I've always been pretty clueless regarding confirmation, so I'd love to hear what the educated HorseForum readers see in my horse, Monte! Feel free to be as brutal as needed I bought this guy for his personality and definitely won't kick him out to pasture if he is deemed to have "bad" confirmation.
Sorry about the photos...I had a heck of a time getting him to stand square and he's also very "winterized" (dirty, weight fluctuating, waaay out of shape).
*Whew! Sigh of relief that nothing too horrible was pointed out!*
I'm really bad about keeping on top of his conditioning in the Winter. When I do drag myself down to the cold frozen barn, I sometimes just hang out and groom him instead of putting him to work. Plus, with snow on the ground, it's hard for me to even get to the barn. On photo-shoot day, it took me about 30 attempts to get my car out of the parking lot (and I had to shovel the entire driveway too)!
I think I'll save these photos and do a comparison next summer when he's all buff and clean!!
