He's not even four months old so he doesn't look great right now conformation wise. But he shouldn't. He's a growing youngster and is probably going to look even more awkward. He's butt high and he's gonna see saw back and forth for a couple more years. That said, he's got beautiful coloring.

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

Yeah, I agree.

I figured I would show him this next season. I don't believe he will win much but I would like him to get used to the environment.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I agree with "Harlee rides horses", he is turned out on the front legs, and while the picture you posted of him from behind shows his legs to be correct looking, when a horse turns to itch notice they will always stand with their front legs a bit further apart always giving that "correct looking stance" but its for balance.

He is a little too straight in the shoulder for me, I like more angle along with a deeper V in the chest, hes a bit wide.

For reining, also I perfer lower set hocks, a little longer neck for to achieve the correct flextion in a spin.

He also appears to be a little up under himself on the front legs.

Love the color, and while its hard to give c&c on a foal, thats my opinion, he will do alot of changing though, and could grow out a little more as a 2 year old.

Keep posting his changes!
