Thoughts on Confirmation of my boy

15 year old Standardbred Gelding

The picture is at a slight angle (check the fence line)...and he seems to bending his neck away a bit.

He is very well turned out. He is a bit over condition but halter horses usually are. A few extra pounds covers a lot of flaws!

He has a well set next on a steep shoulder. His hocks and knees are a bit far off the ground and he is built down hill and front end heavy. He withers carry back into a short back and a strong coupling to well rounded hind quarters. He is a bit straight through the stifle and hocks and his hind legs are noticeably longer (in an out of proportion way) than his fronts. He has good bone.

I cannot comment to his knees and legs as they are not defined in the photo.

Again, very nicely turned out.

Elana...the photo is angled a bit..I have never noticed his hind legs being longer..I will try to find a "straight" picture.

Ha.. MUCH better photo. He still has out of proportionately long hind legs and here you can see he has a bit of set to his hocks (a bit sickle). He also shoes here a steeper croup though not to the point of being a fault. He has good bone and is NOT tied in at the knee. He still has a steepish shoulder and his point of shoulder is set a little low.

Nice horse. Would not mind seeing if this one could do some fox Hunting.

I don't typically like Standardbreds but I really do like this guy. He is in top condition and his good traits are accented nicely in the pictures. He has his flaws that Elana already mentioned but I can't help but still really like him as a whole. I wouldn't mind having him in MY barn and I love his face. Definitely standardbred, but not the usual 'cinderblock' that I'm used to seeing.
