    Critique Sarge

    I'm just curious what you all have to say about Sargie. This was taken last year.



    Thanks!

    I like him! I like the amount of bone he has on him (this coming from a half-draft owner who likes A LOT of bone lol).

    His neck is a little short and thick, but then again, so is my boy's. His neck ties in a little bit high on his chest and he's a wee bit pigeon-breasted, but nothing horrible.

    He's a tab bit over at the knee, but again, nothing major. I love the length and slope of his pasterns!

    His back is nice and short, with good depth through his heart girth. His croup is a little steep, but nothing horrible.

    Can't tell if his back is a bit roached or if he just needs more muscling along his topline.

    I like his hind end a lot. His hocks are nice and low. His angles are all good. He looks to have some power back there.

    Is he a QH?

    Thanks so much for the response! I've had others critique him and the general idea I got is that he's nothing too special but he's not bad either. Haha.

    He was sold to us as a quarter horse but I think there could be something else in him as well as he was just an accident. Everyone has their opinions on what they think he is. Haha

    He doesn't have the absolute prettiest head, which I know some people think is a "fault," but it doesn't bother me. He's a good-looking horse. Looks like he uses well.

    He has a rather upright , short shoulder but the rest of him looks really nice. He does seem to have good bone. His back hooves seem really low in the heels.

    Thanks! I noticed his hooves too haha. This was last year though so he's fine now. I think he'd gone a while without a farrier in this picture. He has the best feet of any horse I've ever met. Never been lame a day in his life.

    Looks fairly balanced. Looks quarter to me ! If not quarter then I would guess
    Lippett morgan . ( they are heavier than the morgans that look like arab x)
    Has the quarter behind and like the old time quarters has the heavy neck ;)

    Exactly what's been said! I really like him, and the three breeds that I would guess are quarter horse, thoroughbred, and morgan.
    For the record, I like his head, I don't think it's bad looking at all- it's handsome and masculine. :)

    Haha, yes tb and morgan are the ones we've considered as well. He looks very quarter horse in this picture but when you see him in real life and watch him move, he doesn't look full QH.

    Thanks for your critiques. I need to go look up all these terms. I'm horrible with conformation and I need to increase my knowledge.
