I think that he's over at the knee because he desperately needs a trim, not due to terrible conformation. IMO, he's not too straight in the back pastern, though. I've definitely seen a lot worse. I think he might be slightly straighter than average, but not to a problematic degree. Might warrant a little extra attention during a PPE, but not a deal breaker IMO unless the vet finds something. I'm not a conformation expert, though.

We are going to record him tonight, hopefully he want sore from that trim. We are taking him up to an arena. Also guys, his breathing is audible at a trot or love even a gallop, but its very clear sounding. So is he just a loud breather?

I don't think he's anywhere near purebred. Bring a vet with out to make sure. He does look somewhat off, but I'm not sure why.

Sure is nice when folks read the whole thread before they post, huh, Aesthetic?

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/

You have to love it, I mean...Come on guys. Anyways, have you seen my martingale form in horse training? I was wondering if you have answers since people can only tell me how to train my horse and not answer my question...

My guy looks more like a TB than a QH but the former owner still swears that he's full QH.. QHs come in all shapes and sizes!

Is he in shape or has he gone a little while without any work? Does it seem like he's breathing hard or just loud?

He's been rode but not worked. He's breathing loud and it sounds hard, but he isn't breathing that hard in reality.

oh and around here we say collapsed but in reality it's a type of paralysis. Sorry can't be much of help, I've only met a few and only one had the surgery to correct the paralyzed portion of his larynx.. but I just know they made a ton of noise!
