    Please Critique my stallion.

    This is Ricky my 10 year old Shetland stallion, he has only been shown twice won Champion Shetland the first time and Reserve champion the second. He has a supurb pedigree over flowing with famous ponies. He has the best temprement I have ever found on any equine and is as quite as can be.

    I think he is flawless otherwise I wouldn't have baught him, so I would like to see what other people see as I am very bias. Please bare in mind he is a very well built British shetland in most of the photos he isn't over weight.

    Honestly all of that fuzzy hair and and jet black, thick coat is making me go cross eyed and I can't tell much at all. Maybe you can braid it and take some conformation shots?

    Can't really get any better photos of him as I am really the only person in the house that can take a half deasent photo of him and he always tries to come over to me.

    He looks obese to me... I'm not an expert on Shetland ponies but he looks bigger than 'well built'.

    Nope you can feel his ribs with out much pressing, he meant to have a little fat as he is a native pony as it is part of what keeps him warm, but he is about right for this time of year.

    He looks like he is a bit butt high , thick throat latch, no neck/ really thick neck which makes him look really obese but he looks like he has a cute head and a nice little booty on him.

    ITA - plus, either it's just his butt-highedness or he has a wonky back -and the curve to his back makes the drop of his belly look more pronounced. - specifically the 4th, 6th and 8th photos (if I counted right - the last one and every other on the way up from the bottom). When he has his hind parked out behind him it reduces that appearance, but when standing properly up under himself it's rather pronounced.

    Ah, the way mac explained it makes a bit more sense. He still looks fat to me but like I said, not an expert ;D I have a 'shetland' who is quite dainty looking. Granted she was an auction pony and 'shetland' can mean a lot of things without registration.

    Old-style Shetlands vary greatly from the new-type ones. I had a more modern-type Shetland out of the WCF lines that was also built much daintier. You really can't compare the two types

    Rbarlo, out of curiousity, what are his lines like?

    That will be because yours will be an American Shetland where as mine are British.
