Here's Moose (PIC HEAVY)

Ok so here's my guy Moose if any of these pictures are inadequite please let me know and I will try to get better pictures in the morning.
Name: Moose
Gender: Gelding
Breed: Appaloosa
Age: 6
Height: 15.1/15.2?
Discipline: Western Pleasure, Barrel racing/Gymkhanas, Trail horse.

He was alot skinner when I first got him 3 weeks ago and he is starting to gain alot of weight, he also has barely any muscle so that we are working on. Right now he has a big fat belly because he's on pasture 24/7 with a huge round bale. As for the leg shots I know his front feet look like pancakes. My farrier did not do them yet as they were trimmed 2 days before I bought him and I am fully aware that they are just plain ugly. Also in the first picture of his front legs he is standing weird but it gives a better picture of his legs overall. The second picture of his legs is alot better.
So that being said tear him apart! And if I left anything out and what not please feel free to let me know.
Also- I could not for the life of me get a decent picture with his legs square or without him resting on one of his back legs. So I do appologize and if you're unable to do a critique with the pics I'll try to get better one in the morning.

From the pictures, he looks like he's a bit bow-legged. It could be the angle or the way he's standing, though.
He's absolutely adorable! Good luck with him! :)

He's not exactly built for speed or snap, but he is built for soundness. I bet he'd be more of an endurance horse than a race horse. Very nice straight legs in front. I could perhaps use a little more angle to the shoulder. Honestly there's not much not to like, except that he's a leaner sort of horse than I would pick for your chosen disciplines.

This lady at my barn swares he is half thoroughbred. He still has alot of muscle and weight to gain. We aren't looking to get too serious with any discipline. I look to do everything:)

I agree with Bubba - longish muscle tie-ins and appears to have a lower percentage of fast twitch muscle, with a nice deep chest - built more for endurance than performance, although Appys are pretty versatile. He could have some TB in him, although his muscle composition is more Arab like than TB like...

Keep in mind he came from Camelot and has almost no muscle what so ever. I agree he is more Arab like. But looks great under western tack. I'm not looking to do any real hard barrel racing. Just some local shows. He's such a sweet boy.

I like him :)

He is so so so cute. I'm not the best at critique but I bet he will be a lot of fun. Nothing stands out to me that could cause him to have soundness issues so that's good!

You shoudl try endurance. I have a friend who does endurance with her appy.
