Another that caught my eye.

Here's another one that has caught my eye that has gone through the Camelot auction. A Draft rescue in Ohio has rescued him and I am definitely waiting for the day he goes up for adoption, cause I would definitely love him.

And since I am horrible with figuring out conformation on my own, although I know the obvious points of it... I'd still like to see what you all say.


He's the big white boy:

I call dibs if can't keep him for whatever reason

He looks stunning, but I'm no conformation expert so I can't help you there

he is a lovely boy. Even though Camelot is the name of the auction I think it'd be a great name for him too, he looks like a horse king aurthur would ride ehe.

He is a cutie!

As for critique, I like the look of his pasterns. Nice and shortish, with slope. I'm not sure about that hindquarter but that may be the angle of the pics.

I would go into more detail but I'm writing this on my phone and it would take a week.

He definitely is gorgeous and Camelot would be an awesome name imo

I don't know if its just the pics but his hooves seem very small and (especially the front ones) very upright and boxy. But I am in no way a conformation expert!

Unfortunately I found out today that this boy is almost completely blind. :/ How sad.

Aww, poor guy.

He's beautiful, though. I would still want him. Blind horses can lead fairly normal lives with the proper care. He looks really sweet. :)
