Critique Conformation On New Horse!

This is my 3 year old standardbred, currently standing 16.2, i dont get him till July 31st, the horses he was with were beating him up so he was moved in with the yearlings. He a little rough looking atm.

I tried to get squared shots of him but it was very difficult so bare with me!

I am not sure what the standard for STB conformation is but I think he is a good looking boy. He could use some muscle in his neck and his front pasterns seem to have a bit too much slope but other than that, he looks great.

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:

What a lovely looking gelding, beautiful <3
He has okay proportions, his neck is a little small and needs a lot of muscle to put it into proportion (my boy has this).
He has a good top line, nice short cannon bones, straight plum lines.. but he has very long gangly legs!
I like him a lot!
