I think I've critiqued this horse like 3 times already :p

It's already been posted here? Or on other forums?

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

Here. I'm not sure if they're the same photos, but the horse is definitely always by that trailer. Lol.

Get some conformation shots. Square him up and get front/back/both side. These pictures are nothing to critique.

I want to know about his legs; are they straight? Does he have a good slope to his shoulder? Is his back to long? Does he have the start of a conformation that can withstand a lifetime of performance every weekend?
I think a critique of a horse's confirmation is an all over look at him. His front legs look incredibly short in relation to his head/neck/body/hind legs. It's really hard to look at his shoulder with tiny legs and a giant upper body in these photos.

If you really want an honest critique I don't think he has very good conformation and am glad that he is going to be gelded. I would think he needs to go through some pretty dramatic changes to be what I would consider a good "performance" horse of any kind and since he's not a foal any more, I don't know how much leveling out he has left to do with the butt-high thing.

I like his coloring and love his long bangs, I'm jealous! It looks like he is very well cared for and loved and is at a really great weight. That's basically all I can force out of those pictures.

It's not all bad, horses don't need to be conformation-ally perfect and not all horses need to be super-star athletes or performance studs. I hope you guys have a wonderful time doing whatever it is you want to do!
