    Critique TB

    So this is my 16 month old TB. Now 15 hands and around 700lbs. He has come a long way and I think he looks so much better than when I adopted him at 10 months.
    I don't know much about conformation, so just wondering what you think about his build so far. Is it possible to tell what disciplne he would excel at?
    I've attached a before pic (at 9 months) and some from this past week
    I know they're not the best pics for confo, but any information would be great:)

    I'm not familiar with the growth spurts of yearlings and 2yo TB's, so to say he looks built downhill is probably not accurate. I like his topline and his shoulder seems okay, but he seems too straight behind. You know how to groom him up nicely!

    Wow pasterns! Very upright and looong. Long cannons as well. He is built downhill of course, but has lots of growing to do still =) I like his back although its a tad long and he doesn't seem to have the shark fin withers most TB have. I like his hip as well, very nice. His hock placement is a bit high as well. He looks tons better from when you adopted him. Good job! Would love to see more pictures as he matures.

    He's going through another spurt so hopefully then he'll start to level out. His hind end just won't stop growing :P I've always wondered about his withers, they are almost non existent compared to other tb's I have seen lol.

    It almost looks like he could have mutton withers, but I say lets let him grow more before I pick anymore. He could end up looking like a totally different horse! He already does from the before and after pics already =P

    I will say he is very breedy. I love his hind quarters and hind leg. Very nice. I do not like that he looks quite tied in at the knee on those front legs. The rest will come with growth.. like having withers.

    He also looks like he may be down hill when he gets all done. Time will tell. I think he may end up quite nice. What is his breeding?
