Critique my badass brown!

During my hunt for an event horse, this guy kinda fell into my lap. He has a super disposition, and seems very willing, but green. Took him to a desensitization clinic last weekend and he did really well. Not sure if he will be my prospect, or end up being a trail horse or something else, but in the meantime, he will be a nice guy to learn some things on. He is a 7 year old, 16'2hh Canadian OTTB. Came to me underweight and with horrible feet. We are working on both, and have made improvements I think. What do you guys see? Good/Bad? Anything stick out? (Besides his obvious badass brownness!! )

I would take him. He has an awesome shoulder and forearm; very large and upright and open. He had big knees, though a bit tied in behind, slightly over but this is minute. His hip is great. His back is a bit long and his coupling a bit thin but I like his look a lot.

For me he would be a keeper. He's got such a sweet baby face.

What a beautiful boy. I agree he has a gorgeous shoulder and forearm. Very big, open, and probably means he has a -nice- big stride. His hind end is a little flatter than the front in my opinion, but this is not wrong/bad, just an observation. He has a very nice neck and throatlatch, clean and well-built. He is a little behind in the knee, but his nice canon bones make up for it. A very sturdy boy indeed!

-> tinyliny, can you explain/show me where to look to see the "thin coupling"? I am not sure what this means exactly. :)

Cheers,

Thanks guys! And yes, please explain the coupling Tiny... I cannot for the life of me figure that part of conformation out!!

I am trying so hard to not fall in love before I really know his potential, but yeah....that face. And he loves attention. He's uncomplicated, just doesn't know anything at all. Sooooo much better than knowing the wrong things and having to retrain. He is a completely blank slate. I haven't even had him 3 weeks!

Very nice type. Pasterns are a nice length/angle - that will hold up well with jumping and hard work. Unusual in TBs too. Beautiful shoulder and neck will be wonderful once he develops topline. If he has a good temperament to boot, lucky you!!!

Not to mention his colour....WIN!

All the best with him!

He has a very sweet and kind face. Nice shoulder and could use a little muscle on the hind end. He looks very nice to me.
