Question Tell me what you think of his legs please :)

Have not really gotten muich feed back on Oliver's legs and would like to hear the harsh truth, this is hard for me cause my last mare had extreme weakness, long pasterns, her cannons where anything but straight but bless her heart she did everything I asked for and really tried.

Oliver is barefoot, he just had his feet trimed on Monday, so I will get current pictures of him today and post them as soon as I can, the pictures are from late Novemeber.

Thanks

His legs look great. Nice feet, too. If you want nitpicky critisism, he is a bit weak in the gaskin and his canon bones are not real short (but that's his breed type, I think)

Thanks Tiny :)

I find his Cannon bones shorter to what I am used to in the bigger horses, when I wrap polos I seem to have extra and makes it look bulgy if I am not really paying attention, but I have 2 sets of polos that I really like, they are thinner and maybe alittler shorter then normal so they work well :)

well, maybe it's because I see SO many QH's posted here, and they tend to have really short canons. I think Olliver's built very nicely. Are you worried about him in some way? He's a really nice horse and if he fell into my lap I would be starstruck dazed with good fortune.

No not worried at all, when he got vetted he flexed a 0 on all his legs, never been lame or even sore in the 5 months I have had him and with his previous owner and trainer who started him!

Really just courius cause I havnt gotten alot of really detailed in depth comments on his build so throwing these pictures out to see what I get :)

Oliver's legs are great! Good angles in both front and rear legs. They appear strong and balanced. He also has beautiful hooves:)

a little long in the cannon bones, but great structure, nice an straight with decent angles, gaskin could be a little deeper but not a big deal
