Confo critique. And what breed do you think he is?

This is Romeo, my seven year old gelding. 15.1 hands tall and super narrow build, but leggy, so that's nice. I know most of his faults (most obvious is his toothpick legs and pony hooves) but if you guys could find any more, don't hesitate to point 'em out! Tear him apart, I won't tell him! [=

Also, although he's registered with USEF as an Appendix QH, that was a total guess. Lately people have been telling me he's a total Thoroughbred. But, no lip tattoo so who knows. Lemme know what you guys think! Thanks! [=

(Pictures are ordered newest to oldest.)





^ He's lacking muscle in this picture due to him just coming back from an injury... he's really buff now, haha!

^ Doesn't normally stand that camped under.

^ Older picture, right after he got clipped two years ago.

Alright, have fun!
Thanks guys!

I would agree on the TB. I see no QH in him at all. He's a beautiful boy!

I see all TB. He also doesn't need to have a lip tattoo if he's a TB. They only tattoo them for racing.

He looks Thoroughbred to me as well. If that's him in your avatar as well I might say Arab somewhere in there too but really, TB :)

He's very pretty.

Haha, yes, that's him in my avatar as well. It's funny you would say that because my trainer is always telling me he has "arab hips"!

I know he doesn't need a lip tattoo to be a Thoroughbred, I was just saying I'll never know for sure, haha. But thanks for the input everyone, so far it looks as though he may just be a Thoroughbred! [=

Hmmm, never seen arab hips like those! I agree with the thoroughbred.

Looks like he could be a little downhill, his pasterns are a little long for my tastes. Looks a little ewe-y in the neck and maybe ties a little low. Pretty boy though!

He really is a beauty! I don't see any more faults, at least not major ones, then the ones you mentioned, and as strange as this sounds, his fault kind of make him cute. ;) haha

I agree that he is a thoroughbred, it is possible that he has some quarter horse in him and is an appendix.

Aw! What a handsome boy!

he doesnt need a tattoo to be TB, he could have been backyard bred or just never planned on being raced
