    Wanting confo critique of my blue roan.

    Duke is a 5 year old QH. I've been happy with him, but one of the girls at my barn was saying she thought his confo was all off. Wanted your opinions from these limited pics.

    From what I see this LONG legged, looks more like a tb in that department and he's thin (not like starving him but like his build lighter then an qh). Also his neck looks long. Its hard to tell from these pics though.but overall a cute horse :)

    He does need to add some weight. He's basically been in the pasture for the past year. The previous owners hadn't tried to bulk him up since they weren't riding him much. We have started working on that. The girl at our barn felt like his back was too long for his legs.

    He is light boned, but he's only five so he might thicken up in the next year or so. I think he looks nice.

    He is goose-rumped, and overall has rather weak hindquarters. A bit too straight through the hocks, too. His shoulder is big and strong, but his neck is set on a bit low and is too straight, even ewe necked.

    Pasterns look fine to me, and front legs, while a bit light of bone, look ok to me.
    His color is simply gorgeous! I bet he's a nice horse, too.

    He gets points from me for simply being a blue roan

    A bit thin and under-muscled. Goose-rumped and lowset neck, which is muscled incorrectly and is upside-down. He could use weight and correct muscle overall. He has a great big but steep shoulder and nice looking feet.

    Working him in a round frame up and down hills, walk and eventually trot, will help his neck switch from being primarily muscled in the underneck to muscling on the topline. Nice looking guy--I just love blue roans.

    I think he looks nice.. needs feed / muscle / fat and will look great :)

    Shoulder looks little steep but overall nice looking horse. What is his breeding or is he grade?

    Thanks for the input guys. We are starting on the weight and muscle issues. Hope to have him looking game before long.
    He is Hancock bred. I know I'm partial, but I think he's a beautiful specimen of the blue roan coloring.

    I don't usually go for roans but he has a great color!

    He needs some groceries! And also is not very developed in the hind end and seems a bit weak back there. Make sure his diet is appropriate and saddle is fitting well.
