Friesians are slow growers, and often don't really finish filling out until they are five or six, so it is not unusual to see some gawky 3 year olds. Weight-wise - as a growing horse and one that is going into training, you might want to step-up the feed if you are worried about him being underweight. However, being narrow is not the same as thin. Many young Friesians are -very- narrow in front until they have been in work for a while and begin developing the muscles in their chest. (Alot of young friesians have a "chicken-bone chest" where their breast bone protrudes, but this will fill in with muscle, broaden and smooth over completely as they age and come into work.
