4 y/o Thoroughbred

We went and saw him a few weeks ago...I really like him. Going to look at him again and see maybe if we can lease him for a while to see what he's like, and then buy him. Conformation critiques?

I don't really know the ins and outs of conformation like some on this board but I find him to be a pretty attractive guy. I think he has a lovely neck..his back legs appear weak to me or at least seem to lack muscle above his hocks...not sure if that is actually a flaw and if so..what it means per se but looks lacking in that area. Maybe someone with more knowledge can tell you more or even if what I see is a "flaw".

Agree with the comment above, he looks really lovely. There not much major to point out, could do with a little more meat around his middle but he looks happy and healthy, good luck.

I think he is adorable. What are you planning on doing with him? I think he looks very typey for the hunters. I think with some weight on him he'll look amazing!

I like him. Well proportioned, good pastern and shoulder angles, nice-looking neck....

He is very lovely and looks like a sweet boy.. I'm not great on confirmation. But he doesn't have anything jumping out at me, other than he looks a little thin. But most TB's can be that way. Good luck with him if you decide to get him.

I like him! He seems like a sweet guy... very pretty. Could use some more weight, but he's a TB, and I'm struggling with weight on my guy too! Leasing him before buying is a great idea! Or maybe even a 1 or 2 week trial period? It's always nice to know it'll work out before taking the plunge.

Thanks. He's suposedley extremely well bred. Though the owners before his current ones lost his papers :/ couldn't find his pedigree but if anyone wants to try his registered name is Copper Canyon.

Oooh yeah I think it is. Not very good at recognizing the racehorses but I knew Northern Dancer and Mr. Prospector. Is his pedigree good?
