I'm not giving much of a critique except to say he is adorable, and there is hope for his pastern angles. My two-year-old's pasterns were very upright when I got him at 9 months, and now they seem perfect.

Thanks! Gelding he will be! Just as soon as the wicked heat and flies here in AZ dies down He may be pretty, but I wouldn't dream of keeping him a stallion!

Thanks I'm not too worried about his pasterns either, I think they'll end up great A lot will change from now until he's done growing!

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

The shoulder (and in conjunction, the rest of the leg) angles are among the last things to change in a young horse. (same can be said, to some degree, of the hindquarter angles)

That said, they won't always, necessarily, improve with age... They can also go the other way, and some change very very little. Usually though, when you have a foal which is correct they stay that way unless poorly cared for, or injured.
