    Draft X Gelding

    What do you think of this horse's conformation? I know it's not the best pic but it's what I was given. He's a 8 year old draft cross gelding.

    Its really hard to say anything with the angle of the picture, but I do like his nice straight legs. His shoulder is very straight though, which may make for a choppy ride. Thick, drafty head and neck, shallow heart girth considering his size. All in all a pretty typical 'clunky' draft x that was bred for color, but that doesn't mean he can't make a nice play date or trail horse. Are they eating corn in the picture?

    Overall seems like a pretty nice horse, no major glaring faults.

    He looks like a pretty typey draft x. His shoulder is a bit upright, he's a touch long through the back, and he appears to be seriously lacking in muscle along his topline.

    Other than that, he looks like a sweetie. Do you know his training history?
