Kid, a 14 year old unregistered QH. This was taken while lining them up for a trim, so his hooves are pretty well-grown. Kid's currently being used as a learning horse for me to perfect everything and as my niece's beginner horse.
Disclaimer: I'm not great at conformations, but I'm learning! :)
Here's what I think I see. At first glance, what stands out is that he seems sickle-hocked, and I don't like how short his pasterns are. His feet also seem small for his size.
Looking at the rest of him, he seems a tad downhill in build with a steep-ish shoulder. I also wish he had more muscling on his hindquarters, as they do not seem proportionate to his body for a QH. There is something about his neck too, but I don't know enough to say what--probably muscling.
I do have a question for others who look at this photo-- why is it that some horses (such as this sweet boy) have ball-looking fetlocks? Does that have to do with his short pasterns/being a QH?
He looks older than 16 to me. By his body I would judge him 20ish, but then again , he could have been used hard , which does age them.
He is not standing square so its hard to tell about his hind legs. He needs a better trim, no heels. He needs a few more groceries , he is not bad overall, looks like a sturdy horse. His has kinda large joints but then again he could be a tad arthritic, which does change some of the muscling etc.
