I would keep a log of pictures with dates and descriptions of various body areas and the changes you see.

You would be able to note things like "eyes are less sunken" "coat is much thicker" "coat has become shiny" "you can't hang your hat on her hip bones anymore" "Ribs are filling in".

This becomes especially important when some well-meaning idiot reports you to animal control because you are starving your horsie. If you can document the horse's progress, and especially if your vet will make notes on your health log, you can tell those people to go to some very warm places.
