    Change? (slightly image heavy) Critique BOO!

    Alright its been along time since I have posted pics of Blu. He is toning up pretty good. I am ready for the worst. Lol. Tell me all that you think.

    NOTE: ground is uneven though he is ever so slightly uphill I believe.

    And he actually stood nicely for me. I'm impressed with our work. Lol.


    There are some goofy pics!





    He was shaking lmao












    Reminds me of a Spanish horse



    Smile


    Mmmm


    Thanks for looking!!! Hope you enjoyed! :roll:

    Aww, cute pics. :P

    As for critique:
    - he has nice, strong shoulders
    - head a nice size for his body
    - he seems to have very long forearms and short cannon bones
    - his neck could meet his shoulder with more of a gentle slope instead of just jutting out from the shoulder
    - withers a bit higher than croup
    - in the 3rd pic, looks like long gaskins and perhaps a bit sickle-hocked (?)

    He could use a bit more muscling and work on his topline, but overall he looks pretty good. Is he appaloosa? He's cute!

    Now you guys can really see his molted skin, huh? Lol. Yes he is appaloosa but I don't believe that's the only thing.

    Jubilee - also noticed the forearm and cannon bone thing after studying the pics. I've never heard of being sickle-hocked is it similar to cow-hocked by any chance? THANKS!!!

    Sara - I think I took a pic of his front as well if you'd like me to post it. THANKS!!!

    STG - Yay! Hehe. Ya I am surprised at how the pics came out actually. THANKS!!!

    In sickle-hocked the angle of the leg appears really angular and it is drawn underneath the body quite a bit, making the hocks stick out kind of. (Sorry, bad at explaining it). His isn't as bad as in this picture, but you kind of get the idea:

    You know, I just looked at the pictures again, and he only has it only very slightly. Maybe not even at all ... haha, now I'm not sure!
