It might be an older horse? I know one of my old mares that we adopted and gave her retirement from breeding was thin when we got her. We had her taken to the dentist and had a bad tooth extracted, but she had the hardest time putting on weight since her molars were in such bad shape. She got a bit sick for a few days and dropped a ton of weight quickly and it took FOREVER to get her weight built back up again. Compared to our other 2 horses at the time, she always looked sad.

I don't know anything about horses but the first one was heart-warming. As I stare at the photo, it seems like he/she is calling for help, or maybe for company?

I was going to say that it looks like it's an older horse also. Sometimes the winter is devastating to older animals. Hopefully that green grass will help.

They are lovely shots. As for skinny- some horses are hard keepers. One of mine used to need grain practically poured into him to hide his ribs. I also think the others are right- he might be older. The little indents above the eyes start to become more noticeable as a horse ages, and his are fairly deep, so that could be it. He looks in good shape otherwise!
