    2 year old QH gelding

    This is Wyatt, my new project barrel horse. He is just over 2 years old, 13.2 hh Quarter horse (not registered). Picked him up 7/28 from a muddy lot, where he had been picked on by an older mare. Was terrified, wouldn't let us touch him, ran in the opposite direction. It is now day 5 of having him home, and he is the sweetest gelding. Even let me put a blanket on with a "girth". Just want some conformation critique. The only issue I have with him is that he refuses to let me pick up his right hind foot. He is fine with the other three, and I'm guessing he is either sore in that hip area, or it's his hoof (which is missing a good chuck out of it).
    I will be adding photos to this album as the days come. I appreciate any and all comments!
    *I will try to get him set up right when I go see him today*

    He has a nice booty! Looks like he will make a nice little barrel horse.

    He has a nicely set neck and an adequate shoulder. Front legs look good with nicely placed knees (low). His back is short and he has a very strong and correct coupling. Croup is adequate length and he has a very good hind quarter with a lot of muscle and hip.

    His hind legs have large nicely placed hocks but he is quite sickle hocked and he may actually be a little cow hocked. The weakest aspect of this horse are the angles and set of the hind legs. I wish he had a better hind leg.

    Like him otherwise. A little fat... ;)
