He has a decent shoulder on him. Nice and big with plenty of depth through the girth.
Neck set is not bad either
Stands slightly under himself and his pasterns could be a bit more upright
Back is borderline on the long side
Small but nice hindquarters
Hard to tell from those photos, but possibly just a tad sickle-hocked but overall a fairly decently built horse ;)

Something about his right rear hock bothers me. I don't know if it's swollen or what.

And for some weird reason I want to kiss his ears.

Good little horse.

Need better photos. I, for the life of me, cannot understand why anyone would post a horse for sale photo with the hind feet on soft ground with the toes pointed nearly straight down... it is impossible to say what his hind leg angles are.

He looks sturdy and he inherited the lad back shoulder of the Morgan and the neck set. Withers carry way into the back.. not sure if that will be a saddle fit problem.

Need Better photos!!!

Love this cross! It seems to be the best of both worlds; sturdy, good mind and willing to work. I am a huge advocate of having a pre purchase exam. No one has a better eye than an equine vet. Hope it works out for you!

Where did you get that he is for sale? I see nothing about that at all. I do agree that folks post some funky pictures and want critiques-especially with all the winter woolies.......I sure would not like if someone posted a pic of me in my jammies having just rolled out of bed-and curlers to boot.....that is what it reminds me of.

I'm bias on this specific cross..They all seem to have a very similar build and they really do have the best of both breeds (imo). While Luck didnt have the greatest mind beginner wise, she definitely knew how to please even when she didnt like it and always put 110% into anything I asked.

I can't say if his hocks are awkward, but I know Luck had VERY thick hocks which almost looked swollen if you hadnt seen her a few times before. I liked the large hocks because I was hoping to get her into amateur reining while I was leasing her, as well as continue in gaming. Not sure if I was right about the reason why, but it always made me feel better that she seemed to have strong hocks (reining and games) that would hold up.
