Not sure if the imaged worked, but would love some critique on my whether. We are not allowed to brace in our shows in our county for 4-H, but I think I am going to clarify that with our species coordinator. I know he needs some more muscle, and now that I am almost done with school I will have more time to dedicate to long walks. Any tips would be great!

I know his setup isn't great, we just clipped him for the first time, he wasn't a huge fan at all, better now than before a show though

He looks like a great project. He is clearly standing hunched up in that photo, making it a little hard to see his topline.
to build muscle, put his fed up so he stand with his front legs on a block, cinder block works well.
Do bursts of running, and not long slow walks. You want him to be a sprinter not a marathon runner.
Put a climbing toy in with him, jumping is very good for them.

Don't forget the more you exercise him the more calories he burns so he needs to eat more.

What you feed him, can also make a difference.

Of course genetics plays a role also, but having lots of exercise will help.
