Foal
Smile Please Critique Dakota-TWH

He is a 7 year old purebred Tennessee Walking Horse. Our trainer says he doesn't look like a normal Tennessee Walking Horse (but he has a gorgeous gait); and back 5 years ago my riding instructor at the time said the same thing and that his head was too big and he looked like he was malnourished as a foal (which recently I found out that that was true). I think he has grown into his head now though but still I would greatly appreciate different opinions on his conformation.

Sorry, the first 2 pictures are dusty. I don't have any better ones.

Nice looking horse but the pictures are not adequate for a critique. If you really want a critique, take the time to set your horse up properly, otherwise all you will get are "pretty horse" responses.

Agree with the above.
Also confused by "doesn't look like a normal twh"

He looks pretty walker-y to me, just based on these photos.

Edit:
Walkers generally have larger heads and take longer to mature. Five years ago, as a two year old, he was probably gangly and awkward looking. Rather common for the breed in my experience.

Foal
Sorry, I know. That's all I have and he's at the trainer's now so I can't take any better ones. But that's basically what I was wondering. I was just wanting to know if his head was normal size and if he looked like a TWH.

Woops, missed one. It's a little better.
