Conformation critique please?

I finally figured out how to get those pictures off the the pdf file!!! It only took days lol. But here is the colt that I was worried about his conformation in the front legs. He looks a little toed out to me. I'm not sure if that will get better with age or what? What do you guys think? I've looked everywhere for a horse of this color for my husband. He's a blue roan and white paint/thoroughbred. He was born in July I believe.

I know they arent the best pictures to be able to tell exactly.

I don't really see anything that jumps out at me. Although it is hard to tell with his feet being hidden in the hay and snow and all his fluffy hair. I don't see any serious confo faults but he is still just a baby. He could be toed out on the front and back or he could just be standing funny. If you have the opportunity, wait until he is about 2 and in the spring or summer when he is slicked off to get some serious confo shots. His markings are very pretty and it looks like he is going to be a pretty tall boy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

yeah I know its so hard to tell with him being so fuzzy and the pictures arent that great. I think we're going to get him! They aren't selling him for that much so it won't be a huge loss to us if he turns out to have bad confo. The owner says he has a good conformation but I just wanted others opinions since we can't go see him in person. We'll drive out to pick him up but its quite a drive so I want to make sure before hand!

Even without perfect conformation, he has the potential to be an amazing horse. My baby that I use all the time is VERY pigeon toed but has never had soundness issues. Good luck and I expect more pictures after you get him home.

She is aware of that. Those are just what the current owner gave her.

He looks very cute and I dont see anything that jumps out at me.

My app mare is a bit pigeon toed and it hasn't affected her or anything.

Good luck if you get him!
