I would like to get some opinions about my boy's confirmation. He is a 15.3 hand 17 year old. I am currently trying to work on the muscle atrophy behind his shoulders and generally muscle him up everywhere. These pics were taken last spring (when he wasn't a whooly mammoth) AND when he was actually CLEAN! Thanks!
I personally like his shoulder and he has good depth through the chest
Neck, as with his topline does need muscle as you have noted
Back is just a little long
Long cannons and he appears to be back at the knee
I don't mind the overall shape of his hindquarters and even his back legs seem alright
Looks like a wire or rope burn on his left front pastern. .
That wasn't a rope burn or anything...I had an "anklet" on him that was a gift from a friend who is Wiccan. The gemstones were supposed to help him blend in with the new horses at the barn. Thanks for the input on confirmation!
Any more opinions? Here's another pic from the other side...He seems to be too much "under" himself in the back end in the photo, but he had just stepped back with his front end to see what I was doing. I'm so glad I let him mane grow out from how it was cut when I first got him. The second pic shows that anklet that someone thought was a wire or rope burn...
