Thank you.She is a lovely thing! Her weight looks pretty darn good, so whatever she weighs now, consider calling it her "ideal"weight and feed her accordingly.
Im from Saudi Arabia We do have winter but not as cold as everywhere else.In January, I let mine approach 6 on the scale bc January is the coldest month of the year. We can have wind chills below the actual temperatures of sometimes -20 degrees F. They will naturally drop weight in April/May bc they won't need the fat anymore. Arabian Beauty, you don't have your location in your signature. If you live in the SW your horse probably doesn't need any more weight. There are few if any chronic health problems from keeping a horse slightly underweight, but this excludes hard keepers, which some Arabians are. Hard keepers have to have extra calories if you work them, and yours looks healthy, but out of shape. Keep that in mind if you start working your horse. =D
Thank you I think she is beautiful too. I will post more pics of her soon.I suspect summer is more of a weather issue for the horses there.
Your horse is very beautiful.
It's fairly warm here this morning, -1C, but I'm looking at temps of -25C by mid week.
We have a bunch of students at the University in town from Saudi Arabia. It's hilarious watching the boys get their first taste of a New England winter. At first they try to be tough but very quickly layer upon layer of clothing is added. I'm sure they were warned about winter but it's not something you can imagine without experiencing it. The few girls are more sensible and add layers right away.
