Talking QH Conformation

As some of you may know I'm training my hay dealer's horse for him in trade of hay; well he arrived today!!! I'll get better conformation pictures tomorrow.

Phone Pictures + Night Time = Cr*ppy Pictures

























*I'm aware his feet need to be done, and he's a bit chunky. LOL. But he's been out of work for the past year.

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

I'm not an expert at horse conformation by any means (I'm critiquing based on what I've learned from this forum so far), but it looks to me like his rump is a bit high and his back dips too much. But then again, it could be due to his high rump. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong! Other than that, he doesn't appear to look too bad to me.

Good luck with his training!

These are some pretty crappy pictures! Perhaps we should wait to critique the better pictures when you get them.

Unfortunately, there's practically nothing we can tell from those shots. Subbing so I can give you a critique with better photos.

I know, they looked a lot better on my phone when I uploaded them. :/

Oh, and he looks REALLY but high because of the angle in the picture when he was in the barn. If you look at the first picture he isn't actually that bad. LOL.

If you want, I can delete this thread and let you try again? With better pictures. Other wise I think you'll get a lot of people saying they need better pictures to critique, 'cause I sure do.

It's not the crappy pictures he really has no withers. LOL. I think something happened to him because you can't even feel the bone in the middle...? You feel up his wither and its there, hit the middle and there's a HUGE dip (feels like nothing is there) and then there is wither again. He's been checked by a vet and he says everything is fine he's just got really weird withers. His owner has had him since he was 3years too.

I'm uploading better pictures (in a different thread because this one is getting deleted) in a few hours; would love your critique then! Even though he isn't the most eye pleasing guy in the pasture. LOL.
