Critique Soda

Just for fun, it's been probably 3 years or so since I've had him critiqued. 11 yr old 15'3 hand, 1350lb QH gelding. Right now we just trail ride and play around. Some magical day when I get a horse trailer we'll probably dabble in a little bit of everything.

No worries about hurting my feelings, he's my boy and I'm pretty aware of his flaws, frankly the mental ones are more annoying than any structural ones!

I'm really sorry for hi-jacking the thread - but where do those stripes come from?

They come from the dun gene. Primitive markings, the zebra stripes, dorsal stripe, count shading on withers etc.

As for Soda...

I don't see any glaring faults, but I am no professional.
- Steep croup

He isn't square so I'm having a difficult time seeing what his back legs do.
Front legs look since and straight.
I like his shoulder and neck.
And he has a nice hindend.
