Ah, got it. At the risk of hijacking the thread, what makes him look like he's been saddled and backed already? (Genuinely curious and looking to learn ).

Does the area I have circled not look like a saddle indention to you??

It may just be my eyes, but it sure looks like one to me.
I believe he has been backed but I could be wrong.
He seems to have a very weak top line, I would def nip that in the bud ASAP.

If you're talking about the way his hair has been flattened, yes, it looks like he's had a saddle on, to be honest.

If it's not the way his hair is flattened, I think you might just be seeing higher withers, a weak/undeveloped topline, and the weird way his back joins his loin (that kind of little step up).

Dang, now you've got me wondering, too!

I have noticed with many paints the rump and wethers are of almost equal highth higher then the middle. Ours is no execption. I have noticed that this is not always true with other breeds that are pinto .This is Toby at 15 years

He has been saddled, with a synthetic saddle just for him to wear it around when we walk in the arena. I do not plan on riding him...not sure what "Backing" is...for quite some time. He is too young and small, and not even 2 yet. He will be started lightly as a 2 year old IF he grows a little. If he still looks like this, I am not even going to think about it for another year.

His back is a little weird, but the pics make it look weird with the hair flattened on just his back. The step up to his loin isn't as pronounced when I am looking close at him, the hair sticks up a little more which makes him look kinda strange. He isn't cow hocked, but his feet do turn out a little more than I would like them to, but his hooves are worn down weird and turning them more than they should be. Will be getting proper hoof care

sierras, how do I fix his week topline? Does that just come from working on his collection? I heard backing up hills does it too. But if you have any other ways I would love to hear them
