Exclamation Critique palomino Thoroughbred stallion

The pictures were taken after about four months of standing in the pasture eating round bales so take into consideration he is trying to look like a five month pregnant brood mare right now and both he and I are aware of this.
His first foals are due in the spring of 2011









A few from this past spring while in training at his previous home:

Besides the chubbiness lol hes a beautiful horse with few faults. Starting at his head he has a nice clean throat latch and big ears. His neck may be a little bit to long but it may just be the angle of the photo. He seems to have a nice sloping shoulder with nice leg position. His forearm is nice and long and his cannon is pretty short. I'm not good at pasterns but they look like there a nice length. His back looks to short in the first photos but in the riding ones it looks fine so its probably a nice length. His hindquarters look nicely muscled. I'm not going to go to the back legs as I am NOT good at them! But I hope this is what you wanted! All in all I think he is a beautiful horse.

Gorgeous!
I dont think his neck is too long so much as his back looks too short. If he lost some weight & had a bit more muscling he'd probably look quite nice. The rest ofhim looks quite nice & again i LOVE his color. So rare to find a pb pally Thoroughbred!

Well if you measure his neck it should be 1/3 the size of his body. I think its probably both then.

Heres to hoping for a colorful foal crop for his first season! So excited to have this wonderful boy with us.
He will be bred to my two sabino colored Puchilingui daughters for 2012 foals.

are you sure he is purered TB? the TB breed does not carry the dilute modifier required to produce palomino or buckskin colouring.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Lol yep, those round bales will do it!
He's very elegant-looking, love his neck/throatlatch. He looks like a total sweetheart!

Faye I am with you. I scratch my head every time I see a coloured TB, because both the Australian studbook and the English one have no cream. I just can't compute a pally lol.

I think there must have been a time in the US when their books weren't as closed as they are now. Either that, or way back in yesteryear, a cream boy jumped a fence and fell in love with a beautiful TB lady

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
