He looks more western to me I think because he's chunkier and low, rather than leaner muscle and more upright, for lack of a better description. He's got a nice built western horse type hind end. I think his best feature. Also could be just the way he is standing, but he appears to be ever so slightly sickle hocked, not enough that I would consider a fault but I notice WP type horses having this same confo. I heard it can make for a smoother ride. His neck ties in low at his shoulder, reminds me of a western horse as well. This is just my opinion, not saying that is how western horses are, just what makes ME think western.

thanks Sarah Ann. :) i knew he wasn't conformationally perfect for what i want to do with him, but his brain is just amazing. never spooky, always curious and in your pocket, always wanting to go for adventures, tons and tons of try - all things that, imo, make a "perfect" horse. we'll see what he grows up to be. ;)

the farrier is scheduled to come out on sunday so i'll take pics after he's had his pedicure. :)

anyone else?
