I think I remember there being a conversation about this, I guess I'll have to go do some snooping...

If you find anything let me know! Haha

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

He's one heck of a big stout guy, isn't he? His shoulder is a touch upright but other than that, I like what I see. His back is nice and short, which will allow him to turn around quick for his size. He appears to have good angle in his hocks and he's got some good bone on him.

In that one picture where you can somewhat see his front legs from the front, it appears like he might be slightly pigeon toed, but that could just be the way he was standing coupled with the lack of hoof care making it look that way. I'd certainly rule that out before I did anything though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks!

It's really hard to tell from the pictures, especially since there are none showing the whole foot on even ground, and the one showing his hoof he's in bad need of a trim. But I'm wondering if he is a little club footed in his fronts. Even if he's not I don't like the look of his pasterns and would be concerned about him developing navicular in the future.

I don't know very much about conformation, but I do like this fellow. He's super solid looking and looks like he would be a real workhorse (when he's not eating or napping - which is what my QH's do 95% of the time). :)
