He's got a bit of a plain head. Nice shoulder from what I can tell in those pictures. Looks to have nice legs and a decent length of body. I'm not a fan of his neck-wither attachment, but that can be covered up with a bit of muscling.
I am hoping to run barrels with him. If he ends up being top notch, I will list him with Future Fortunes and IF. We will see if anything else manifests.....he has a decent collected trot. I've been on him a few times, but have had things come so his saddle work got back burnered. The only issue I might have racing him myself is I really prefer the short compact horses.....hopefully I will grow with him as he doesn't seem to be slowing down!! The few rides I did take with him he was very smooth and comfortable - albeit a bit down hill.
He got placed in a tiny paddock at the stable I just left and he lost a LOT of muscle tone in the past 2 months. The pics were taken 3 days after the move. That is another story, but he is not where he should have been.
