Critique Of My Thoroughbred?

Hey Everyone

Awhile ago i posted a picture of my thoroughbred off the track. Well he has been off the track for 6 - 8 months now and i would like a good overall check of his conformation and his strong points (strong legs, good neck etc.)

Also wanting to know if you think he could make it into the official hack ring or led ring?

I Know he is underweight a bit - but he is going through the off the track thoroughbred stage (he was raced for 6 years heavily and successfully).

If you require more photos please tell me!

Honest opinions please!

Liz. =]

He's cute and looks very kind. It is funny trying to look at the pictures upside down and sideways.

Lol.

Thank-you - I will try and rotate the photos so you get a better look.

looks like he has some pretty solid bones there. I like his shape, once he's completely filled out and properly muscled I think he'll be stunning. I dont like his front legs though, narrow chest and hes knees dont look quite right, but he looks very kind!

He is pretty! He looks kinda cowhocked (altho that pic is dark) his withers are fairly noticable, he is cutee!

Ride more, worry less.

Nothing - bad pictures.

Head pictures don't tell much of anything about the horse, neither do pictures that are too big for the screen, upside down or sideways or pictures that cut off the bottom part of the legs.

The butt pictures is the only good one, but I don't have anything to really say about that one. Looks pretty thin.

There's a good sticky up top that tells you how to take the pictures.

I like the riding pictures though.

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