looks thin boned up front, but may just be due to looking fat. I am thinking winter coat and over weight/ under muscled. Think he'll look dandy with better diet and conditioning program.

You are right on joe4d he came to us very overweight possibly due to being on alfalfa and being an easy keeper. We have knocked him back and he is currently on BOW which he is doing amazing on.. He already lost some of that belly and with more riding I am sure he will start to look better :].

Do you guys think he'd do ok in barrels confo wise? Or should i just focus on training him up some and look for something better suited?
He doesn't have a normal trot in the back my trainer says he almost floats and it is really weird to ride.

He has som rotations going on in those front legs. Not bad.. on the left but the right front looks as if the cannon is roatated under the knee. He is standing on SAND though and that throws everything off. Try to get a photo of him on hard ground. Get some help to do this. His front cannons look light in bone. He is tied in a bit at the knee.

He is also not sickle hocked. He seems to need his feet trimmed. In the first photo his toes in front look long.. and then in the lower photos he looks like his hinds have so much heel they are nearly clubby.

He may be a bit down hill. His shoulder is adequate but he has a low point of shoyulder and a low angle from point of shoulder to point of elbow.

Nice little horse. See how he does!

Yes the pictures are before he got trimmed his feet were bad and the farrier wants to take it slow so even with a couple being after he is nowhere near being 'normal' . I will try and get new ones Wednesday on the cement slab we have I'm usually by myself when i take pictures.
