Coming 2 1/2year old Crit.

Last time I had Rodeo critiqued was a good 6months ago, and with his official 2 1/2 year old mark coming around the corner, figured why not get another?!

A lot has been going on in the past 6months. BO switched his feed back to Omolene 100 without letting me know, he was being stalled for majority of the day without hay....since finding out these nice discoveries, I have since brought him home. Not by any means ideal, but things are improving, and plans for expanding the "pasture" have been made, as well as new fencing, and a new shelter!

Anyways, pics of him 6months ago



Last month pics


Today Pics


Sorry, only one decent one from today, will have to get some more soon.

But anyways, any improvements since his 2yr old build? Anything that has gotten worse? Also, if you could tell me how you think his weight looks at the moment, that would be great! He is getting hay throughout the day now, and I have since switched him to a different grain. On a worming schedule, supplement to prevent sand colic schedule!

Things I already know....

Long Pasterns, short neck, over at the knee, straight in the hind end, butt high.....as for him being downhill, I think I might have to accept the fact that he is just going to be downhill. Out of the time I have owned him, I only recall a handful of times where he didnt look awfully downhill.

Thanks so much!

Well all I really see different fromt he one a month ago..hes more butt high...but being only 2 1/2 that's expected.

Charlie was the same way....it felt like he was ALWAYS butt high when he was growing....but now he's 6 and he's really evened out...its just going to be a waiting game for ya until he finishes growing. Everything else I think you touched on.

But he's looking GOOD!

Weight is good. Bone is good. Over at the knee is not an issue at the amount he is (just a looks thing, not an unsoundness).
He is standing over a bit more ground than a few months ago. He is a bit sickle hocked and the rest you have noted. He has a fairly nice shoulder.. a bit steep. What is that around his right hind ankle? Looks like he bunged himself up? Almost looks like a curb forming in his right hind hock in the last picture.

I have said this before (and gotten argument here.. which is fine.. we don't need to agree). The majority of horses that are butt high as yearlings WILL be butt high as adult horses. They just do not even up that much MOST of the time (Most is not All).

This is a good looking horse. Are you ground driving him yet? He is old enough for that and some long lining.

Right hind ankle is just some vet wrap, was on for probably about an hour before I decided just to take it off. Scraped himself a few months ago, that healed up, and he scraped himself again yesterday. As for a curb forming in his hind hock, could be, or could just be the angle. Trying to get good photos of him at the moment isnt too fun.

Here are some other photos from today, didnt post them as I feel like they may do more harm than good





Thanks for the crit!! Like hearing what other people see

I agree! I like him. All the things you stated before I agree with, so I am no help whatsoever. He is croup high, but so is my guy, and we do great!

What are you planning on doing with him?

Plan for him is for him to be my all around horse. Will mainly be a trail horse, but I like to mess around with both English and Western riding, so....would like to show him a bit as he gets older, don't expect to win much, just more for fun

Is this an almost-level horse I see? It can't be...

Hahah I know right!!! When I first saw this pic I couldnt believe it either, and to top it off, the ground is level where he was standing!! I think this is the most level he has been yet to be honest!
