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.
thank you for your opinion, I always like to hear what other people have to say about my boy, whether it be good or bad its interesting to hear different views besides my own view of just loving him to pieces lol

Yeah I most of my photos, its hard to tell his shapes because his angles are different but now that I got a pretty good, and correct photo of him he looks alot better I must say. Some photos his neck looks short and weird lol. Lmao yes he does have the large T.E.J. Head lol

Thank you again!

Here's the TEJ I owned...the only pic I have scanned. This pic has to be 20+ years old. But your horse and mine were so similar in body.

oh yeah, I deffinately see a lot of similarities in the body style, and obviously color and markings too. My boy only has one one sock, a star, strip and snip but seems they all have something to the sort, atleast color wise for the most part! I actually am astounded by the similarities in my horse and your horses body structure.

^ Yep, I look for more pics and scan them. People will have differing opinions about TEJ horses. I know a bunch of time event folks that won't touch them with a ten foot pole, but they are awesome everyday versatile horses, especially with what you said you do with yours! The one I owned WAS a barrel race flunkie...he wanted to be a WP pleasure and trail horse...and he did that well.

agreed, especially about the timed events. They arent very fast when it comes to that, but they are great cowy horses and great workers and what I think just makes a great all around, like you said, versatile horse. But indeed if I was looking for speed, I wouldnt pick a TEJ either lol

Add me to those who like him a lot. Great balance and really good bone. His head is a tiny bit "clunky" looking. Now that's a real techinical term for you.

But being pig-eyed is just something that is esthetically not as pleasing;. Does not interfere with their serviceability as a horse.

My lease horse Zulu is a bit small of eye, but I think it's cute!

This horse would be considered pig-eyed.
