Critique new colt please

Here is my new appaloosa colt. He is a black fewspot leopard and he's 7 months old. I know my pics aren't the best.

Sorry..no critique from me, other than he's adorable!!! :)

His whithers seem a bit low, or his butt is too high. Of course it could be the ground, the angle, or his age.
His neck also seems very thick but it could be the fuzz.

Its hard to critique when they're foals, but he's still very adorable.

He is a cute one for sure.

What do you plan to do with him?

I agree that his neck does seem a little short and fat; it could be that he is so young or so fuzzy... I've seen a little growing do wonders for a horse .

For comparison this is my 7 month old colt (as of now he is solid, though my new trainer just pointed out to me he does have some Sclera). He was 13 hands on Wed when I measured him.
I also think my colt has a bit of a short/fat neck and a pretty weak hind end I hope will change some more with age... though doubtful .

You have to post pictures of him when he sheds out. I bet he'll be stunning! He's so adorable.

Thanks everybody, he is a cutie!! Hopefully I will be breeding him to my big appy mare who kinda looked like your colt FlyinSoLow. The color is close anyway. She is a solid appy. She is the big one on the left.

Well, your going to get color then . That's what is so great about a few spot!

Good luck with him!

It's not fair/good to critique a horse that young. He doesn't look good right now. He's butt high and awkward looking - just like they are supposed to be at that age. He'll see-saw back and forth for the next couple of years. Then when he's done you'll get a better picture of his conformation.
