Started working with him recently and well, I took a couple of pics to document so I can see progress through the summer. So, here are two from last night. He is 18 yrs old.

Good job with him looks great!!!

LOL Sky is FAR from fit. He was at one point fairly fit for his training.. but now he's a pasture puff that gets ridden every so often and he's loving it for the most part.

He's got quite the hay belly and while his topline has improved.. not much of it there atm! And sorry for using these pics.. I use the most recent ones I've got :/

He's got some muscle but it's not as toned as it should be.

Pooh, bah. I am not uploading pics of my "robust" mare. She was thin, once - when I first got her as a filly. :) If I had then known she had such an unbelievably efficient metabolism, I wouldn't have laid the groceries to her! I have to weigh every ounce of her feed...its that bad. She has incredible, she is not unfit....just a wee bit chunky.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
