Looks like a typical hay belly to me?

He looks like a typical weedy yearling.

A little thin for my liking, but I'm comparing him to my yearling.

When you ask for a critique, you will get honesty. We don't hold back on the truth and are not going to pet you on the head and say he is perfect looking when he isn't.

You should see what I say about my own horse. I love her to death and she is very athletic and talented. But far from perfect. She is a bit toed out in the front, very narrow in the chest and lateral at the canter. I could go on. But my point is, I am not silly enough to think there is nothing wrong.

I can tell you for sure he is in the clear. I have even had a vet come out. The horses in my barn have the lowest egg counts in my area.

How much does your yearling weigh? My gelding is 550 lbs, I've been following a growth chart. It must not be too accurate since I have had a few people say he looks thin

That's why I tried to keep my comments to asking about his belly.

I find him very unfortunate looking at the moment.
