    Question Critique Possible QH Purchase

    Hey all~ I'm in the process of trading my mare for this gelding. He's a Youth Halter Champ and I think he's nice looking but I want to know what YOU think. photo.jpg

    Well he's pretty, except he toes out in all four feet and is sickle hocked. Something about his hooves worry me but I can't see them very well. I'd also like to see less upright, short pasterns. I wonder how he achieved championship status. Is this what I hear about all the time, with halter horses? Maybe they are a little more lenient, with youth showing.

    He looks very nice, but I agree with Feathered Feet, his hooves are a bit odd.

    Seems to me like his front half and back half don't match. I can't put my finger on why though. Maybe its his steep withers that are throwing me off?

    I'd pass him up just because of those feet though. I won't touch a QH with tooth pick legs.

    Thank you!
    Can you post some conformation photos for us? I would love to give you a good critique, but will only do it if you can get us some good photos

    There's something not quite right about him. I can't quite put my finger on it.
    He is sickle hocked, but not too badly.
    His front and back end just don't match. I think that's why he looks not quite right to me.

    Thanks :)

    Unfortunately, some of the halter judges like the upright pasterns. I have another Paint gelding with the same pasterns and he was popular in halter shows. I personally don't like them. I will get some additional pictures when I go out to try him. He's currently owned by a farrier, so I hope his hooves look better in person. Thanks for the feedback!

    The feet look short and with under run heels.. at least from what I can see.

    His legs look a bit twiggy but other than that he has a nice short body with a big booty.

    Which horse are you trading for him?

    I don't know why everyone hates his feet-- he's got really nice bare feet!

    A little sickled but his overall balance is nice.
