Critique Joe please!

So today I was able to give Joe a bath! Yes it was warm enough but strangely it gets into the low 30s at night and is freezing, gotta love Cali weather. Anyways I was hoping that the pics I got would be good enough for you to critique Joe. Does he look like he's got some good muscle to you? I have worked very hard with him the past few years! Thanks In advance!











For fun!

I like the way he looks. Not to much muscle yet enough where it looks right =]

She's very pretty. She looks up hill and maybe a little cramped under in the front. Her back is a little long and she has a thin neck.

I'm guessing she's a TB right?

Wow, he's stunning. So shiny! He does look a bit uphill, long neck, nice long legs, good muscling. :) Very cute!

Ride more, worry less.

He is very beautiful. He is ewe necked so needs to be worked on the bit to develope that muscle, but it wont take a lot to fix.
He is uphill but that's not the end of the world, and is heaps easier to ride than a downhill horse.
He has the hind legs of a showjumper!

I love the halter and lead.

He looks exactly like my chestnut thoroughbred, just bay. I always had problems fitting saddles with a high wither. Just watch that your saddle doesnt get in the way of the withers. Also his neck looks a little short for his body and could use some toning for sure. But no word of a lie, he looks E-X-A-C-T-L-Y like my thoroughbred lol.

A cat looks down on a man,
But a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal

he is cute! Skinny neck but that's a TB for you, my mare has the same thing and it's just a TB thing ... his toes look a little long but I am super picky on shoeing lol ... but I think that he looks really good, well balanced and in great shape! :)

My TB mare has very high withers...I ride in a Wintec dressage saddle...I believe a Wintec Pro or 500- I'd have to check...with the cair system (if that matters)...and it fits her wonderfully!

He's got some muscles, just a bit more work on your hands and he'll be great!
He's looking good!
