Smile Critique my gelding :)

So I bought my 4 year old new forest gelding, Freddy, last October, and was just interested to see what others thought of him (because I am totally biased!).

I understand he has a ewe neck, but I am uncertain if this is due to confirmation of lack of muscle.

I'll love him no matter what, so it doesn't matter to me if you don't like the look of him!

Please bear in mind I half-rescued him (he was bullied by mares and not handled in his old home.)

To me, he will never be more than a happy hacker, but if you think he has potential, I'd be glad to hear it!

I apologize for the terrible quality and/or the size of these pictures. Or the state of my field!

Please don't hate on me, as a 16 year old doing A levels and looking after him on my own, I don't always have time to take beautiful, confirmation showing pictures!

Many thanks for your time :)

He actualy looks like a really nice horse. He looks really sturdy, and he has an AMAZING tail! Looks like you could do any thing with him. :)

Red face

Thank you SO MUCH :)

This has made me smile so much you would not believe :)

He LOVES to jump so if I can get him jumping properly that would be my dream!

Thanks, myhorsesonador about the tail, I love it, he keeps it so clean and it is very thick, never seen a tail quite like it.

Is it just me that seeks the ewe neck, or can you see it too?

Thank you, too, cloudkisser, he does have such a sweet face, he's my first pony and such a sweetheart, he is the only one that can make me smile some days!

I really appreciate it, thanks again.
(Think I'm saying thanks too much - but I mean it!)

I like him. He looks very sturdy. I bet his neck will thicken when he puts on more muscle.

Thanks! He is a sturdy boy, I hope it does thicken!

Definitely looks like a good sturdy horse. With training he could do anything :)

I'M hopless at crtique so I wont even try lol but I was wondering what that red stuff is and why there are poles around it?
I have never seen anything like that before and just curious

I am guessing it is woodchips or something else that the horses won't eat. The paddock is muddy and with the horses being fed on the ground, it could be to reduce the trampling of food into the mud, and also to keep the horses from ingesting too much sand.

Very nice pony. I like the way he jumps. Can he jump like that with someone on him or.... you probably hadn't rode him yet. Ummm, can't tell about his neck need to get a picture of him standing sideways and him looking forward. Nice jump...LOL, just use what you got. I did that until I got real barrels to run around. And my horse spills his food all the time if I don't tie it down to something. Don't worry bout the field. It's livable for the horses then that's fine, so is my field. There not going to get a five star hotel just a walking in barn and bout 7 ares to graze. Even though two and a half is ours.
