    There is a lot to like about your guy. Nice length and set of neck , well set withers, with a good slope to his shoulder. Back and loin are both long, but appear fairly strong. Very nice croup shape and really I like almost everything about his hind end (angles). He might be very slightly sickle hocked. From the front he is base narrow with an under developed chest. I would like more bone, especially on front legs. Right now he looks out of shape (saggy belly, no topline). I think he would be really stunning when in shape.

    I am curious - is he deaf? He seems to be holding his ears oddly in both photos.

    Would be useful to know his age and what you do with him.

    Thanks for your criqtue. No he isn't deaf he has always held his ears that way he's kind of the joke of the barn because of it lol. And he's 22 turning 23 and I do western pleasure in show, and pleasure arena and trail riding.

    Can he move them? It may be that he had an injury to them at some point. My TB filly holds her right ear exactly the same way (that's how it healed after being severely lacerated) but isn't deaf in the least. It would be pretty crazy is he had BOTH injured though, so maybe he's just a silly boy.

    Either way, he's absolutely gorgeous. I agree that he stands over a lot of ground, but he has nice coupling and good SI joint placement so I doubt that he'll really have many problem with it. He may have a tough time riding in frame though.

    We aren't exactly sure of his history. But yes he can move them and holds them like a normal horse would at times lol I think that's just what makes him unique. And we do western pleasure and pleasure riding I haven't tried getting him into frame but he is a nice little western pleasure horse we took 1st in the county (:

    Woah, just saw that he's 22. OBVIOUSLY that back didn't give him too much trouble! Wow, I would have never guessed he was getting up there in years! I'd say he's worth his weight in gold.
