    Its the only picture I've got right now. How does he look? (Besides fat and flabby)

    He is an 8 y/o Registered Morgan gelding. Named Sylr Tomoro's King Solomon but we just call him Solomon or Sauly.

    He's definitely built uphill
    Post legged
    Possibly pigeon chested
    There's something about his neck I don't like

    Also he looks REALLY heavy on the forehand.
    He's not really fat...but being bigger built on the forehand than on the quarters makes him appear like that.

    He's a good looking guy though. I love his color and his face

    He is an adorable guy!

    I did notice he is built uphill and he is heavier on the front end than the back. Is that a morgan trait? I remember seeing another morgan who was also built uphill like your guy and she was also heavier in the front than the rear.

    He is really nice, very upstanding, alert horse. He is lacking some muscel in the hindend, but that's only work....

    Yeh he is nice

    Wow Appy you are quick! That is a Morgan trait. Not the uphill, but heavy in the front and lighter in the back. It's a not a conformational flaw in a morgan. I woundn't say that he is post legged either.

    No I love my Morgans but I do see one of two "flaws" in my opinion. I'm not a huge fan of his head. Morgans usually have such elegant head, his not so much.

    And he desperatly needs to see a set of nippers for those toes. Once again this is my personal opinion, I like my feet perfect!

    Overall he is a realy beauty! Love his color, it looks like he has a really sweet, honest eye, and his mane and tail are wonderful .

    I love forward to seeing more of him!

    oh cool! Well now I feel bad for saying he's heavier on the forehand.
    Thanks for clearing that up for me

    Farrier comes next week. :)

    Here is another angle of him, kind of cuddy. He is toed in one one front foot (it drives me bonkers) but walks perfectly fine, its almost as if he turns it as soon as he stops moving.

    I like his head. :) Very cute horse.

    I think his withers are little too behind the front legs. I'm not sure how it's called - heavy on front? So you may have some problems fitting saddle on him.

    I've gone through three saddles and finally found one that fit. I love it, he loves it.
