Soda is a QH, I've been told he's very "typey" His legs are a little twiggy for my taste as are his hooves, but he's not quite as delicate as he appears..
When you say "how to stand" is that basically with his feet side by side each other? ( hind feet next to each other, and front the same)?
Is his neck a bit thick? Does it tie into his shoulder high or low? I've still been trying to get a hang of where the neck is supposed to come out.
QOS- When you mean a speed index of 98 how fast is that in mph?
You've got great horses, and I like the coloring of the first one...:)
Skyedawn-"Noooooooo, straight bred halter horses can't even be ridden. Or shouldn't be, I should say." Then why do they?...........Oh I see...not... lol Yikes that horse has BAD feet ouch! I think I've got that figured out...
Pose- You'd think they'd breed the horses up so that they could actually function....
How is the neck supposed to tie into the chest?
