I'd like to see better pics,but first impressions I don't mind him & see potential to make a nice show prospect.
I will try to get pictures of him on the drive way on the next sunny day...

I don't like his head, but the qh's we breed have tiny little perfect triangle heads so my opinion is bi-est. Since we just came back from congress and I got to many complements on my little jenny.

The main things I see are upright pasterns, and maybe a slightly long back.

Other than that I really like him. He looks very level-headed.

I wanted to get better pictures today but I did not have any help... so this was the best I could do with no help...

And of course later on my mother came out and snapped pictures of me playing around bareback but she was too busy to help me out and get better conformation shots. Mothers. :roll: I think she was just checking to make sure I was still alive since I was outside all morning haha. Not sure if they help but I included the more 'square' one.




You can see how wild he is...

What are you showing in?

I kind of agree with smorbs, I trust her judgement she has been around plenty of horses in her life time and I truely think he has a weak hiney, whether that can be fixed with muscle? I don't know.

Oh well I got myself a well tempered lawn mower then I guess.

Funny, my least favorite thing about Pj is his little crappy feet (which are typical for his breeding and require more vigorous upkeep plus a hoof supplement) and no one mentioned them...

he can still be good! Conformation doesn't always choose what a horse excels at. If he has the heart for it then that's always a good thing! I really don't think his feet are that small. Mainly because his body isn't overly huge. I think they are pretty decent honestly. I know the feeling of crappy feet though. My moms grade mare has the WORST feet ever.

I'm not his biggest fan either, but he's smaller than I expected with his pedigree. Kids Classic Style is HUGE. He makes me cringe. So I will tell you I like PJ far more than KCS.

He looks very laid back and has a sweet face.

Those pasterns make me cringe. Im with smrobs on this one. He has a cute disposition but as far as movement/conformation im not a fan. He is not built correctly for what you want to do with him. I can see him doing well 4-h level but that's about it. I would watch for navicular with this one, horses with pasterns like his are almost always end up with navicular.
