coming 2 year old paint colt

What do you guys think of him? He would not stay still until I fed him his grain, he kept following me when I was trying to take pics of him square, but these are a little better than the old pics I had of him. He is on equine junior and free choice loose minerals along with alfalfa hay 3 times a day. Farrier is coming on friday to take care of his feet, they need reshaped. I have had him for 3 days now.

He is also a wooley mammoth...it makes him look funny

Yeah, his back feet turn out more now that I look at the picture. I am hoping that with regular hoof care we can turn them back in a little. He is growing, can't wait till he gets out of his gangly 2 year old stage. Thanks, I love him, he has the best personality!

His neck looks short, but could very well be the picture, I know my coming 2 yr old looks a lot better in person than he does in pics.....but I will add, there is something about his back I don't like, not sure what it is though.

Looks like a cutie though

I see what you mean, CS. It looks like he has very prominent withers and his back joins his butt a bit...funky. Almost like a hunter's bump, but not quite. Could just be the stage he's at, too.

As for his hocks...I don't think he's cow hocked at all. He may toe out a tiny bit more than is ideal, but he's definitely not cow hocked. Remember, a horse's back legs aren't supposed to be straight forward. They are supposed to toe out a bit.

Again, it could just be the stage he's at, but I don't like the way his barrel joins his hind end. He looks tucked up in the belly (almost wasp waisted or herring gutted) and his loin (I think that's what I'm looking at...where his flank and thigh meet) looks really funky/weak.

I've heard that too. Something about the leg clearing the ribcage when in motion.

Yeah, he's different, but I have seen a lot worse colts. He may not be a bad looking guy at all with a little growth on him. He's still got a lot of growing to do. I actually really like his front end!

I have never seen a horse with his back and pelvis meeting quite like that though. That is a bit different.

Yeah, I agree, THR. I think he'll be a handsome fella when he's older and grown into himself. His front end is very nice.

Has he been saddled and backed?

I should hope not, considering he's a coming two-year-old. O.o
