    Awwww what a lovely Standie. I have one too but he is being plagued by flies and is just not keeping his weight on like yours. Sorry, do not want to highjack this thread. I am not a good "critiquer" but wanted to say that it looks like you are doing a good job with your baby

    He looks great! The only thing that sticks out to me conformation-wise is where his back connects to his haunches along his topline. It looks like it curves the opposite way, like it's rounded. Maybe that's a trait particular to STB's though. Either way he's good-looking! He has a sweet face too :)

    His neck looks a little thin/weak, and his shoulder a little upright. But a handsome guy, nonetheless!

    If I were you I would get him checked out by a chiro/bodyworker. The way he is standing, coupled with that unsual coupling of back to loin, suggest to me that he may be in painsomehwere, possibly sciatic issues.

    Other than that, he's a lovely boy, and such a nice mahogany colour!

    He's got a roach back, and seems to be over at the knee a bit. His shoulder is slightly upright, and his hip is higher than his forehand.

    That said, he looks like a real sweet horse; has a really kind eye, and has a nicely refined head for a standardbred.

    Thanks! I don't care that his hip is higher than the forehand. That is a typical STB trait
