Exclamation Quarter horse conformation.

[IMG]l[/IMG]

Hi everyone! I have a question involving conformation. I have. 3 year old aqha gelding, and I really like his conformation, but latley I just feel like maybe it's not as good as a "nice" 3 year olds should be. In the link above he is the horse in the first picture. And also he is in the last picture. He is the first horse in the lineup. Dark bay with a star and snip. Solid legs. I would like you to either rate his conformation, or critique the issues you have with it. He is 15.3 and I am hoping he will fill out more but my trainer says not. What do you think?

Looks like a nice horse!

I can't tell conformation on those kinds of pictures. But at 3 usually they will fill out. Is his dam a Thoroughbred?

His dam is not thoroughbred. The last picture is better he's squared...his grandpa is Zippo Pine Bar tho.

He looks like a sweetie, but like AQHAGirl said, it's impossible to judge anything about his conformation just from those pictures.

We'll need pictures of his full body, square from each side, straight from the front where both legs are entirely visible, and straight from the back where his entire hind end is visible. He'll need to be standing square on flat ground like a road/driveway...preferably something without grass as grass will hide his hooves and possibly pasterns, depending on how tall it is.

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/

This makes sense. I was just in need for answers and these were the only pictures I had. I will take some tomorrow and repost this.
