-Big long hip
-Straight correct legs
-Lower set hocks
-Shorter pasterns
-Good bone

I also like a good soggy horse, not a big fan of the super lean built ones (even though I do have one, but he has lots of other great characteristics).

Here are 2 of mine, not the best pictures.



I personally like JJs build a lot better and he is a bit more balanced than Scrat. He is also a lot heavier built then Scrat which is how I like them...big and wide.

No JJ is by Dats A Frenchman (Frenchman Guy x Juno Dat Cash) out of a Jet of Honor x Biankus mare. And Scrat is by a son of DAF (Frenchman Guy x Biankus) and out of a Zan Parr Bar x Biankus mare.
