This is the 'fit' ransom, he's actually made quite the transformation from when I first got him :)

His back-end looks like a completely different (and bulkier) horse then what his front-end is.

There's something about his neck in that first picture that I don't quite like...
I don't think his back end looks bulkier than the rest. His chest is very bulky as well IMO

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Well...he needs a jowl strap to tone his throat.

And a sweat hood that goes back over his withers.

Sure...you could sweat him while riding.

Just when you are done, let him stand with the hood on for at least a hour.

With a little imagination I can see 3 thirds.

Hip, middle, shoulder and forward.

That is the start of something I will take a second look at.

Then his neck and head......needs a little work...but, it is there.

Nice big well set eye.

Not a lot of length from the eye to to nose but, still one fault.
This is esay to fix with the right show halter.
