Smile Critique my boy

This is skeeter I got him about 5 months ago... I just wanted someone elses opinion on his confrmation. (I was not the one who clipped him so please don't comment on that) and please be nice :) had a hard time keeping him standing in one spot.

he's cute. i don't have time for a full critique, but the thing that really jumps out at me is that he toes out quite a bit in the front (more so with his right) and the back.

nothing obviously wrong with him IMO

First off, no horse is perfect - even mine! (especially mine, actually).

What I see is that he is a little cresty but that can be taken care of with some weight loss. He turns out both front and back (many horses do), and his tail is set a little too low for my liking.

Overall image, he looks like a nice compact horse; a little over weight but I like him.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I see the same as the rest with the toes, but overall he looks good. He's balanced and a pretty good looking horse.

In My Opinion .... or IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) :)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

I agree with this. He's quite nicely built, and he has a nice soft expression.

Iride...your avator is hilarious!!! I have a pic of one of my goats who was flat out on her side napping...everyone who walked by thought there was something wrong with her (we were at a fair)! I got lots of "OMG is she dead???" yeah, I'm gonna leave a dead goat in a pen for everyone to see...hahaha!

I don't see him as over weight, I think his over all condition looks excellent. He is a nice looking boy and nothing jumps out at me other than the toe out issue already addressed.
