    Well even if the OP is not appreciative I enjoyed reading the more in depth critique Elana, so thank you.

    Here is a bit more on this horse... more illustration if you will.

    The circles show the bulging underline of the neck from the low set and the ewe construction.

    Also note that while the trotting photos show just past the full reach of the front leg, the reach is limited by the shoulder and ewe neck.

    I tried to add this above.. but it was too late.
    In the trotting photos at liberty this horse naturally travels heavy on the front end. He has more contact with the ground with his front feet than his rear feet. In the bottom photo where he has his head up, and his back hollow, his hind feet are actually off the ground. Even though he appears up hill in this photo, he is stiff and he is traveling weight front. In the top and second photo it is better.. and in all three he has a hollow back.

    His hind legs actually have a nicer and longer reach than his front leg because he is better constructed behind (although a bit straight through the hock).

    Again. A nice horse but with faults that are shown really well in the photos.

    Thank you to the OP for posting this thread. It is great to illustrate what I say and these photos allow for that very nicely!

    Elana, thank you so much for that! You put it so well and really easy to understand! Loved the illustrations, they were excellent!

    I know my boy has some big faults- but I love him, and hopefully we'll do well! :) Thank you everyone for your comments, I have taken them all on-board.

    I hope no-one thought I was being snipey- I really wasn't meaning to. I appreciate every comment on this thread! ..also, sorry the pictures were so huge. LOL.
