    Conformation critique

    Here is a sweet little colt. Just turned a year old April 10th.
    APHA with more foundation QH bred from grandparents on.

    Needs a honest Conformation Critique by the pros here ;)

    Besides his tubby winter belly!

    Looking very unbalanaced at the moment but not uncommon for this age
    Hip high making topline unlevel,needs to grow into his head{ Big & common looking at moment},nice length to neck & ties in nicely.Nice slope to shoulder. Clean looking legs with good bone.Would like to see more hip on him.{but I tend to like nice Bubble butt halter hips}
    Actually overall I think he will mature into a pretty nice horse,has more things going for him than not.Alot of those things are going to balance out with maturity.

    Unbalanced, high hocks, decent bone, awkward neck, growing into himself. He had nice angle to back legs, and fronts are pretty straight, fronts and back don't match at all during this point in his life, so I think the high hocks won't be much of an issue as he grows. He has a nice slope to his croup, and after he finishes growing I bet he will have a nice back too. He has a masculine looking head, no mistaking him for a filly. Right now his neck is all wing wongy, which I think is a good thing, I tend to think that means there is a lot of growing taking place. Nice little guy, I would be pleased to be his owner.

    Foal
    I usually avoid critiquing foals because it's so hard to see their strengths but this boy has loads of good things going on. Love his hock angle, nice long legs, shorter back, deep hip, good shoulder angle, nice neck tie in and adorable, interested expression. Looks like a real sweetheart. And of course his color is very attractive. Will look forward to seeing more as he grows!
