Can you post conformation shots, squared up on level ground from both sides, front then back?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I think at a local show he'd do fine. He may have too much competition at a breed show. BUT... in a performance halter class he may do better...

I always put my guy in halter just because I like to get him in the ring first thing in the morning...

Yep. Tonight. Everytime I ask a question I have to get new pictures :) Sorry, I'm just learning a ton of this stuff and my brain gets on overload sometimes.

I like his rear end. Can't tell "Cat Ballou" (love that film!!), if he's downhill?
IMO, I hate the "new" rear end that is being bred on halter QH's. Looking overly muscled is NOT the same as having a muscled up rear end. They started this crap about 30 years ago, breeding a tiny foot on a bulldog type, and pretending that it could support all that extra weight. ALL about looks, just like dog breeds, and nothing really different about performance.
Sorry for the rant but these horses have to LIVE with these genetics, and I think they are a step backwards.
You horse looks functional, and I like that.

yeah my friend gave me that nickname when I first became a raft guide. Its stuck ever since. He is downhill. He's 13.5 hands, and his butt could fit on a 14.5 horse (i think) I like him too, but I wanted some unbiased thoughts on it. Which I may get with my better pics :)

There is no such thing as a 13.5 hh horse. There are only 4 inches in a hand. So you have 13.0, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3 and then 14.0...14.1, 14.2, 14.3 and then 15.0...
