He looks like he has a kind eye but as indicted, if built downhill it can lead to issues while jumping...tripping after the jump is common as they tend to overbalance.
I think he could use more weight honestly. And a good farrier. |
There are all shapes and sizes of Quarter horses, he's probably on the racing side of the breed.
I agree he needs more weight, I was just a bit confused by the different responses I have gotten in person. It's good though that now I am getting some definite answers. He does indeed have long feet in the picture as it was taken a couple days ago. I do think that he is base narrow, is that considered a fault for a QH?
