Percheron Gelding

So here is my Percheron Gelding Riley. I always thought he was at least 18 hands. Util I measured him he is 17 hands. Lol And I thought he was 7 until I found baby pictures with a date. He is just turning 6! He will just be a trail buddy. He is going off in the spring for several months of training. And I know his feet are terrible (plus they look worse because he has mud stuck on his poor feet lol) After our farrier was hurt it has taken a long time to find one who will do drafts. But I found one, and he is coming next week.

So what do you think about his conformation?
Also what do you think about his weight? He came home from bording a little thin, but I think he looks pretty good now.

Bump. AnyOne else?

I think he looks pretty good! I think the back toes pointing out is fine since he is a draft horse. He has nice hindquarters! I don't know too much about drafts but he looks like a nice one!

Green Broke
Not a bad shoulder on him
Front legs look good, apart fromhis pasterns, which he appears to sit back on quite a bit
Back is a good length
Very sharp slope to the croup but nice, big, hunky hindquarters ;)
Back legs look good as well, apart,again, for the pasterns. He's definitely cowhocked

Thank you!
I have always loved his bum! I have lots of butt shots of him, and I swear he loves it ;)

Anyone who knows Drafts well do you think he is all Percheron? We bought him from the kill pen at 5 months old, so we were not 100% sure.

I'm pretty fluent in Draft :P I'd say he's all Percheron. He's a lovely one at that!

I am neither a confo or draft expert, but he looks like a gorgeous young boy! I can't wait to see more pictures of him as his training progresses. He looks nice and solid, but without too much extra weight or mass to slow him down.

I will def make a thread and post up dates after he go's! Hoping it will be sooner then spring. Its just getting the money all gathered up! May have to do some jumping with him in the can he jump :) Jumped clean over my fathers tractor when he was rolling a round bale in. He also jumped a 6 foot fence as a 2.5 year old, because the guy were I had him boarded at put him by himself and he saw his herd running the pasture.
