    2 Years Old, Hows he looking?

    Hello again forum friends! My horse Riker recently turned 2 and I was curious as to what you all think of him in his current growth stange. If any additional pictures are needed I can provide, just ask. ^_^

    I think he looks fairly balanced for a two year old. First thing that caught my eye is how light boned he is. A bit downhill, but may level out. Fairly short back. A bit too straight through the hind leg and slightly tied in at the knee up front. Shoulder adequate, but could be more sloping. Hip a bit short as well as slightly steep croup. Nice slope to pasterns. Pretty color and cute expression. Does he have some Arab in him?

    What breed is he?

    He is downhill a bit, and a bit post-legged. Hard to tell with the pictures, but looks like his back is too long (compared to the neck). Hocks are set a bit high for my liking.

    I sure like his head and his shoulder though.

    He is an APHA QH. Sorry, should of included that information. While taking these photos I was having him backup and move forward quite a bit trying to get him to square up, perhaps I made him look weird by having him "pose" so to say. Here are a couple more photos. Thanks for the replies so far!! :)

    He is just really lightly built, lightly muscled for an APHA. I think the original photos are pretty good and he doesn't look weird to me. He still has lots of growing to do.

    Alrighty. Thank you all for the replies. I don't know what half of it means so I'll be doing a lot of reading haha.

    Heh. Pretty sure I am keeping this guy for a good while! :) I absolutely love his coloring too. I can't wait until he is full grown.
