APHA gelding

Hi all,
So I was out grooming my gelding and he standing somewhat square (though he cocked his leg at the last minute) So I thought I put him up here for another critique



Sorry the pic came out huge

I like his shoulder
Nice depth through the girth
Very thick neck but it looks good on him ;)
Front legs look good as well
Back is a decent length, however it appears to have a slight sway to it..
Very prominent point of croup
Steep slope to the croup
Nice hunky hindquarters
Hard to say about the back legs, but they give the impression of being somewhat posty

Soo happy to hear about the hunky hindquarters! Last time he had a critique they were really lacking.

The sway in his back comes and goes. He has a really weak back right now, once he gets some muscle it will hopefully look better.

Agreed, Lins, I love a hunk of a horse! He's gorgeous. First thing I noticed was his thick, cresty neck! Was he gelded late? He has a nice, sloped shoulder. Handsome boy!

His neck appears pretty thick which looks okay on him but with the thickness in his throatlatch, it could interfere with his breathing when asked to flex at the poll. He is sway backed, but his back appears okay in length. Good work on the flat will strengthen his abdominal muscles and should correct that. I would like to see less slope to his croup, but his lower legs look good and overall not a bad horse :)

Well, that would explain his stud neck then :)
