wow! thank you for all of the input everyone! he's definitely a camera ham, I'm glad you guys noticed the grin as well :) I definitely agree that his back is a tad long, but for his age and background I am quite happy that its still in such good shape. the western saddle that I ride in definitely hides that bit of extra length. Ok I wasn't imagining things about his feet! I saw his right front flare as well, which surprised me since he was owned by a farrier...its nothing horrible so my farrier and I are just going to do a nice adjustment to it and see how it goes from there.
tinylinly & sierrams, trust me I see the ASB too when I look at him! I actually thought he was an ASB when I saw him at first, he's very refined for a Morgan, especially one of his age! and those ears! those are ASB ears in my book lol. I like it though, it adds his own little bit of flare to him :)
drumrunner, you are correct that the majority of Morgan are taught to stand 'parked out' when they are displayed. I was trying to get him to stand a bit more square,but the ground does slope the tiniest bit down behind him, I'll see if I can snap a shot of him on the concrete barn isle to help later.
thanks for all the compliments guys! I can't wait to see how his overall physique changes once we start really working on his stretching and bending exercises under saddle :) I'd love to see that topline fill in just a tad more to help with those withers too :)
