I pretty much agree with everyone else. I think his neck looks so long because there is not much muscle there. To me, his shoulder looks to be relatively steep though. However, seeing as how he hasn't been worked much and in the great realm of things is still pretty young I think you have quite a nice boy there! Good luck with the weight lifting!lol

I think he's actually quite cute, but there is something with his conformation that throws me off and I can't put my finger on it. I don't think what's throwing me off is the muscle either, there is just something and I can't quite put my finger on it.
Good luck with him though. I'm really curious to see what he looks like muscled up and more filled in. Good luck with him, he seems like a sweet boy.

Lol, thanks guys!

You can't tell it much in the pictures, but he's begun to finally stock up and his bones are fairly thick... He stood next to our Racking Horse mare the othr ay (and she's huge... huge bone mass makes her look extremely stocky, though she's 15.1 hands)... well, he made her look smallish! Lol...

Hopefully, later this year or next I can start working him more like I was last year... but I dunno if I'll get to now that I have a three year old 'project' (Jaxxon, lol) to work with and get trained later this year/next year.

Nice to hear you've some horsey stuff going on. Keep you busy that's for sure! I would take your time with him. He's young enough he still has some filling in to do and if you're not going to be able to fully dedicate some time to break him etc, you are better off leaving him until you do find the time. Young horses do a lot better with consistent work.

Good luck with him, and keep us posted.

Lol... yeah, I keep busy...

I'm going tro go really slow with Jax... he's still too immature mentally and physically (IMO) to start anything big (and he needs to get his weight back up)... and right now I'm just working on teaching him to pick up his hooves (my farrier is coming out for him later next week) and stand ok to be sprayed with the hosepipe (he needs a bath...). Lol.

When I start breaking him in (whenever I decide he's ready), I'll be going his pace and making sure he has a good, solid foundation to work from.
