But around here we have a weanling halter class, and i've had people say he has a good conformation and some say a horrible one. That's why I'd like a bit of help before I put him in one so I and him don't look like complete fools ... if you know what I mean. It'd be mine and his first time showing... And when he sheds out I will surely post BETTER photos ha, the barn lights are not so great an my phone camera is excellent either.
How exciting! Haha, there's plenty of time to find his discipline- who knows, he might be a jack of all trades. I have a 6 year old that I still don't quite know what direction to take in, although maybe your boy will be easier! Looking at his bloodlines might help you out, too.
And a weanling class sounds like a great idea, the experience can't hurt him- and don't worry about what other people say about his conformation, he's just a baby, they're fools to be judging him entirely on what he looks like at 6 months. My suggestion would be to enter the weanling class and have fun, don't worry about what others think about his conformation. I don't show halter but I think at low levels it matters more how well your horse is groomed and behaves, too. Maybe you can ask someone on here who knows more about halter than me, there are lots of knowledgeable users.
I can't wait to see pictures when he sheds out!
-edit- I meant that the people who the OP was saying told her that he either had great or horrible conformation are fools, I just realized that that could have been taken as me calling the people on this thread fools. I wasn't, haha. I agree with what has been said. :)
