Critique my 10 year old Qh

he's definitely cute and love his butt! He is a bit short in the neck and straight in the shoulder and in some of the pics looks like he turns out a little but I still think he is a real cutie.

My only real negative comment is the over straight hind leg.. very very straight through the hock. He looks very quick and solid other wise. Very tough looking horse.

He is very very quick! I think he is a little short backed but he has a nice trot. His lope is a little bouncy and I think it has something to do with that short back.

Rather a handy and quick horse that can work than a super smooth horse that takes a lot to train to balance. Love that this horse did heeling.

Looks like a ranch horse.. like a horse you would be proud to ride all day trailing cattle.

Thanks! We use him to doctor the calves and he will let you work gates off him! Best part is I purchased him a year ago for 350 and I only have had to refine his training cause it was all there and ready when I got him!
