    Critique Pepper 11 yr old Sabino paint

    Critique Sonny's Butch Cassidy aka Pepper my 11 year old max sabino paint. Just curious about his confo and I thought I would use him as a tool to learn more about conformation. He is my playday horse so he is a little lean from a lot of exercise I changed his calorie intake so he should regain some of what he has lost. Thanks for your critiques if you want to view his pedigree here it is Sonnys Butch Cassidy Paint. Thanks for your critiques =-D

    I cannot contribute to confo, but are his eyes tattooed?

    I'm just learning myself but I'll give it a go.

    What I see if that he appears to toe out slightly in the front? May just be how he was standing.

    His whithers look a little high, and his back a little long.

    His hinquarters don't look very powerful to me, would like to see some more roundness.

    Should looks good. Could use some neck muscle but it ties in alright there.

    Would love to hear what someone else has to say too. XD

    He is on uneven ground where his hind quarters are there was a bit of a lump in the ground it's not very flat where they are at eastern Oklahoma is very hilly. Also thank you for your critique.

    His topline seems to be lacking. I'd like to see him after a few weeks on topline exercises.

    Yeah actually I've been wanting to work on that. Hill work increases top line correct? Anything else I can do to improve that? He was lame for a year do to a hoof injury and he lost a ton of muscling he doesn't look like he used to. I'm trying to get him back in shape I hoping by next year he will be closer to what he was before the injury.

    Hill work will only work if he is in a rounded frame. Also, backing in a rounded frame (that means very little hand contact, all leg) will help.
