    I like him, he's beautiful. Nicely proportioned. Good powerful hind quarters, conformation looks good.

    You going to use him for eventing?

    Thanks!! I just noticed how he does a sporthorse in hand pose I definitely didn't teach him how to do that. Do they teach tb's to do that for auction? As far as I know he is tb, but we have no papers, tatoo or any other way to identify him. That's what we were told by the lady who we got him from which was what she was told by the lady she got(rescued) from.

    Anyways I'm taking my C3 and I really need some bad conformation faults to discuss about him. Right now all I've got is the fact that his legs are long contributes to over reach injuries and pulling shoes, and he stands slightly over at the shoulder which inhibits his stride length and his tuck.

    Help Please!!!

    It's very hard without the horse in front of me, but really he looks fairly well put together.

    He lacks muscle tone and topline which makes his back look a little week to me, but I can see the potential. He's not too turned out behind, didn't have a front on piccy so can comment on front legs.

    Generally a nice boy!

    The one thing that stands out to me is he's a little calf kneed and his neck angle is a little steeper than average. I wish I could see a front view of him head on, it looks from the side angle to the right that he may be toeing out in the front right, but I can't really tell. He also looks slightly sickle hocked from the side views, but without him being better squared up, I can't really tell either. So, I'm not saying that he is, but if you get a front on and one where he's squared up really well, I would be able to tell you whether or not for sure he is. All in all, I think he's a pretty boy, especially his head and hindquarters and congratulations on your placing with him!!
