Ewe neck, gone?,!

I was looking at some old pics of when i first got Specs, and noticed A slight ewe neck in the old pics, and then I look at recent photos and he doesn't have it at all... Idk if this is correct info, but when some horses gain muscle in their necks, doesn't it make the ewe looking neck go away? Or is that false information?
Maybe my eyes are crazy... But I swear.
I'm on my phone right now, but when I get home I'll upload a before after pic to see if you notice it too.

Every horse is an angel... They just don't need wings to soar!

He's probably learned to use his neck properly and developed the top muscles so that they're in balance with the bottom neck muscles. Since he's now carrying his neck rounded rather than 'upside down' it's not showing.

He probably just built up the muscles over his topline. :)

Agreed- he must have built up his topline. That's great!
