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.
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.
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!
