He looks very nice. A nice girth and shoulder. His neck ties in nice, a round rump. I think he makes a great prospect. His legs look great!

Id like to see him standing squared. To me in the last picture- looks like his forelegs are too straight--hard to really give a good opinion in those pictures, lol.. I like how he scopes out, lol.

Not bad.

For barrels, his hocks are too far off the ground for my tastes. I like their hocks to be low to the ground, so they can dig down around a turn.

I'd also like to see his hindquarters more rounded.

Not sure that I like how his thick neck ties in with his body, but it could just be the photos too.

He does (as someone mentioned) have a nice deep heart girth.


Personally, I like the looks of Chicados Cash. He's my "ideal" barrel horse confo. (Not to mention NFR quality!)

If he doesn't do well in barrels, you have a nice jumper to fall back on.
