Thanks a lot! As I knew these pictures were not perfect for a conformation critique, I wasn't even expecting it, but I might get better ones today, as I'm intrigued now.
What does a plain head mean conformation-wise?
He's a 7yo carriage type Latvian warmblood gelding. The other type is riding type, and they're much lighter in bone. His sire is one of the best carriage type LW studs in country, but his dam is a Hannoverian/Estonian Tori (also carriage type) mix. We do flatwork and trails, mostly, and light jumping once a week - a total of about 5hrs of work a week.
As for the hooves - I would love to get a better farrier, but there's almost no choice for a barefoot trim in my country. Most even have no clue, how to trim an unshod horse, and of those TWO who have, only one lives in a reasonable distance from me. So I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Posted via Mobile Device
