Critique this Cowboy!

This is Just Call Me Cowboy, a 4 year old 17hh OTTB. He is sweeter than sunshine, and has a disposition to die for, but I'm no smartie at conformation. I don't really care if he has horrid confo, so if he does, just tell me what's wrong :p Thanks!

Note we just got him yesterday, and I think he is a bit thin. He also has rainrot on his rump, so we couldn't really brush him off becuase we only have 1 set of brushes, and 4 horses. He is getting baths untill we get him his own brushes :)

Rain rot isn't contagious as far as I know. I'd get the icky off asap. He is a little thin, but mostly looks like a long, lean TB to me!

Rain rot can be incredibly contagious.

He needs some groceries and holymoly look at how long those legs are! Someone with more conformation knowledge will be able to help you, I'm sure. :) It's also difficult to tell with this picture. Can you get some pictures of him squared, and from behind and from the front?

Also, don't give him too many baths. It's bad for his skin which can ruin his coat.

ETA: why did they stop racing him?

No worries, he hasn't had a bath for about a week ;) We have 2 designated brushes for him now - a curry and a stiff brush. He will only be getting his next bath when it gets warm enough.

He has rreeaallyy long legs :p He moves beautifully with them though. He is just a lovely jumper, and since I am 5'7, I needed a big boy ;) Plus I have some sort of fetish about being up high o.o

I will try to get some better pictures tomorow in the light, with the dusties brushed off.

They stopped racing him because he makes a sort of huffy/hardish breathing noise if you work him for a really long time really hard. Or just really really really really hard (racing.) It's not a diesies or really even a condition, and it doesn't effect his riding as the way I do. He could still do Jumpers, it's just the galloping flat out was too hard on him. Hunters will be the best option though, so I will be doing that :) I do love jumpers, and we might try it, but if his heavy breath starts pulling up, I will bring him back to Hunters. I love both :) And I love Cowboy ;)

Thank you!!

What do you mean by, 'he needs some grocieries?' :p Sorry, I'm just confused.

Hmm. Sounds like roaring.....what are you going to do with him? Relatively light use? SHould be fine for that.....He is cute-thin neck, will fatten up nicely, altho I am no expert.

Microtek works well on rain rot, fyi.

He needs to fatten up is what they mean by needing groceries.

Well, TB's aren't my thing, so I probably shouldn't comment.....but.... with groceries and conditioning, I think he would look lovely. His neck is a bit thin and will improve greatly in appearance with some eats and conditioning, I am sure.

By the heading I was hoping for a real cowboy which got me thinking. Why not have a critique section for hunky men. LOL

17hh, black, conformation, ottb, thoroughbred
