He's a gorgeous color!
I like him, good neck.
Decent back, maybe a steepish shoulder.
Steep croup, maybe butt high?
Kinda course head.
Nice legs :) awesome color!
I'd have a horse like that in my barn!

P.s. I'm not too good at judging shoulder angle lol. But I love how his neck ties in too

Thanks everyone. We were working on standing square. So much fun when you're alone and it's windy.

I did notice in these pics that he appears to be a bit butt high, though I haven't noticed it in person. I'm not really sure on the shoulder thing, not great with that either. He does have very smooth gaits, which I've heard is not the case with a steep shoulder, but not sure..

Any opinions on how he'd do as a jumper? Or a barrel racer? Dressage? I'm interested in all of them so just curious.

As a barrel racer myself, I can see him doing very well in it. He has a great hindend which is where your power comes from. I think with the proper training, he could go far.

Oh, he is so cute! He is a tad butt high, and as other have mentioned; steep croup, nice neck, and nice legs. Well, actually his legs are insanely cute Very beautiful horse! I see him doing well in jumping, but Im no expert at conformation.

Now, you know the only thing that bugs me about Mr. Sodehr is that he's a bit light on bone in his legs and his feet are smaller than I would like to see on a horse his size.

Other than that, I love him and I see absolutely no reason why he couldn't do just about anything you set your mind to. His body is perfect for an all around performance horse.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

They're all lying to you. He's the ugliest piece of horseflesh I've ever seen. I dont know how you put up with looking at him every day! And I bet he's braindead too.

That being said, I think you should sell him to me for $5 ;) you know, to lessen your burden and all...

Thanks everyone!

Smrobs, I was looking at some older pics the other day and realized how much he has matured since I bought him. Still light on the bone in his legs and has small feet, but he has really filled out since those first couple of years.

Endiku... He actually is a little braindead.. At least when he gets scared, he's less than intelligent. He's a good horse overall and I wouldn't part with him for anything.
