    Same horse new critique

    I have posted this horse for critique before and you guys have been really helpful! But, now his winter clothes have been shaved off so some things are more or less apparent. What do you guys think? I know his show halter is big but he's too big for a yearling halter ): and so this is what I have to work with for now. His first halter show is this weekend, we have him entered in 2 and you and 2 year olds, I will post how he does after the show...even if it's poorly. It will be a good experience for him (:.

    Well he is young, but right now his neck looks a little out of proportion and he is bum high.
    His front end is decent with a nice shoulder and good straight legs. In the back he is a bit posty but with nice round hindquarters.

    His necks seems to need more muscling, and he is posty in the hind end. Also, his pasterns are pretty long, which makes his front end look odd. He might be a little under himself, too, but that could be due to the long pasterns. He sure is a pretty boy, though :)

    He's a cutie!! Are you going to show him in the halter he is wearing in these pics? If so, you may wish to just show him in a clean nylon halter. The judge will really mark you down for using this one. Just a suggestion.

    I agree, we're going to try and adjust that halter more or I will use a nylon halter... I'll post pictures of him in his nylon halter when I get home. He's right in between sizes so it's hard to get a halter that fits properly :/ especially when none of the tack shops near me sell show halters.

    I know the feeling. Our tack stores offer show halters, but they definitely mark everything up at least 200%. I think I ordered mine from Chicks Saddlery or maybe Horse.com and it was like $45. My horse of course grew out of it, like the next day, and the quality wasn't all that, but I felt it was worth it.

    What would you suggest to help with neck muscling? And is there a way to make his pasterns appear shorter for the show?

    And I ordered it from Schneiders (: but yearling size is too small and adult is too big; I couldn't find any 2 year old sizes ):

    It won't help you with this weekends show, but why don't you PM me with your address and I will send you my halter. It may fit, it may not. No problems, you can always use it on your significant other. LOL

    These are some of the photos I took of him yesterday, he has his blue halter on, which fits him much better than the show halter.
    (:
