sot of worried about a Koalas weight issue, these photos were taken a few days ago. I'm pretty sure she's a little overweight, but then again, I'm not sure if that's an all right weight. She is three and 15.3hh

I'd say that she's a tad bit overweight unless she's of a breed that's bulky/larger boned so to say..

Just going off these pictures (which aren't the best for judging weight) I would say it looks like she's overweight.

you need better photos. She looks fine in the 1st 2 and she could look pudgy in the last one because of the way her body is bunched up.

First pic, can't tell.

Second pic looks fine

Third pic looks wY overweight.

She is only 3 and 15.3hh? I would be careful with her weight for sure, I also wouldn't be doing poles with her either

First pic, can't tell. Second pic I think she could almost stand to gain some weight, then in the third pic she looks fine. Judging by her legs she just seems bigger boned and more heavily built, so overall I'd say she's at a good weight now.
