Wink Quarter Horse Gelding

Fritz is my rising 9 year old QH gelding that I bought two years ago. I've never really asked anyone about his conformation. In this photo (Sept 6, 2013) I hadn't started riding lessons yet so he has lost some fat and gained muscle.

Nope, links to FB don't show up.

Try uploading the pic to Photobucket or a similar hosting site and then copying and pasting the [IMG] code into the body of your post/text on here.

Not a great shot for conformation. He seems to have a long back though, but it could be because the angle of the picture though.

He looks nice though, I'm sure I wouldn't have a problem putting him in my barn, haha.

It works!

I think his back looks long because of the slight angle he's standing at to the camera.

Really, I don't see anything glaring about him that makes me go "Eep!" He's a little tied in behind the knee, but not too bad.

Not sure when knee you are reffering to but I forgot to mention that the first summer I got him (2012), going into winter he got into a fight with our (at the time) lead mare. We were stupid and put Fritz in one half of the pasture with a barbed wire fence between them. His back right knee has a scar/scab still on it, it was never really an issue for him to walk/work on though.
