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

Thank you!

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?
