    Critique Roux?

    I would love y'alls input on my boy! I hope the pics are ok enough. I know he isn't standing perfect. These were taken the day I got him.

    I can't do a critique (yet!!) for my life, but gosh, his coloring is absolutely stunning. Like seriously. I have never seen anything like it, but wow!!!

    Pics straight on from the side are best but from those I can still see a few things.

    (Love that liver flaxen coloring!)

    I make no claims to be an expert by any means either! His shoulder looks to be on the 'straight' side of the spectrum, his back looks a little weak and maybe a bit long in a few pictures. It looks like he's a bit out of shape, with more muscling I think his neck would look much better (he looks slightly ewe necked in these pictures). I'm not sure if it's the way he's standing or not but it looks like he toes out a bit too, especially in the hind end.

    He has a correct hind leg though it is not posed well. Really nice bone. Average shoulder and a good heart girth. I would like a lower wither and a better tie in fron the neck to the wither and the wither to the back. He may be a challenge to fit a saddle to. His coupling is a bit long. His head looks a little coarse and drafty (but you don't ride the head!!!).

    Nice horse.

    Thanks for your input! :) He is a really wide horse, I am hoping that will be good for roping soon! His head doesn't photograph well because of all the white but you are right his head is huge.

    My western saddle fits him really well but my English less so. Those pictures are from the day I got him. I lunged him with my English saddle last week and here is a pic from then.

    A year ago I would have said I would have never bought a horse like this. I all ways go for TBs!
