Critique My Horse's Conformation [ bunch of pics ]

Critique Splash for me... he is all fuzzy right now.
IMO he needs more muscle on his topline.
He does have some arab in him, so that explains the short back.. Critique away.

Hmmm...well something about his feet has got me stumped for some reason. His neck is really short, I think he could even lose some weight and replace the lost weight with more muscle. Thats all I can think of now...other than that, he looks cute, and dirty lol

Looks to me like he toes out in both front and back although that maybe the angle. Could do with losing some weight and putting on muscle to balane out the short neck and back. Very compact horse.

I agree with everyone. His front feet look a bit clubby to me.

I need to get his legs and feet all brushed. they had huge clods of dirts stuck to his hair. the pictures dont do him justice. its a bad angle and his feet are under himself.

Idk, his fronts look very vertical to me, no slope to them... and toed out a bit, when was the last time you had him trimmed?

Aww what a perfect name for his unique look! Hes a cutie! Over all I think hes adorable, I am a big fan of the chubby/compact look whether thats a good or bad thing. I don't think is neck is "very short" as they rest of him is that way but its a little shorter than it could be, making his head look a bit large. His front legs do look a little toed out and clubby to me as well.
