Conformation on my icelandic yearling?

Actually can't remember if I've posted a thread on him yet..

Anyway, here goes :)
Sólon, icelandic boy, one and a half years old :)

I know you can't see terribly much at these, but I figure I'll take new pictures tomorrow if I remember my camera;) So the reason to post this already is:
What kind of pictures do you need?
Sideview, full frontal, full back.. anything else?

I would take the pictures like you were sending them to the breed registery. A view of both sides with him standing square (or close to it) and a view of his front (face legs chest) and a view of his his hind end (butt legs) =]

Ok, thanks :)

I have no idea how to take photos for registry either :P

It's very difficult to take good pictures when you're alone.. >_<'
And I took the liberty to groom him, without a clue on how to groom for showing off xD just playing around. His mane is braided because that part won't lie nicely on one side and it looks strange when it's all poofy there.

I'll tell a bit of his history later for thiose that doesn't know :) I don't want it to affect your comments :)

First of all, he's cute! And I know nothing about Icelandics, so I can't really critique him. He's so little, how big do you think he will get to?

Well isn't he his color! He's so whooly! LOL Conformation is hard to tell at this age...he looks butt high but that could be from uneven ground or a growth spurt he'll catch up to. I think an extra dewormer would help him out, but he looks ok overall!

Thanks :)

Dewormer won't help much, the belly is there thanks to severe lack of protein and starvation, I got him two months ago as the police sold off neglected horses. :) That's not easy for you to tell as the symptoms is pretty much the same.
Yeah I think it's uneven growth.. he's been an inch or two higher already since I got him, at the withers! I say ''one or two'' because I might measure badly :P it was 2 inches as I could see :P And his butt wasn't that high before..x)

He's severly x-legged/cow legged on the hindlegs and narrow in front.. my farrier believe that when he gets some muscles that will sort out :)

Well..that's what I know and think of him ar least..xD I'm no xpert tho.

Gidji: I have no idea since I don't know his parents or anything :) He's 125cm now, I hope he'll be 135 (another 5 inches) which would be 13 and a half hh if I'm right. I won't mind if he's bigger but I can accept that :P
(I'm so happy icies can carry full grown people despite being ponies..xD )
