He's a lovely looking fella, are the pictures recent? Just asking as if the last one is right then he may need a little more weight, he looks a little ribby (hope you don't mind my saying).
I have ridden cobs in the past and they are great armchairs and very strong! :)

Am not great at weight carrying advice though so won't guestimate, it will be over the general rule of thumb of a stone a hand I would guess though. :)

Those pic's where took back in the spring when i first got him, he was very weedy looking when i first got him, but he has filled out almost double the size :D i will get more pic's tomorrow so you can see how much he has changed,

Thenxs for the adive Wally, i thought it would probably be about that weight but wasn't totally sure :D
 

happy haffys

I know nothing about height to weight ratio, but i did read in a recent horse magazine that the maximum weight should be no more than 20% of the horses body weight. Luckily when i'd remembered my maths from a long, i realised i was ok for Etta :confused:

I took these pic's today, Can you see the difference??? He has put on loads of weight since the beginning of the year! I used to ride him in a medium width saddle, he is now creeping into me friends wide width one LOL

And i know, he needs a bath he's bogging :p

He looks a sturdy little fellow, I'd not worry about 12 stone of balanced rider on him.

Aww thank you everybody for the lovely comments! :D He is pretty sturdy and filling out nicely! Can't wait till he's a bit fitter, would love to do some jumping or cross country on him! That would be fun :) :)
