How not to take conformation photos

I went out yesterday with the noble notion of taking some conformation shots, which didn't work out so well....getting a yearling to square up and stand still is next to impossible, plus I didn't give my cameraman very good instructions :P Still, thought I'd post what we shot anyway, he's looking half-finished but healthy. Considering how long we were at it, he was extremely well-behaved; I was very proud of him.

Ha, I was actually surprised at how shiny he looked...I brushed him down but he was pretty filthy. We gave him a bath after the photos.

While they're not perfect, they are definately not the worst!
He is a very good looking young man. :)

That's some horse. Very pretty little thing!
I love his legs for some odd reason!

Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!
