    He has the hocks only a gaited mother would love...LOL! Is he a registered TWH and/or SSH? He is very flashy - people will be jealous of you for sure!

    Gaited horses are a little bit different to judge - they should still fit together nicely - all parts working together, and your guy looks good. His back is a bit long BUT that's ok on the gaited guys b/c it offsets their longer hocks (which are almost always seen as a horse camping under too much on gaited horses) - otherwise he would be hitting himself to the point he would be dangerous. TWH's do a decent running walk when their overstride (back hoof print oversteps the front) by a good 14 inches or so.

    To me, he looks like his breed dictates. Lanky, good angles, slightly sloped hip, a bit of a roman nose and a long neck that will counterbalance his swing once his picks up speed. Even with 75 more lbs on him, he will still look like a lanky greyhound with miles and miles of legs. He is supposed to. I think he is lovely!

    Do you have any movement shots of him? I would pay money for him if I was horse shopping!

    I have a TWH as well. I would love to "muscle" him up some more too. But like others mentioned...they are made more "lanky" than most. But I love the ride!

    Nice walker. I don't see any glaring faults. As others stated, TWH hocks are shaped diff than other breeds as most gatied horses are not shaped like a TB or Quarter . He will be very striking with some more groceries. Pretty boy

    I love me some walkers He is gorgeous and put together nicely. But I must say, I am offended by that awful hair cut. I'm glad to hear you're letting it grow out. A friend of mine made that mistake once and I teased her for months by calling her gelding "Moe" from The Three Stooges. He looked absolutely ridiculous.
