Arrow How does he look?

13.2 Ara/QH gelding. I've had him for a year and a half. I know they're no great pictures but what do you think?



This is as square as he will ever get. I'm bummed that he did it with a saddle on. Just generally - how does he look?



Bad pictures I know. ;/ but he's never been free lunged with a saddle on. I saw somethings that explained why he's so anxious/spooky, other things I can't fix on my own. Here's a "help" thread if any of you can:
High Anxiety/Spooking.

Thanks!
Amanda

I can tell he's really, really cute (I love this build) and looks great in that shade of blue, but not much else. Maybe get a few good conformation shots next time you're out?

He looks really good. Super cutie pie. He has way better conformation than my QH. He looks great though, look at the tail starting to go up when he is trotting! So cute, I love it when arabians do that. I can definitely see both traits in him.

Thank you. (: & He has the nice chiseled Arab head, trot, and attitude. I guess you just gotta meet him to know. (:

Thanks, lol. He is my baby, but he has the weirdest butt ever. Lol. Sometimes it seems like smaller horses are put together better. My guy is 15.3 and it awkward in some places and your guy is small but well put together. He has such a cute face too. But when they are small they seem to have more energy! My Mustang would wear EVERYONE! Out before he was even ready to do anything with him and he was 14hh. But I'm sure you will work out some of his anxiety issues, it takes a lot of time and hard work sometimes, but my Mustang came a LONG way after I got him. It just stinks that it takes so long sometimes.

He's certainly filled out wonderfully! Good work.
It's hard to get a good confo critique without any photos of him standing square, as he is now vs. then.
Just going by the older photo as he seems to be standing better, (i will excuse his topline of course & lack of muscling as that has improved definitely) all I can really see is that he appears slightly sickle-hocked in the back.

Thank you! I just recently noticed his hocks, yesterday actually.

Can you tell anything else? Anything I should concern?
