Confo Crit. 17mo old

I know you guys are probably getting sick of Rodeo, just want to make sure Im not missing anything obvious with his confo as hes growing up.

What I see is hes over at the knee, downhill still, and he toes out in the back. As far as his angles, I have no idea, never been good at the angles. As far from what I can see, he seems to have somewhat of a shorter back...dont quote me on that. I know these pics arent the best for a confo crit, but for right now, this is what I have....please let me know if there is anything you guys see that I dont. Thanks

Back Again







Planning on getting more confo pics sometime next month since he'll be 18months already!!! Thanks again

The conformation flaws that I'm seeing are still the same as the last critique. He's going to look funky, especially at this age- and probably up into the beginning of his third years. He's in his 'gawky teenager' stage right now, with an oversided head, scrawny body, and a downhill build- but almost everything that I'm seeing is 100% normal and as he fills out, they will dissapear/fade. His legs have good bone and a nice big butt, with fair shoulder and hip angles.

I'd advice in waiting 4-5 months between each critique. That way we'll be able to see how he's progressing much easier, because it will be more significant.

All in all I think he'll be a fine horse. I see nothing that will prevent him from being a nice gaming, trail, or all around horse. And really, even if I did, there isn't much you can do about how he's made! ;)

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Thanks for the critique....I was thinking that I probably should have waited about 5min after I posted this. I was going to do it the other day, but I thought, like you said it would be better to wait longer so we could actually see some changes, lol....

Dont know why I decided to post it, guess I just want to make sure nothing major is going on. Thanks again!
