    Could you critique his conformation?

    Hey, this is Tyler, he is a 6-7 y.o. TB Gelding. I was just wondering what you think of his conformation. Sorry if the pictures aren't the best!

    Hes gorgeous the only thing I could say is that his hocks seem slightly taller then his knees would could make him a bit harder to bring his hocks under himself (but then it could just be the picture)

    Well, isn't Tyler just the cutest darned thing??! Love that second picture!! I'm not really seeing anything that's screaming bad confo here. I loovve to give critiques, but I also love good squared up pictures to base an honest opinion on. He's got a good set of TB withers, he lacks a little muscle tone, I'm seeing more fat on him than muscle and I think he could use a good work program/diet especially if he's full blood tb. I really like him, but I'd really like to see a nice squared up picture of him, so I can really give a good critique. Did I mention he was cute? :P

    How much grain are you giving him per day? And can you get a picture of a back view?? :)

    Yes, he is a pudgy thing... The second picture is a few months ago, and since then he has lost quite a few pounds, and gained quite a bit of energy. I'll try to get a back picture soon as well As for grain he gets a scoop in the morning and a scoop at night five times a week, then a scoop in the morning and bran mash at night, twice a week. I considered putting him on a diet once, but he loves his food too much and I wuld feel awful cutting it down. :roll: he eats his grain like its his last meal. As for his hocks, They might be slightly taller, (the pictures are all a bit sloped though) but he collects himself quite nicely. Thank You!
