Rocky Mountain x Arabian

Here is my guy, Toofine, a 15 year old Half Arab! My pride and joy, but I never really have looked into his conformation. He has his wooly mammoth hair still on him (old pictures), but if new ones are needed I can take more. Since then, he has also thinned up quite a bit.. He had a fat winter belly in all these pictures.

I don't believe so, but my farrier says she seen him gait before. I can't really recognize if he does or not.. When I've let him go at a naturally fast "trot" he seems to smooth way out as a gaited horse would but I have no clue.

He looks cute, but none of these photos are that great for a conformation critique, as you are looking down on him and it distorts his proportions. Step back further and zoom in rather than standing very close and shooting downwards.

I assume he is fairly short or you are quite tall from the angle of the photos :)

I agree with Tryst. You must have the angle of your camera be straight on, not from above looking downward. Fact the horse and bend your knees until you camera is right in the middle of the horse's plane, perfectly perpendicular to it.

The horse looks, in these photos, to be overly bulky for the legbone and hoof it stands on.
