he looks just like my standy with that hogged mane

not that you can see it in that pic but his neck looks super chunky most of the time too until you look at it without the mane sticking up at the top :) he does have a much thicker neck though than normal but not nearly as much as it appears :)

even the side on shot is hard to critique other than his back and neck etc i dont think his back is too bad. if you measure it up against the length of his neck he actually appears a teeny bit long but nothing too drastic :)

i think he looks just lovely

awww what a gorgeous boy! love his dark colouring! and the action shots are just lovely... im a huge fan of Standardbreds (I own three) and think he's just gorgeous. nice and chunky... and with some more muscle to his neck, he'll look great!

The sideshot is straight from the side, what more should I think of? Maybe he's not standing like you're used to? (here, all horses should stand with the ''open'' side towards the photographer; the legs further away should be visible like on the photo) Or is it because he's standing in grass?

I can try to get a better pic on wednesday, I'll come visit him then :)

Thanks for all inputs and comments! :)

(It's something I like with non-swedish forums..not a single reply (yet at least) saying I he looks horrible or that I shouldn't ride him, becase he's a standardbred. I'm used to have at least one or two such replies at this time..)

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
