Green Broke
Pictures are kind of small, but from what I can see, he has a rather upright shoulder but front legs look good.
Bum high at this stage in his development
I really like his hindquarters
Back legs may be a touch on the posty side

Why is it people ask for conformation on growing horses especially ones under 2 years old. Most are at the lanky stage and your not going to get a good picture of their actual conformation at growing age. One day they may be bum high 5 days later bum low. Head can be bigger then body then vice versa. To me judging a baby can make some think their filly or colt is lacking quality. ( sorry a bit tired today to sound specific lol ) He is cute though. JMHO

What is his HYPP status?

Agree that it is hard to tell much; he has an upright shoulder (not bad, he will just have an upright gait more so than, say, a WP horse), and legs look camped out and posty. Also not a fan of how his neck ties in and is cresty.

I would wait a while to see how he fills out - it is hard to pinpoint much at this point and that could be discouraging. He could grow into a very well-constructed boy.


ETA: I see he is double Impressive bred. If he is anything but HYPP N/N, I would geld him. He doesn't trace to Poco lines so he should be fine for HERDA. Get him tested ASAP if you haven't already, especially since he has Impressive still on the paper (his great grandsire on dam's side I believe, if I remember right).

He is tested and confirmed N/N, on his papers.

It is so difficult to keep it all straight isn't it, especially when his HYPP status changes form being told about it by a broker, and actually having it on his papers.

It will be nice to see some bigger pics of him, but sure looks like he is going to be a cute gelding

AQHA now puts HYPP status on registration papers, including his papers which have now been received....not that its any of your business.
