Conformation critique, 5 year old Quarter Horse.

Pictures can be found here, I know they aren't the best. Yes he's fat, and his feet will be done ASAP. I just got him. I can't tell if he's pigeon toed or if it's the way his feet are chipped... Also he's standing with his legs a bit further apart then normal.

Hard to tell, but it is probably just the trimming needed. (worried about the same thing with my boy)

I couldn't get the pictures large enough to tell any detail. I do think from what I can see that he is really well built; stocky, has a nice neck/shoulder tie in and long neck, great hip. Like him a lot!

looks a nice stocky type of horse. Is he good on trails? Looks like he might be a nice ride.. reliable type.

BTW.. someone needs to trim those weeds in his paddock by the barn! Hrrumph! :)

Lol! The pictures with the weeds was from him previous home :) I haven't gotten a chance to ride him yet, I will on the first when my BO gets her saddle back and can let me borrow it! I'm going to use him as a trail horse and barrels and poles. He didn't spook at all on his first day home even with all the crazy wind and random things blowing around ;)

I think he has a pretty nice body and yes is a little bit pigeon toed but not terribly. Personally I think his neck is a little heavier than I would like but that could be fixed by sweating his neck if you wanted to. He is a very nice $200 horse!
