I would be inclined to get a chiro out to look at his back - the way he is holding his tail to the left in those photos from behind doesn't look quite right to me.

It could be anything from a tweaked nerve to nothing, but it wouldn't hurt to get it checked out. Probably just tweaked it playing in the field, as boys are prone to doing ;)

Well... I wish I was good at conformation.

Nope. He'll never do. You should hide him far, far away in a barn... mine to be exact. lol.

He's super cute and looks like he has quite the personality. Good luck with him!

Really cute!!
Thanks:) I think the hair is a Lippitt thing, his mom, dad, and full brother all have that thick curly hair, as well as most pictures I have seen of Lippitts.

Here are some pictures from when he was younger, it looks like he was holding it straight then. And I just glanced out at him in the field and he is holding it to the right, so I don't know!
