He's built very downhill, but since he's also quite young he's liable to mostly grow out of it, if not completely. He has a straight shoulder and needs a trim, but otherwise he's rather adorable. I think he'll make for a cute cart horse :)

Wait! I'll fix it....

He's awkward looking - as he should be at this age. So it's not fair to give any kind of critique when he will grow out of most of the awkward issues.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

He looks like a sweetie!!!!
He has a very sweet face and I love his coat color!
Yes, he is a little downhill, and from a hoof-trimmer's opinion, YIKES his feet need to be trimmed. Long toes, but that's easily fixed.
Very nice horse. Did you breed him yourself? Or did you buy him?

Pretty much what TG's said. I can see a straight shoulder and he's downhill..but he's a yearling and he'll do alot of changing in the next few years. He's a doll though...congrats!

well, he is a yearling so he is not going to completely grow into that ass, as he is VERY downhill if he was just a foal he'd have a chance, but no. He also looks to be back at the knee

What? Are you saying he will not even out?

If so - I very much disagree. He is ONLY a yearling. He has several years before he is physically mature.

Arabs tend to grow into their 6th year, sometimes more. But he is VERY downhill, at this point he's got some chance to grow out of it. but IMO I think he'll still be a little bit slopey. Also, those toes are scary, I'm glad your getting him trimmed.
:) I don't think his shoulder is to bad, I'm pretty sure thats something he'll grow out of. :)
