    Conformation Critique...

    Tear him up! I already know his faults.....just thought I would post lol.

    Scrat 6yr old QH Gelding

    Pictures taken from 2012 summer, headset might be a little off doing to his lead being looped around a branch as I was a one man show lol. And I don't have any correct front or backend shots so you will have to work with this.

    Honestly the only thing I dislike is his very thick, seemingly-upside-down neck. He is a little long in the back. For a halter horse he has pretty nice legs compared to most. He could use a little trimming in the throatlatch, and I think I would like to see his tail set lower, but that could be his stance.

    Pretty nice overall. For a halter horse he looks great. Performance horse, I would like to see much beefier legs and a much shorter back with a more angled shoulder.

    I see a streange bone formation on his left hock.

    I don'thtink he's upside down on the neck, but his neck is a bit chunky and maybe a bit overdeveloped on the underside, but it's not conformation by birth but by riding.

    I agree Tiny, and I think his neck is set highish so that contributes to the look. I too see the strange hock thing :s

    Pretty sure he's not halter bred at all. He's a barrel horse.

    Nice boy.

    Bailey, I love all your horses and anytime you wanna send one to me, I've got an empty stall.

    How does his conformation make him a barrel horse? Just curious, as he seems made for the halter ring, not the performance ring. Then again I can't say I have ever understood how barrel horse conformation works: they always seem kind of discombobulated-looking to me, but I suppose it must work.

    Yes he is barrel horse bred....with his dams sire being ZPB bred, other then that it is all barrel horse.

    Also his neck is thick because he was a stud till he was 5, so spring of 2012. And he actually has good bone to him, the photo doesn't really show that but he is pretty thick in the bone department.

    Looks straight through the hocks and tied in at the knee. He has a lot of the look of Zan Parr Bar.

    Zan Parr Bar was a halter horse that rode.. had his ROM (western Pleasure) and superior (steer roping) he was mostly known for his halter performance and being the 1977 High Point Halter stallion and AQHA World Champion 3 year old. He was World Champion aged stallion in 1979 and World Champion aged Halter Stallion and High point steer roping horse in 1980.

    He was also a bit straight thru the hocks and had a similar front leg to this horse but this horse has a steeper shoulder.

    This is a pretty nice Quarterhorse.. Like him. :)
