Confo. Shots

Conformation shots of my guy, TJ (and me! Ignore me!)! Feel free to comment. And yes, I know he's bay! It's actually sunset and we're directly in the sun. He bleaches out every summer, too, and this year was worse 'cuz he's on pasture board. I blame his daddy, Jillis 301, for carrying the chestnut gene!! Hee!

And a finally parting shot ...

What is his age?
What is he used for?

It's hard to really critique with out a good set up pic. The pictures makes it look like he stands way under in the front. He looks really developed in the front and not so much in the hindquarters. He's got a longer back.

Beautiful head, I really like his overall look.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Click on "My Barn" link (This member owns horse). All your questions shall be answered.

Yeah, he doesn't set up well. He doesn't like to stand still, and he's too curious for his own good...wants to be in your buisness all the time! :roll:

Hey! *waves* it's appygirl from NJ-horse!

TJ is just beautiful. I LOVE friesians!

Comparing him to the Wikipedia's breed characteristic, he looks spot on!

He has a nice muscled neck. Sloping hindquarters with a low tail set. I'm in love with his gorgeous mane and tail :)

Ahh he's just gorgeous!

Wow, he's gorgeous. Stunning, in fact!
He does look like he doesn't wanna stand still long, LOL! He looks like he's standing under himself in the front a bit.

Ride more, worry less.

If I wasn't into Quarter Horses so deeply, the Frisian is the breed I'd own. Some day.......hmmmm.

I like him.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I <3 him :) I was never a fan of fresians until I worked at a dressage farm that had a morgan/fresian cross in training. When he was collected and using himself I felt like I was going into battle... lol :) I never knew much about them before then so I never took to them, but after riding Teddy I've become a fan. It was especially cool to have that big mane flowing around me... except when it blocked my vision... :)

Anyway... as far a critique, I actually dont think his back is too long, he is somewhat smaller in the hind end than the front, but I think that's pretty typical? And from your avatar it looks as long he can use his hind end just fine. :)

Otherwise I have nothing negetive to say, he has a really nice expression :)

Thanks for all the nice comments! Personally, I think he's the perfect example of a Friesian, and I agree, his neck is definitly his best feature!! I really was hoping to take him to a keuring 'cuz I really think he'll get a 1st premie, maybe even STER!! However, the unscrupulous farm I bought him from only NOW sent me his registration/passport forms after three years of owning him (and three years of trying to contact them! )...sooo~o I still have to wait on that. :(

Thanks again!

p.s...hey appygirl/lover!! Fancy meeting you here!!!
