Just curious about my red dun gelding:) photos and pedigree inc

just wanted to do this for fun, no real reason.
Here are photos of his pedigree & of my baby boy.
One question, im told he has pig eyes? A distinct trait of two eyed jack, what is this? Im not sure I see it.







This one for his eyes...


Here is is pedigree and registration:




Thank you!

Pig eyes just means his eyes look small for the size of his head.

He has a lot of Two Eyed Jack line breeding. The photos are not good for critique but I like the look of him (what I can see).

yeah he does, a whole bunch of it. Nearly all of his papers are champions too, one or two died before that unfortunately but I got him for 1,000 from a guy who lives in town, and I found out his brother sold for 6,800 at the pitzer ranch! Not that any of it really matters, but im always interested by that kind of stuff. But yeah id like to think he's got pretty good papers, others would beg to differ and that's okay as well. He doesnt have foundation papers though, that would have been a nice touch. Lol

And thank you, I just wondered what people though about his structure and all, I really never asked to have a horse critiqued before so I didnt know what photos to use lol I ride pleasure for now and occasionally help my friends with cattle, sorting, moving, pairing etc and havent really cared or needed to have him judged before lol just interesting to know what others think of him lol

He certainly looks like a Two Eyed Jack! I owned one and they have a very similar look. He does have small eyes compared to the size of his head, but they are placed well...so I would not call him pig eyed. I'd like to see a true confo shot of him, because there are some things I see I like...then some (like the length of his neck) not so much.

That was the best I could do, he isnt much for standing still and as soon as I went in there he just wanted to follow me.

I like this guy alot....he shows tremendous balance from front to back. His neck looks better in this pic, has the right length for his body. He's stocky and carrying the same weight front and back when you compare his hip and his front end, super nice set to his hock, his cannons match as well as his pasterns with their length and angle. His pasterns are a tad on the short side, but it matches him and what is going on with the rest of his body. He does have a smaller eye....but he has the classic large jowl Two Eyed Jack head.
