An observation

There's fat and then there's big-boned, and I for one don't think it's a bit fair to call someone one versus the other until you've seen x-rays. Myself, I have a particularly big tummy-bone.


  1. Ah Fenway, you are so right! My TB gelding has a very big ribcage & has occasionally been questioned about whether there was some sort of immaculate conception, because he looked like there must be a foal in there! Our new barn owner skeptically smiled & nodded when I told her that he wasn't fat, he has an exceptionally large ribcage. He has lost a bit of weight this summer, running the hills of his new pasture, and the other day she said to me, "You know, Mosco has a HUGE ribcage! You can almost see his ribs now & he's still enormous!". Perhaps you are similarly conformed ;-)

  2. Dear Fenway,

    You are right about those tummy bones. Some equids tend to have larger ones that only make them LOOK fat. I'm sure your actually very fit and trim!

    Muleishly yours,

  3. I understand completely, Fenway; I have a very big tummy bone too :-) (I wonder if my doctor will accept that excuse..)


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
