    He seems built rather 'downhill', meaning he's rather high on the rump. He also appears slightly toed out in the front.

    Otherwise, beautiful eyes and beautiful color!

    He could just be "butt-high" seeing as though he's only 2, a lot of growing yet to do! I love him very much! And looking at the pics he's so flashy! I love his confo, but am no expert :) I like his muscle tone (again, no expert), what kind of routine do you have exercising him?

    He is very cute.

    His neck attaches low on his chest, creating an illusion of a fairly thick set. His shoulder is fairly upright, and he looks like he might be the slightest bit back at the knee. His pasterns are a little long but fairly correct. His throatlatch is a little on the thicker side. He has a nice length of back and clean legs from what I can see. He is a bit downhill, but he's young and will probably even out.

    He breaks down pretty good, and ya, he's high in the back, but I would not worry about that. A lot of those young ones 'see saw' as they grow - he'll even out just fine. Pretty head on him, too. Legs look pretty straight from what I can see, though the rears look a little behind him... hard to tell without seeing him walk ...(I'm picky about legs!) All in all, he looks just fine to me. I'd take him in. ;)

    Thats just him, fresh off winter.....I was told not to lunge him because of his age,I've done a bunch of other groundwork,manors and such,doing training for showmanship.Besides that he just loves to play in the pasture.

    Aww he is pretty! LOVE HIM!

    He's got a really nice hip & butt
    I agree that his neck ties in a teensy bit low into his chest. I would like to see him lunged (when he is ready) in a full neck and jowl sweat

    He has nice clean legs which is awesome and he has a good slope to his pasterns, I don't think they are too long but any longer would not be good

    Yes I am absolutely sure he will even out and wont be downhill once he matures
    After-all he's just a baby ;)

    Super cute horse & it looks like he's going to be a superstar
