    Confo Critique

    Here are some pics of my new guy I just bought this past week...not the best confo, but his personality was just to die for...let me know what you think:)

    3Months Old

    8Months Old

    11Months Old

    Sorry if the pics arent good confo pics...only ones I have right now :)
    To me, it seems like he is looking better as he gets older...kinda goofy looking at 8Months(I think) but seems to be getting a little better at 11months...I believe he is also pretty downhill, and needs to grow some withers(lol)

    Let me know what you think! Thanks

    Impoosible to really critique a foal.. I have seen some beauties turn ugly and some uglies turn to beauties. He seems to be developing into a short coupled horse with posty (over straight) hind legs. His left cannon looks a bit turned out which may be a problem or not depending on his use.

    He looks a useful sort and not overlarge.

    He is cute as a button and his markings are nice.

    WHat are your plans for him?

    Yeah, I agree with you about critiquing a foal....Id like to do some versatility with him...but mostly trail riding...I figured that he would probably be fine for what I want him for :)

    I will give you that he has cute markings which I am guessing is why you bought him.

    Fingers crossed that he is just going through an awkward stage.

    Posty pasterns, weak looking back, toes out.

    I thought you had decided to buy an older horse. What changed your mind back to a younger one?

    Hunter looked totally like that at 18 months (although he was malnourished when I adopted him). He is now 3 and looks totally different and is just now starting to grow some withers.

    Your little guy is a cutie patootie. Im sure he will grow into himself.

    Alwaysbehind I could really care less about color or markings to tell you the truth...I ended up going and looking at him, and just fell in love with his personality!! Honestly, chestnut is my least favorite color(personal opinion) and this is the first Paint that I've ever even considered buying(no offense to Paints). But like I said, his personality was just too perfect for me. As for why I didnt go with an older horse...just didnt for whatever reason...thanks for the post!
