    I will post more when I get home. My phone wont let me. Ill pull him out and get his as square as I can. He is very impatient. And as for halter bred horses, they are bred for muscle mass and stright lines through joints. My family friend bred them. Theu are no where near the ideal riding horse. They are bred for looks. Work horses such as quarters or english horses like oldens or hanoverians are bred for strength and grace alone with speed. There are two totally different types of breeding. If you look in a judging book from an actual equine judging professional, halter horses are far off from what is considered ideal.

    This is the best I could get him square. Yes he's saddled, I forgot about the picture until after I saddled him but i'm looking mainly for legs. He does need his top line built up a lot too.

    He is a bit straight through the hocks and his stifle is a bit high. He looks like he really needs a farrier visit. The front hooves appear chipped and the right front (that you can see) is VERY steep.. almost clubby. He may be standing on a stone that raises his heels a bit.. but I don't think so. He is quite short in the pasterns.

    His rear is a bit light.

    I still like him. He does stand over a lot of ground so may be a bit long through the coupling.

    Nice horse. Get him a farrier appointment and keep after his feet.. he will be even nicer.

    Oh yee his eet were done before we bought him by somebody who had no idea what they were doing. Im working on building muscle with him, he is fresh and has not been rode in forever lol. He is standing funny, whrn I tighten his girth he gets pissy. Thanks Elana(:

    I don't see a major fault with his knees. He may be a tad sickle hocked others call it camped under ..
    He is a cute one. The right front.. may be a club foot or coon foot depends on what you call it,
    I would have him checked on that with the new farrier.. that foot appears to dish .. if so , the navicular and other bones in the hoof could be rotated.

    He isnt clubbed foot, I sent a pic to my farrier. He said whoever did his feet didnt trim the heel period. Yeah, he looks a wee sickle hocked. Im getting his feet done, apparently his feet are trimmed completely wrong. So he is coming out. Once he gets his feet done I will square him up and get them fixed.
