    7 month colt conformation

    This colt is now 7 months old. Would like to use him as a english/dressage and western pleasure. Not competing at a national level just local shows. It is ok if you do not like him as I appreciate honesty overall else. He has great movement and length of stride. Thanks in Advance. Some pics are at various ages and I know conformation on youngsters can change. Sorry the pics are not perfect. Hard to get by yourself. Bravo left head.jpg

    I don't know but he is CUTE!

    It's also hard to tell when they're so young.

    He looks good to me. I doubt he will make a halter horse- his muscle mass is light compared to a halter horse of his age.

    He might be a tad over in the knee in his baby pictures, but I think he is already outgrowing that. He also might be a little narrow behind. Nothing I would be concerned about and for local shows you should be fine.

    He does stand camped under in some of the pictures but he is not standing squarely so I would not pay much attention to that.

    The mare and stallion's conformation may give you a better idea of what he will turn out like. For what you want him to do, I would not worry about his conformation.

    Arthritis can have a genetic link, and even a pretty looking horse can have bad X rays. If the parents are sound, I would not be concerned.

    I love paints. I think his coloring is beautiful!

    Thank you for your critique. His mother had a injection after his birth that caused her to get several accesses and her milk to dry up. Although she could not nurse him, he stayed by her side. They bottle fed him every hour as he stood right at her belly. She hung on till he was weaned but they could not save her. Here know he has a lot of catching up to do. I have him on premium food and so only time will tell. He is already as tall as my mare that is 15.2.

    I think he will be good for you. Both parents are lovely and I'm sorry to hear about mom.
    He is flashy and handsome (looks smart too) and correct for his age. And while he is not a competitive halter prospect (not necessarily a bad thing..) you never said you wanted that, correct? I think he will be able to do what you want and more. Would love to see a video.

    ETA he looks more English type to me. He seems to have a naturally high (but nice) headset, and I think is maybe opposite of what you would look for as a WP prospect (and the opposite of what you would train your English horse for). I'm sure he could do it for fun, just seems a little opposite from where you want to go and what he would be suitable for, but no expert here!

    His brother does dressage and english as did his mom. His dad did reining and cutting. What would you suggest he would be good at? No not looking for a halter horse but a performance horse. :) he is homozygous for color but not sure I want to keep him a stallion. His father is super gentle stallion and I wasn't able to meet his mom. I thought he was pot bellied when I got him but he is starting to look better. He has had three deworming and is on pellets twice daily and alfalfa hay free feeding. Thank you! :)
