Critique Ross

Heres my new horse named ross he's 5 years old 16+hh AQHA. I got him for my 21st bday from my friend. I would like to hear what you guys think. This is the first time I have handled him :} I have owned him for to days and met him twice.

Wow, he's stunning!

There are a few things I noted, so I'll go ahead and just throw them out. His neck ties in pretty low. He is defiantly proportioned weird in the back- as if his wither placement should be further forward. Sickle hocked and his back pasterns seem pretty upright, while all of them seem a little too short. His croup is also very sloped which gives him a low set tail.

I like his top line other than the sloped croup. He has withers that carry nicely into his back and a very short back and strong coupling. His point of shoulder is low and his shoulder is a bit steep in addition to the things you have noted. Steep pasterns behind are not as serious as steep pasterns in front. Hinds carry 40% of the weight.. fronts 60%

I love this guy....everything about him. He's extremely well balanced, LOVE where his neck ties in, I find nothing wrong with where his withers are...pretty darn perfect for a pleasure horse to have a nice break at the wither and flatten the neck right out. Love the back length and deep heart girth, nice roomy hocks with a great set that line up pretty well with his knees. He may be a bit steep in the croup but he has a gorgeous hip so it all works well.

What a generous friend you have! ;D I don't do confo critiques (*cough* BecauseISuckAtThem *cough*) But just wanted to say that he's lovely! (:

All I see is a steep shoulder and maybe tied in at the knee a bit, but other than that he is lovely! Very good looking boy, has such a soft eye, bet he's a lover not a fighter lol
