Fat Horses

What is the general opinion on the amount off weight a horse shoould carry
at the start of a season?
I am currently feeding my stallion enough to keep him in fairly round
condition as we are starting out, some people feel I am feeding him too much
as he needs to be leaner! But he will loose as we get further into the
season and once he starts loosing during the season I will not get the
weight on again (or as easily as know!) So is it better too start with a
fattish horse and work them into condition or to start with a horse carrying
ideal weight and just struggle/feed like hell through the season to keep
them there?

Mawlud (retired from competition for two years)
Shadixx (first season)
Snowy (Mawluds replacement, overweight, but hey we can roll on the hilliar
courses and so save energy!!)
