[RC] Body Conditions - Katrina O'Neal

Becky ~ here are some links to sites that explain two different Body Condition scoring systems. They were developed so that vets and other horse care people could all be "on the same page" when talking about a horse instead of just saying, "man, he's fat!" or "that's a really thin horse." In some states a horse has to rank below a certain number in thinness before autorities can seize it from the owner. So it's a useful tool.
