Critique for my Morgan yearling.

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate some conformation critique for my Morgan colt, Indy. He is 99% Foundation bred, is 7/8 Lippitt, and he just turned 1 year old on the 28th. Also, how do you think his weight looks for a yearling?

Thanks!

He's a nice fellow. Obviously very gangly and long legged at the moment, as he's a yearling, but he'll grow into himself.
I'd like a picture from behind, as his tail looks a bit funny.
He might have a slight ewe neck, but I really can't tell.

I'll leave the critique to the experts, but on a scale of handsomeness, I reckon he scores pretty high! Not so sure about his pinto buddy in the background though . .

Here are some pictures from the back. They aren't very good but they were all I could get.

I'm so-so at comformation specifics,

But...

He looks sooooo much like my Morgan filly when she was a yearling, and she turned out might mighty fine - strong, healthy, and with lovely, smooth gaits. If I compare my old pictures, about the only thing I see different is that my filly had a more arched, longer neck. I don't know which is "correct" for the breed at that age.

Hey! Can't say much about proper Morgan conformation, but he looks really similar to my mother's mare, who is 3/4 Lippit :) Even the mane and tail look similar, as well as his fetlock hair. Must be a Lippit thing!

Really cute!!

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
– I love you, Mudpie!
