How's Jet Looking?

I know he's still growing so conformation isn't really that accurate and all. But so far what do you guys think? Lil Jet is 6 months old now. They grow so fast.







First saddle pad today!

I really like his low knees and hocks.. but I am not in love with his front legs.. especially his right front. He toes out which is common as a foal will splay his legs to eat grass and anything else on the ground.. wearing the inside of the hooves. His right front also appears to be growing a bit crooked.. almost twisted at the fetlock joint. This could be from uneven ground or the camera angle.

He looks like a little devil.. LOVE his look (not something you can put into words and usually not part of conformation).

Thanks alot! And I believe the twisting you are seeing is from the uneven ground. I had to take him out away from his momma where ge couldnt see her or he wouldn't sit still so we had to be on not the flatest of areas.

oh my he sure is a cutie!! I am sure the leg thing has factors such as uneven ground or camera angle, at first he looked a little off in the front legs, but my colt did for a little while as well until he took to some growing and it all evened out well. He does have nice low knees and hocks, good for athleticism. Hopefully he keeps his short back too! He is just adorable! :)

I like this little guy, he looks so "horsey". What are your plans for him? Barrel racing?
